    Get in touch with us

    AMPI is an industry led initiative. We’d like to hear from UK companies to provide:

    Foresighting. We need to hear what machinery manufacturing challenges need addressing and how companies want to engage.

    Technical Assistance. If you have a technical challenge that you need help to resolve, then we’re available to support.

    Future funding. We welcome UK based firms as we continually build our portfolio of innovation and advanced machinery R&D.
