Manufacturers offered help to prepare for Brexit
Local manufacturers are invited to a free Cheshire East Council-backed event to help them plan and prepare for Brexit.
The workshop, entitled 'Preparing your manufacturing business for Brexit' will be held on Thursday 22 February, from 8am to11.30am, at Sandbach business Delta Balustrades, which makes and installs balustrades and handrail systems.
This event is organised by the council's arm-length Skills and Growth Company, in partnership with Manufacturing Growth Fund initiative. It will offer an outline of what Brexit means for small and medium manufacturing firms, providing them with the tools and know-how to start preparing now.
Speakers will provide an outline of the implications of Brexit for British manufacturers, advice on import and export processes, negotiating the best currency deals and opening up new markets.
Attendees can also take part in workshops to help them grasp the practical implications of Brexit and put together a plan for their business.
There will also be a chance to seek further specialised advice from the event's speakers, and explore how the Manufacturing Growth Fund could help with funding of up to 30 per cent for eligible projects, including those that lead to job creation, help to develop new products or services and drive up productivity.
Councillor George Hayes, chairman of the Skills and Growth Company, said: "While trade deals and timelines are to be negotiated, there are preparations that businesses need to start making now, to ensure they are best prepared. Developing a plan to prepare for Brexit now, no matter what the outcome of negotiations, will ensure that you are able to service your customers and continue with business as usual.
"I urge all businesses — in particular those manufacturing goods for export or who rely on imported components — to attend."
