The Cumbria group is a new group being launched to support the growth of UK manufacturing. The group is currently recruiting new members and is open to meeting ambitious manufacturing leaders in the area.

Our goal is to support the growth of SME manufacturing businesses via an affordable membership model that connects like-minded people in the industry. We firmly believe that manufacturing is the backbone of the UK economy and every effort should be made to accelerate the growth of those with ambition. People just like you that have personal and business growth ambitions. People you can trust and willing to open up their doors to share great ideas and business best practice.

The Manufacturers’ Alliance approach has been designed to provide a safe place for manufacturing leaders to meet, share ideas and support each others growth, both personally and professionally.

The Manufacturers’ Alliance has a number of taster sessions planned for a new group launching in Cumbria. These taster sessions provide prospective new members with a chance to test the water and see whether the format works for them and their business.
