Leonardo in Newcastle

In October 2023, Leonardo opened a new site in Newcastle, where it will create at least 200 jobs, mainly in high-value science, engineering and data roles.

The high-technology science and engineering facility, located in the Newcastle Helix innovation cluster, will focus on research, development and prototyping of Leonardo’s next generation sensing, security and vertical lift products. This data-driven approach to design and manufacturing will see secure public cloud environments put big data at the fingertips of engineers in order to accelerate product development.
