Support for SME manufacturers

The Manufacturing Growth Programme supports SME manufacturers to grow by identifying, understanding and removing barriers to growth and enabling sustainable business improvement.

Free advice and support is provided by specialist manufacturing growth managers to manufacturing SMEs to:

  • Identify opportunities and create plans for growth and improvement
  • Work with the best external experts to implement those plans
  • Cover up to 35 percent of the cost of implementing the plans through an improvement grant
  • Connect to wider support to maximise opportunities for growth


Capital grants are also available. For further details visit the Manufacturing Growth Programme website.
