As a Manufacturing RD I have for the last 3 years led on a local manufacturing partnership in conjunction with the local Chamber of Commerce. As a group we seek to bring purely manufacturers together in the county to network, learn from each other and most enjoyably benefit from site visits. It has given manufacturers an opportunity to look around some great factories such as the state of the art JLR site at I54, Caterpillar, Stadco and many more local manufacturers.
Along a similar theme, I have for the last 4 years judged the best manufacturing award at the Shropshire Business Awards. This gives Manufacturers of all sizes the opportunity to really promote their business and gives such satisfaction to just be nominated and celebrate local business success.
