David Grey MBE, LEP Board Member and Chief Executive of Sheffield-based manufacturing group OSL Group Holdings Ltd, said,

“The aero engineering sector and supply chain capabilities in Sheffield City Region are world class, feeding into global brands like Boeing and Rolls Royce.

“Representing the LEP at this event is essential to ensure that we maximise our business opportunities in the UK, the second largest aerospace engineering market.

“I encourage attendees to visit us at the stand and find out more about the impressive incentives the City Region can offer.”

The Inward Investment team has planned a series of meetings with businesses to discuss investment opportunities in the City Region, and will network with members of the UK’s aerospace design, build, test, maintenance and supply chain engineering industries.

The Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, based in Rotherham, will also be at the expo, showcasing a number of exciting projects including work on the supersonic car Bloodhound SSC, which aims to enthuse a new generation of engineers.

Other City Region companies attending Advanced Engineering UK include Fripp Design & Research, AESSEAL and NetComposites. The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University will also be exhibiting.
