Plans revealed for major new tech facility in Cheshire

Date added: 12/03/2018

Cheshire’s Tatton Estate and Manchester Metropolitan University are collaborating to create a major new addition to the Liverpool-Manchester science corridor.

Tatton Estate and the University are to unveil plans at the world’s foremost property and investment event taking place in Cannes, France this week  to create a multi-million pound 3D printing facility between Altrincham and Knutsford and close to Manchester Airport.

The two parties will sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) at MIPIM at an event on the Cheshire and Warrington exhibition stand on Thursday, March 15, to create jointly the Cheshire 3D Print Hub (C3D).

It is anticipated that C3D will deliver an initial £6m investment in the North West, located on the Tatton Estate’s Yarwood Heath Farm, part of its Cheshire Gateway scheme. It will comprise some 40,000 sq ft of existing buildings accessed directly from Junction 7 of the M56 and the new Knutsford-Bowdon A556 dual carriageway.

C3D will also provide grow-on incubation space to accommodate the emerging North West Industrial Digital Technologies market and supplement Manchester Met’s existing central Manchester PrintCity® facilities. C3D will enable the implementation of advanced digital technologies in design, manufacture (3D printing/additive and advanced manufacturing) and service support.

Tatton Estate, the largest private landowner in Cheshire East and represented by the Tatton Group, is driving investment opportunities. Henry Brooks, Tatton Group managing director, said: "C3D is a very exciting prospect, regionally, nationally and internationally. It will help contribute to the global imperative for the UK and the North West to increase manufacturing, to create wealth, jobs and social cohesion.
