Providing the infrastructure to create advanced manufacturing jobs

   Councils  

South Tyneside Council, Sunderland City Council

The International Advanced Manufacturing Park (IAMP) will help the North East cement its place as a global leader in advanced manufacturing and innovation. A joint scheme led by South Tyneside and Sunderland City Councils, this nationally significant infrastructure project is expected to support more than £400m of private sector investment and create around 7,200 jobs over the next 10-15 years. The site has attracted more than £41m investment through the North East LEP’s Local Growth Fund towards infrastructure. Both councils have signed a joint-agreement with South Tyneside College, Sunderland College, and the University of Sunderland to ensure that IAMP has the skilled workforce needed to succeed and that local people have opportunities to secure new, skilled jobs. Work is already underway on IAMP One – the first phase of this game-changing development.
