Manufacturing is under focus in Lancashire

Manufacturing bosses are being invited to attend the free events from June 28 to July 1 which will showcase business support opportunities and inspiring success stories.

Among the issues being discussed will be funding options available to manufacturers, tackling skills shortages, innovation, exports and tax matters. Ginni Cooper, head of the manufacturing team at Blackpool-based Moore and Smalley chartered accountants, one of the partners behind the week, said: “Lancashire is full of inspiring manufacturing businesses and this week is dedicated to shining a spotlight on them on and how they can achieve greater success.

“Of course, there are many challenges out there too in what is still a fragile economy, but the aim of this week of free events is to equip manufacturers with the information and knowledge needed to grow.”
