Millbrook celebrates SEMLEP funding for Technology Park

8 February 2015

Millbrook Technology Park
Millbrook, one of Europe’s leading design, test and engineering solution providers for the automotive, public transport, energy and defence markets, has secured Government funding from South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP) through Round Two of the Local Growth Deal.
 
The funding, which will support the infrastructure of Millbrook Technology Park, will create a high quality centre of excellence for innovative automotive research, development and small scale production, enabling more companies to be located on site and creating a significant number of highly skilled jobs within the automotive engineering and technology sector.
 
Millbrook is ideally positioned midway between London and the Midlands and in recent years the area has become a magnet for high-tech industry and a hub for innovation and entrepreneurial activity. The Technology Park will build upon existing expertise in automotive test and development and encourage increased partnership opportunities with world class engineering, research and development companies who will be located on site.
 
Alex Burns, CEO of Millbrook said: “I am delighted that we have received investment from SEMLEP. Millbrook is leading the way in automotive innovation and this additional funding will form part of our ongoing strategy to expand our facilities for research and development, enabling us to further support our customers in the design, test and engineering of the most advanced vehicles of the future.”
 
Dr Ann Limb OBE DL, chair of SEMLEP commented: “The projects supported by this funding build on the strengths of our area as identified in our Strategic Economic Plan; investing in key assets, such as Millbrook and our key sectors, including advanced engineering to deliver highly skilled jobs.”
 
As part of its initial activity into the launch of the Technology Park, Millbrook is holding a stakeholder event on Friday 6 February, where key partners will have the unique opportunity to ‘see inside Millbrook’ and find out more about its plans for the future.
