We want Lancashire’s manufacturing community to thrive.

The Manufacturing Growth Fund is here to support small to medium-sized manufacturers across Lancashire. We aim to drive productivity, grow operations, create jobs and introduce new products and services.

Our advisors are experts in the manufacturing and engineering sector. They’ll work with you to understand your growth ambitions, visit your site and get to grips with any challenges you face.

Working with you, they’ll scope out a project where input from a specialist consultant or investment in a new piece of machinery or technology could unlock your growth ambitions and can help you to find the right external provider for your business.

Always on the lookout for a better way!
