News SME productivity club launched by the MTC

A new ‘SME Productivity Club’ has been launched by the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) further increasing its support for manufacturing businesses.

The initiative will offer a range of benefits including attendance at industry-specific workshops and an opportunity to network with like-minded businesses.

Andrew Mayfield, director of the MTC Business Launch Centre said: “The SME club is a further evolution of our SME activity, building on our success to date in providing services to help manufacturers compete locally and on the global stage.”

The SME Productivity Club will complement existing and targeted MTC assistance to manufacturers which includes:

• Improved manufacturing operational efficiency (Quality, Cost, Delivery)
• Help with the 
latest manufacturing technologies and roadmaps leveraging the facilities in MTC’s extensive workshop
• De-risk and accelerate the time to market for new product introduction, using the production capabilities in MTC’s
Business Launch Centre.

The MTC also offers the potential of up to 50 per cent match-funded support to assist SMEs in technology/productivity improvement under the SME Reach programme.

New high spec equipment and software for research projects is continually coming into the business. This gives many training opportunities and with work being so varied I don't think I would ever have the opportunity to get bored at the MTC. The MTC is also very determined to progress engineers to chartered status. This supports my development but also awards me with an internationally recognised qualification.
