Cheshire Fab Lab

Cheshire is to have its own Fab Lab, opening spring 2013 in Ellesmere Port and supported by C&W LEP.

The brainchild of renowned international scientist and inventor Professor Neil Gershenfeld, Fab Labs are fully-kitted-out workshops with digital fabrication technology which offers everyone in the community – from children and community groups through to schools, colleges, entrepreneurs and businesses – the capability to turn their ideas into reality.

Using state-of-the-art digital manufacturing technology including design software, a 3D printer, a 3D router and laser cutter, the Ellesmere Port Fab Lab will be capable of supporting production ideas from inception through to prototype.

The lab will be part of a global network of over 100 similar facilities and will be the third of its kind in the UK, following the successful establishment of Fab Labs in Manchester and Airedale.

Recruitment is underway for a Fab Lab Manager.
