In the month of May 2013 the CEO of the DAMRC Klaus Bonde Ørskov together with Brian Moran, Vice President in Boeing Northern Europe visited the AMRC at the Sheffield University, in order to discuss the future possibilities of cooperation and to gain inspiration when establishing the DAMRC test-facilities. The AMRC was at in the year 2010 one of the 12 founding partners of the DAMRC.
The DAMRC and the AMRC have through the last 3 years collaborated on both optimization projects in Danish manufacturing companies as well as educational courses for Danish technicians and engineers. The AMRC have since their founding at the millennium experienced a remarkable growth. Thus the English AMRC is today employing 250 highly educated employees and has a yearly turnover of 180 Mio. DKR. The turnover is equally divided between contributions from industrial companies, the English government and public research funds.
AMRC can document their contribution to creating at least 1600 industrial jobs within the local industry and especially from the year 2009 and till today the AMRC has experienced a growth with a threefold of the activities. This underpins the fact that R&D centers of this kind can expect an exponential growth when the foundation first is set. With the establishment of the DAMRC test-facilities, new interesting possibilities of collaborations between the DAMRC and the ARMC are present in the future.
