IPC are delighted to be part of an excellent programme at the upcoming Future of Automotive Conference being hosted by the North East Automotive Alliance. It’s particularly good to see workforce planning featuring as an important item on the agenda. Rapid changes in technology, regulation, and consumer behaviour are changing the work the sector needs to do, and the way that it does it. Action is needed now to develop the workforce for tomorrow, and we look forward to discussing this more at the Conference.

The automotive sector is entering unprecedented times in terms of the technology in the vehicles produced and how they are manufactured. This presents major challenges and significant opportunities for the North East automotive sector.

The North East is globally renown as a centre of excellence for automotive manufacturing. In recent years however, the region has also established significant capabilities in batteries, power electronics and electric motors. The North East manufacturing must capitalise on these strengths to ensure the region is at the forefront of the UK Government’s strategy to ensure the technologies of tomorrow are designed, developed and manufactured in the UK.
