ATS International announced that it will become a member of the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, a joint initiative from Britain's University of Sheffield and global aircraft manufacturer Boeing with a mission to create a Centre of Manufacturing Excellence.

The focus of the AMRC has expanded from studying design, engineering and tooling techniques to investigating ways to improve manufacturing and business processes. For the last two years, Mike James, Group Managing Director of ATS, has led an ATS team involved in a Shop Floor IT project to design, implement and support systems at Rolls-Royce Aerospace factories. This initiative is investigating ways to improve manufacturing processes and strengthen the enterprise's Business Improvement, Lean manufacturing and Six Sigma efforts.

The University's AMRC and Boeing have engaged in a partnership including Rolls-Royce, intended to build on the shared scientific excellence, expertise and technological innovation of the world's leading aerospace companies and the world-class research center at the University of Sheffield's Faculty of Engineering.
