£10m of opportunities

A new manufacturing cluster has been established to target more than £10m of electrification opportunities over the next 12 months.

Brandauer, C-MAC SMT and PP Control & Automation – all members of the Manufacturing Assembly Network (MAN) – have come together to offer a single-source supply-chain solution for electric motors, drivetrain components, battery cells, casings and housings, transfer laminations, PCB assemblies, and wider infrastructure services.
The trio has also enlisted the expertise of industrial automation specialist Balluff to drive the opportunity. This joined-up approach is already reaping dividends by helping the new cluster secure in excess of £3m of off-highway automotive contracts and an order for an upwind turbine system from FuturEnergy.
