The project – comprising a 34-acre site with associated infrastructure and services – will address a national shortage of high-quality buildings for the advanced manufacturing sector and could bring up to 1,000 jobs to the area.

The client, Cleveland Property Investments, are working with Middlesbrough Council and Tees Valley Combined Authority (TVCA) to bring the park to life.

“We are in talks with a number of companies who are interested in moving to TeesAMP – bringing high-quality advanced manufacturing jobs with them – and that’s what it’s all about.”

– Geoff Hogg, Cleveland Property Investments

Working in partnership with local suppliers

Teesside firms have been hired to take the project from blueprint to reality – and more are being sought.

“We always seek to use as local a supply base as possible on our projects. Given the strong steel heritage of the Tees Valley, it was particularly important that we were able to commission a local steel fabricator."

– Garry Hope, Managing Director of Robertson Central East

Stockton contractor Nationwide Structures will deliver a steel fabrication contract worth £1.3m, using as much local steel as possible – around 90% from Redcar's British Steel.

“I think that’s about as local as you can get. Sourcing local materials is a huge benefit to industry in the area and we’re delighted to have been appointed.”

– Andy Dagnall, Regional Manager of Nationwide Structures

British Steel will supply almost all 750 tonnes needed to build the scheme.

This project is a great example of how the supply chain can work together to boost local communities, economies and industries.”

– Richard Farnsworth, British Steel’s Managing Director Construction
