The project, offered by the AMRC in support of Boeing's industrial commitment to Denmark, would bring together industry, government and academic institutions to create a Danish center of excellence for the development of advanced manufacturing methods — including those related to composite materials — needed in key growth industries such as energy and aerospace.
MOU partners include Danish industry leaders Danish Aerotech, Multicut, Terma, and Unimerco; Aarhus University; the Center for Sikkerhedsindustrien (CenSec), a Danish defense and security industry association; Erhvervsraadet Herning & Ikast-Brande, Herning's business development center; Herning Municipality; and Region Midtjylland.
"A decade ago I had the privilege of representing Boeing at the opening of the AMRC, which I saw as the beginning of exciting opportunities to come for industry, research and the work force," said Tom Bell, vice president of Business Development for Boeing Military Aircraft. "The success of the AMRC With Boeing has far exceeded its promise."
Today the ARMC is a £60 million collaboration among more than 40 partner organizations, comprising world leaders in the aerospace supply chain, key government offices and international academic institutions. The center's staff has increased tenfold to more than 100 employees, and the AMRC model has been replicated in Australia, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany and India. "I look forward to seeing the opportunities that an AMRC would bring to Denmark," Bell added.
