Here at the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) we are always keen to find new ways to help you grow your business. As one way of making this happen, we would like to invite you along to our event tailored to manufacturing SMEs.

Why attend?

Our Manufacturing Operational Efficiency team can offer direct and practical support to SMEs who want to:

  • Improve operational efficiency (quality, cost & delivery)
  • Adopt the latest manufacturing technologies
  • De-risk investment in new product development
  • Access funding to support business improvement/capability enhancement

At this event, you'll have the opportunity to:

  • Have a 1-to-1 discussion with one of our experienced manufacturing practitioners, to see how we can help you
  • Find out how to access UK Government-backed funding for SMEs
  • Arrange a complimentary follow up line walk of your production facility from one of the MTC's experts - let a fresh pair of eyes help identify and agree key issues and opportunities for continuous, sustainable process improvement in your design & manufacturing processes
  • Join the MTC 'SME Productivity Club'

You will also have the opportunity to learn more about the support you can access through the Manufacturing Technology Centre, and take a tour of our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.

We can arrange for experienced engineers to be available on the day to discuss specific challenges you may have, if you would like us to call you to arrange a 1-to-1 discussion, please provide a contact number when registering.

What previous attendees say...

“Attending the MTC event was very useful. Having the opportunity to see the facilities at the site, discuss the potential for matched funding for projects e.g. automation and powder metallurgy analysis, and have a one-to-one detailed meeting made this a productive event for Reynolds.” - Keith Noronha, Managing Director, Reynolds Technology Ltd
