Supercar manufacturer McLaren Automotive opened its £50 million innovation and manufacturing facility in Yorkshire on November 14, 2018. The innovation and manufacturing facility will build carbon fiber chassis for McLaren’s new models from 2020 - creating around 200 jobs and providing an estimated £100 million of GVA (gross value added) benefit to the local economy by 2028. The £50 million McLaren Composites Technology Centre (MCTC), on the border of Sheffield and Rotherham, next to the University of Sheffield’s AMRC, aims to become a world-leader in lightweight carbon fibre and composites technology.
