Transport Equipment Manufacturing

 

The Transport Equipment Manufacturing sector covers the production of aerospace, automotive and rail transport vehicles and is 40% more productive in D2N2 than elsewhere in the UK.

Built on many years of innovation and manufacturing expertise, the D2N2 area is synonymous with the transport equipment manufacturing sector, given the presence of a number of large and globally significant employers such as Toyota, Rolls Royce and Bombardier and their significant local supply chains, areas across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.
