Manufacturing Advisory Services (mas)

Who we can help

MAS now part of the Business Growth Service is open to any company provided they are engaged in manufacturing regardless of size. You must be a manufacturer based in England to access our support.
We work with small and medium sized manufacturers and can provide grant funding for some projects. Larger companies can use our resources at market rates – we provide support for larger manufacturing companies to develop supply chains, and can assist with sourcing small and medium companies to provide services.

How we define a manufacturer

The definition we use for manufacturing makes a strong distinction between production (the physical processes of making, bending, etc.) and manufacturing (the overarching process of getting raw materials to goods and their associated services). By taking this approach to defining manufacturing it becomes easier to see that although an organisation may choose to outsource its production activities, it remains at heart a manufacturing company.

We can offer funded support to SME manufacturers in England

Your company can call itself an SME if:
  • Less than 250 employees
  • Having an annual turnover of less than €50m or a balance sheet of less than €43m
  • Not part of a group which in itself exceeds one of the criteria above.
