Leading Industry 4.0 initiatives

From the creative sparks imagining new materials and processes; to the geniuses designing futuristic cars and ships. From the innovators making solar panels and wind turbines; to the chemists discovering new drugs and the scientists rolling back frontiers. In factories, science parks and university laboratories; in every corner of this great manufacturing region; we are creating something special.
One of the biggest opportunities for manufacturing firms in Liverpool City Region is the access to a new ports and logistics infrastructure. More than £1 billion of intermodal infrastructure investment, two international airports in the region and a new deep-water container terminal, means faster global supply chain transit for products made here.
We are home to some of the world’s leading manufacturers with Jaguar Land Rover; Unilever; Pilkington; Cammell Laird; AstraZeneca; and Orsted all having significant operations here. With PSA/Vauxhall; Airbus; Toyota and Bentley close by.
Liverpool City region is leading the way on Industry 4.0, with the ambition, the talent and the tools to lead the fourth industrial revolution. We’ve got the largest supercomputing facility for industrial applications in the UK and the highest concentration of robotics for materials science in the world. But there’s nothing artificial about our intelligence. And there’s nothing robotic about our people.
