​The Engineering and Manufacturing sector in Greater Lincolnshire

Greater Lincolnshire boasts some of the UK’s most innovative and exciting Engineering and Manufacturing employers including Siemens, NMB Minebea, Tong Engineering and British Steel. So why have they decided to ‘set up shop’ within this region?

Could it be because of the:

  • 48,000 workers within the industry?
  • The first purpose built school of Engineering in the UK for 25 years?
  • Maybe because Greater Lincolnshire is the UK’s second largest county?
  • Or the two gold standard Universities in the region?
  • The first rubber tyred road vehicle was built in Greater Lincolnshire?
  • The first diesel running engine in the UK was built here?
  • The first tank was invented in the region?

“We are proud to be associated with Lincolnshire and it’s great engineering and manufacturing heritage. We support the global aerospace industry and Lincolnshire has always succeeded in attracting the right person for the job”- Alan Morton, Sales Manager, NMB Minebea.
