A message from Andrew Storer, CEO of the Nuclear AMRC:

The Nuclear AMRC remains open to support manufacturers through this difficult time.

We have more than 145 staff now working from home to meet the needs of our members, customers and stakeholders.

To ensure the health and safety of our staff, we have temporarily suspended projects in our workshops in Rotherham, Birkenhead and Derby in line with government guidelines. As far as possible, we continue to support our partners and customers through delivery of our projects away from our facilities.

If there is any assistance that we can offer you during this trying time, please do not hesitate to get in contact.

Contacting staff

All Nuclear AMRC staff are working from home, and can be contacted as usual by email or telephone. We have access to a variety of videoconferencing services for group meetings.

For general enquiries, please email

You can also follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn for updates and industry news.

Helping the national response

As part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, we are supporting the national effort to step up production of vital medical equipment such as ventilators. For details on the industry consortium led by HVM Catapult CEO Dick Elsy, see VentilatorChallengeUK.

For more information on how the supply chain can help the national response to the crisis, visit the Institute for Manufacturing’s page on manufacturing and Covid-19 which features links to a number of collaborative projects that you or your organisation could support.

If you have a proposal for new research or innovation to support the pandemic response, UKRI has an open call for research and innovation ideas to address Covid-19.

Support for your business

For information about the measures available to help your business through this crisis, please visit the government’s coronavirus business support site.

Industry group Make UK has produced a webinar on business support for manufacturers and offers regular updates on the impact of coronavirus on manufacturing.

Companies on the Fit For Nuclear programme can contact their industrial advisor for an informal discussion.

We will update this page as the situation develops.
