Firm focus on South Derbyshire manufacturing at Support and Grow business event

South Derbyshire manufacturers are being invited to learn more about decarbonisation grants, other funding opportunities and wider business support at an event dedicated to their sector, taking place at South Derbyshire CVS in Swadlincote on 16th July.

The Support & Grow breakfast event, being delivered by East Midlands Chamber as part of the Accelerator project, will assist manufacturers in finding out about the support they can tap into both locally and nationally to accelerate their growth.

Opportunities include digitisation through a Made Smarter grant, improving energy efficiency through decarbonisation grants and a fully funded energy audit, and enlisting the support of a digital skills coach.

South Derbyshire business Devtank, a manufacturer of test and measurement solutions, will share its own story of growth and how this has been expedited by Chamber support and grant funding.

East Midlands Chamber Head of Business Support Services Paul Stuart said: “Our role at the Chamber is to help businesses navigate the funding landscape and to access the right support for the right project at the right time.

“Devtank, which celebrates its tenth anniversary this year, is a perfect example of how such targeted support can help a business flourish. The Accelerator project, funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, is an effective gateway into accessing such support.”

One of the Chamber’s Digital Transformation Specialists, David Dobson, will also present on how the national Made Smarter programme can help businesses improve their competitive edge and East Midlands Manufacturing Network Adviser Deborah Rogers will be outlining the benefits of free membership to the Chamber’s dedicated manufacturing network.
