Specialist Manufacturing Growth Managers came together to help provide support to businesses in the West Midlands, Yorkshire, Humber, parts of the East Midlands South East and East of England, by offering Manufacturing SME’s to opportunity to join the Manufacturing Growth Programme.
The Manufacturing Growth Programme was created to support SME Manufacturers to flourish by understanding and removing the obstacles that can prevent growth and enabling sustainable business improvement. The programme provided free advise to help identify opportunities, create growth and improvement plans, establish connections to wider support, and offer ‘Improvement Grants’, that covered up to 35% of the implementation costs.
At the end of March 18′ the results came in, the programme was a success with over 2000 grants offered to SME’s. See charts below.
