The new-build Factory of the Future facility at Global Point, which will open in 2026, provides an opportunity to develop a purpose-built environment that is industrially relevant and open-access, catering for a wide range of sectoral needs with a technology-agnostic approach to delivering Industry 4.0 for companies at any scale.

The Factory of the Future will catalyse further investment at Global Point and throughout Northern Ireland, helping to create advanced manufacturing clusters to anchor green and resilient supply chains. The building will provide a safe space for industry to explore and de-risk manufacturing technology innovation and access state of the technology and skills.
