The Wakefield Manufacturing Forum is delighted to host our next event at the brand new Xplor facility at Production Park...

The Wakefield Manufacturing Forum is delighted to partner with XPLOR to welcome members of our community to their brand new £7m+ facility.

As a marquee site in our area, the new facility boasts large-scale design and prototype spaces for testing, modelling, and building physical and virtual environments. The workshop holds specialist rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing equipment. This event will give you a full site tour of Xplor and the wider Production Park site, and also discuss the industry-leading capabilities and services on offer.

The Wakefield Manufacturing Forum is going through an exciting period. There will be project updates on our current work with Wakefield College and the West Yorkshire Manufacturing Task Force, and advice on how local manufacturers can get involved. There will also be an overall update on the recent changes to the company and our future plans.
