With our strong industrial heritage and reputation for quality and excellence, manufacturing has always been at the heart of Middlesbrough. The area offers an extensive and diverse supply chain, as well as world-class research facilities to support innovation and transform technologies.

Middlesbrough and surrounding areas are home to a large number of advanced manufacturing and engineering businesses operating across all industries, from aerospace and automotive to renewable energy and chemicals. The strength of manufacturing in the area is due to the process, offshore, and energy sectors, which form the industrial economic base.

One of the biggest benefits for manufacturing businesses in Middlesbrough is access to a strong logistics network encompassing rail, road, air and port. There will also be numerous supply chain opportunities arising from the nearby South Tees Development Corporation site.

The Teesside Advanced Manufacturing Park (TeesAMP) development is nationally significant, cementing Middlesbrough and the Tees Valley as a leading area for innovation in advanced manufacturing.

Representing an investment of £55m, TeesAMP will make a significant contribution to the economy of Tees Valley attracting companies that will lead the way for developments in the sector.
