What is The Manufacturing Hub?

The Manufacturing Hub is the ‘go to place’ for essential services that will help your business unlock its potential and grow.

With the demise of the Manufacturing Advisory Service leaving a void for specialist industrial support, a collective of five organisations have joined forces to provide a single source solution for manufacturers looking to access high quality continuous improvement, lean production, funding, strategy and sales and marketing support.

All partners in the hub – Alison Phillips, Cucumber PR, Rachel Eade Developments and Start 2 Finish Marketing – have significant experience of delivering expertise and guidance to companies touching every sector of UK industry.

They understand what makes manufacturers tick, stripping back the support jargon and getting to grips with the challenges and opportunities affecting your business.

This could involve tapping into the knowledge of each member company or just handpicking one or two specialists that will work seamlessly together to improve efficiency, reduce waste, target new sales or build your brand.
