We have a fantastic opportunity available for manufacturing companies, but first a little background.
We feel that if the government is going to help the country to recover from the global downturn as quickly as possible, it needs to invest in business. Luckily there are still some support opportunities for some sectors.
Germany has recovered far better from the recession than the UK because they have a strong manufacturing sector.
One of the great things that the government is doing, is helping to strengthen and increase the UK manufacturing industry via the Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS).
MAS have match funding available to help any company that can be classed as 'a manufacturing company'. This funding is to be used for various business improvement tasks including:
…but overall increasing the success and profits of manufacturing companies.
If the government are investing in business in general, then the country will prosper as there will be less unemployment and more disposable income.
It is very difficult to become an approved MAS supplier, in fact we have been informed that they are not currently accepting new suppliers.
We have formed a strong business alliance with a business consultancy; ResQ Management Resources.
ResQ are already an authorised MAS supplier and have 'made' and 'saved' millions of pounds for their clients. Our business alliance with ResQ means that some of our services are able to fall under the criteria for MAS funding, meaning that we can provide some of our consultancy and web design services match funded.
For example, we are currently finalising the details with a manufacturer of granite worktops to produce an e-commerce website with a value of £5400 (plus VAT). This project will be 'match funded' saving the client 50% of this cost.
As a result of working with us, this client will be able to increase sales into their business. Then by working with ResQ, they will be able to increase productivity and reduce waste from the business, this complete process will make and save them a significant amount of money.
This kind of improvement will enable our client to grow their business, this type of growth is exactly what the UK needs.
If you are reading this article and you know a manufacturing organisation that would like to take advantage of this type of opportunity, please pass on our details.
We are uniquely placed to supply these organisations and have a proven track record with other manufacturing based clients.
We will be adding case studies to our website as we complete work for these types of clients, so watch this space. :O)
