Following the official launch of The North East Automotive Alliance (NEAA) NRG is pleased to announce its partnership with the NEAA.

The NEAA is an important body for the automotive industry and the region; its work centres on the promotion and growth of automotive businesses in the North East.

The NEAA brings together leading names from the region’s automotive industry (Nissan, Sevcon and Komatsu), supply-chain businesses and business support organisations.

Research released by the NEAA suggests that the automotive industry generates £7bn in sales for the North East and is responsible for £5.1bn in exports; creating £2.6bn trade surplus annually.

Julie Mordue, Business Development Manager, NRG comments: “NRG is delighted to partner with the NEAA, this organisation will represent businesses and professionals in the industry, help to capitalise on change and support issues as they arise. This includes aging workforce, skills gaps, supporting supply chains in innovation, benchmarking, best practice and showcasing the region’s automotive excellence on a global scale.”

“The formation of this group is an important step for the region. The North East’s automotive sector is a huge employer; 26,000 people are employed directly and the supply chain employs over 141,000 people. To harness potential and continue growth in the industry we need a body to represent them and the NEAA is well equipped to do this”.
