Developments at Airbus, Flintshire, the largest manufacturing facility in the UK, plus talk on Advanced Manufacturing and tours of two Airbus factories and visit to Advanced Composite Centre (Total time approx 3 hours)

Venue: Broughton Lodge, Chester Rd, Broughton, Chester, Cheshire CH4 0DR 01244 520 444

This is your chance to hear about the Developments at Airbus, Broughton, which is currently the largest manufacturing facility in the UK with approx. 3.5m sq ft of manufacturing space and 7200 employees. The talk will cover the input of central and local government and will include tours of the Airbus West Factory (A380) and North Factory (the new A350 North Factory making composite fibre aircraft wings.) There is a lot to see on site and we are also fortunate to be able to offer a Tour of the Advanced Composites Training and Development Centre, which is training Airbus and other company staff in the use of new materials and is close to the Airbus site.



Places for the free talks and tours are strictly limited so your registration will be required ASAP after the final details are confirmed by mid August. As security is an issue, your name and full contact details will be required to be passed to Airbus. A minibus will be laid on providing free transport from/to Chester Station and Airbus for those who wish to use public transport.
