The Manufacturing Growth Programme is designed to support SME manufacturers to grow by identifying, understanding and removing barriers to growth, and enabling sustainable business growth.
The £9.7m scheme is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and delivered by Economic Growth Solutions (EGS) in the West Midlands, Yorkshire and Humber, parts of the East Midlands and East of England.
With a team of dedicated Growth Managers, SMEs can benefit from free consultation to establish practical steps to achieve business growth, as well as access up to 35% grant funding towards the cost of an improvement project.
The grant has an average value of £1,400 and can be used for revenue based activity such as engaging with a third party specialist or business professional.
For further information, SMEs in The Marches and Worcestershire should contact Catherine Bray at EGS on 01664-501301 or visit www.manufacturinggrowthprogramme.co.uk .
