Small manufacturers nationwide can access free support to help them expand, following the re-launch of the Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS).
Manufacturers can access support through four main services:
"Manufacturing contributes half of Britain's exports and has much higher productivity than the rest of the economy so it's essential to our plans for growth," said small business minister Mark Prisk. "The new MAS will play a key role, providing tailored advice to businesses helping them to grow and thrive, with specific focus on helping small firms improve their competitiveness and unlock their growth potential."
MAS head Karl Eddy added: "As we drive this historically successful programme in to a new era we encourage business leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs in the manufacturing sector to contact a local adviser to find out more about how MAS can deliver real benefits for their business."
