Funding for manufacturers from MAS
Nigel White

I was until recently unaware of the Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS), but last week attended an innovation seminar where I learned a little about them.  If your company manufactures and you would like support to grow and improve your SME business, then the MAS might be a good place to turn.

They offer free analysis and advice on business improvement and in addition to that, match-funded financial support for up to £3,000 (50% of the total project cost).  There are a whole host of eligible projects including business strategy,  cost reduction, marketing, design and development, IP rights and many more.  You can learn more about the MAS here www.mymas.org
