Northern Ireland has a vibrant and highly sophisticated advanced manufacturing and engineering sector.
In recent years employment in the Northern Ireland manufacturing sector has grown more than four times faster than the rest of the UK. Manufacturing accounts for 11% of employment and over 15% of GVA, making it a key sector in the Northern Ireland economy.
The region is home to a range of indigenous and international companies, engaged in the full range of activities from R&D through new product development to manufacturing. A strong focus on R&D investment and commitment to product & process and design & development ensure the sector continues to grow and experience success.
The Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering Sector is supported by our Ambassador Circle Advisory Panel.
