Project Description

LOCALISED MANUFACTURING CENTRE (LMC)

TDI’s Localised Manufacturing Centre (LMC) is a disruptive thinking concept which is designed to support the regional and local economies prosperity, where are products are used.

LOCALISED MANUFACTURING CENTRE (LMC)

A major sustainable initiative for TDI is our Localised Manufacturing Centre (LMC) or LMC concept. This concept will aid investment in several UK wide “local” economies, for both short and long term, futures. This will be done by supporting:

SUPPLY CHAIN

Our supply chain will be proactively set out to use more than 70% of localised suppliers (within 30 miles of LMC) increasing employment and technical skills within the region’s supplier base.

LABOUR MODEL

The Localised Manufacturing Centre (LMC) labour model focuses on maximizing use of local resources in the manufacturing of our products. We proactively seek to use localized labour and use skills from the local communities and teaching institutions (universities, colleges, and apprenticeships) to work with our experts to ensure the correct skillsets exist and develop long term relationships and knowhow.

ADVANCED BUILD & MANUFACTURING SYSTEM

We use state of the art digitally advanced build and manufacturing systems which enables us to use world class build management techniques, create safety critical documentation during the build and, importantly, enable access to our high-tech resources when required.

Our LMC concept, will leave an enduring legacy of skilled resource, longevity of product in service and will ensure that local communities are supported for long term prosperity.
