The Manufacturing Growth Fund offers SMEs in the Manufacturing and Engineering sectors across the North West (Cheshire & Warrington, Cumbria, Greater
Manchester, Lancashire and the Liverpool City region) impartial advice to help assess the opportunities and barriers to growth, making business improvement
recommendations and suggesting a suitable consultancy project which will increase profitability and productivity by offering a grant towards the cost
of bringing in specialist expertise for eligible projects.
The Growth Funds are available to businesses with the ambition to grow who are looking to:
• Increase production capacity
• Streamline manufacturing processes
• Increase innovation
• Access new markets
Support is available for projects with a value of around £15,000 which would attract a 36% grant of £5,400. Eligible projects include those that lead to
job creation, help to develop new products or services and bring them to market, plus drive up productivity and operational efficiency.
Businesses benefiting from the grant will need to fund 64% of the consultancy project themselves.
