Manufuacturing Growth Grant

Hertfordshire manufacturers can benefit from a grant programme to help them access expertise and consultancy. The Manufacturing Growth Programme from Economic Growth Solutions part-funds projects such as:

  • management systems
  • improving cyber-security
  • coaching
  • developing and implementing business strategy and leadership

The range of eligible projects is wide, and applying for the grant is easy and quick. This scheme is for SME manufacturers; the definition of manufacturing is quite broad, including companies who design products but outsource their making, and also firms who buy in and assemble components manufactured elsewhere.

The flexibility of the grant means firms can simply use their preferred consultant, or get help to find someone with the specific expertise required. External specialist help means getting precisely the right expertise, just when it’s needed, from someone with real experience in understanding and achieving the business’s goals. Consultants don’t have to get onto an Approved Supplier list, and the client only needs to submit one quotation – no further quotations are needed.

For further information contact the Manufacturing Growth Manager, Amanda Freeland by email amanda.freeland@egs.live or by telephone 07973 946529 to discuss your project.
