Professional partners, including FBC Manby Bowdler and Moore Stephens, have also been appointed to help the companies overcome barriers to growth and sustainability through legal/HR advice and support by tapping into finance and managing expansion.

He added that ITMG was created also for the group to share the latest information and best practice.

ITMG will be delivering a series of sector-specific seminars, starting with an open house celebration at the £4-million Marches Centre of Manufacturing & Technology in Bridgnorth on 28 June 2018. With keynote presentations and live demonstrations, the event will focus on advanced technologies currently supporting the aerospace sector and how the UK supply chain can make better use of automation, Industry 4.0 and a highly skilled workforce to achieve higher levels of productivity.
