On March 21st, we are inviting all of our Supply Chain Partners (Tier 1 & 2) & the UK Automotive OEMs to disseminate our findings from our supply chain mapping activities and begin ‘joining the dots’.
Over the past 12 months, the CLSP team has visited over 20 Tier 1s & 2s to fully understand their processes, aligning their manufacturing capabilities to the Automotive Councils MRL levels, to allow the group to identify the wider gaps and opportunities. In parallel, the CLSP team has been building a 10 year plan to realise the potential £1.5Bn value of the supply chain by 2030 as identified by the CLF, and has coordinated this activity with the UK OEMs.
The purpose of this event is to bring together all the key stakeholders in the supply chain, to increase collaboration between the OEMs, Tier 1s & Tier 2s, and to identify the route to realising this potential.
As well as presentations from the CLSP team, there will be opportunities for attendees to talk with one another and build links across the supply chain.
The Composites Large Scale Project(CLSP), is a programme of work which will enable a competitive high volume composites supply chain cluster to deliver light-weight structures for automotive applications from 2020 onward.
The programme has the support of over 50 UK businesses within the UK that are looking to be part of distinctive, globally competitive value chains to address this emerging market. With an Industrial Advisory Group of McLaren, Nissan, Bentley, JLR, Aston Martin, Ford, Lotus & GKN, plus the wider pool of 50+ as mentioned, the CLSP has been organising events and conducting supply chain studies to identify the gaps and opportunities for the wider supply chain to capitalise on, ensuring that the UK is at the forefront of high volume light-weighting development.
