Industry 4.0

The West Midlands has a strong manufacturing base and a proud heritage, playing a leading role in the Industrial Revolution. In addition, our region is being transformed through billions of pounds of investment in new construction projects, including HS2 linking Birmingham and London.

Faster, reliable and wireless: 5G is the gearshift that can change the way the region’s manufacturing and construction companies operate.

The term Industry 4.0 is the name given to the fourth Industrial Revolution, where technology, and crucially 5G, helps to transform traditional industries and ways of working.

Imagine being able to change production lines easily and quickly to meet changing demand, reacting to customer orders instantly.

Or improving workplace safety with technology undertaking hazardous activities.

Increasing productivity, removing waste and improving the physical and mental wellbeing of employees are just some of the benefits early adopters of 5G will explore as they work with us.

WM5G is actively engaged with organisations of all sizes in the region’s construction and manufacturing sector, working on projects to test and prove real business benefits.
