Enscite is an essential component of Infinity Park, Derby – a new 100-acre manufacturing and technology business park located alongside the A50 and next door to the world headquarters of Rolls-Royce Civil Aerospace.
At the heart of Infinity Park, Derby is the ihub – an iconic new building offering office and workshop space to advanced manufacturing companies and start-up businesses. From our base in the new ihub, Enscite will offer incubation and support services to companies within – or those wishing to access – transport engineering supply chains. These services will help growth-oriented companies develop new revenue streams, access professional advice in a range of areas (such as IP protection, funding and investment, bid writing and business planning) and link to cutting edge knowledge and research across Enscite’s delivery partner network.
iLabs are places where you can access advanced digital manufacturing technology to turn new ideas into potential products. Such labs provide widespread access to modern means for invention, a concept that began as an outreach project from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Center for Bits and Atoms (CBA).
iLabs provide low cost, easy access workshop space fitted with a range of cutting edge digital design and fabrication technology (e.g. CNC machining, 3D printing, vacuum casting). They help companies innovate without large capital investment and massively reduce the time for prototyping new designs.
We have introduced this concept to the ihub to encourage both existing transport engineering companies and budding entrepreneurs to develop and test new product ideas quickly and cheaply. Our iLab comes with the support of skilled technicians to help users get the most out of the equipment.
