The International Advanced Manufacturing Park (IAMP) is a joint venture between Sunderland and South Tyneside Councils. The IAMP development is expected to be located in the area north of Sunderland's Nissan car plant close to the A19(T).
We have a shared ambition to build on a set of opportunities to develop a high quality strategic employment site for advanced manufacturing that will be an attractive location for national and international business investment and job creation.
A key part of accelerating economic growth is creating the conditions for private sector investment - supporting the ability of companies to trade on a national and international basis, ensuring the mobility and supply of local labour and a local supply chain and making suitable land available for commercial growth.
The IAMP aims to expand upon the existing North East automotive manufacturing hub and will continue the strong local track record of a location for high quality, adaptable manufacturing. This project will enable the construction of infrastructure, bringing a over £400million in private sector investment and the creation of over 7,000 new jobs by 2026/27.
