Following the triggering of Article 50, manufacturing businesses in north Derbyshire can find out more about the support available to them post Brexit at a free lunchtime event being held at Casa Hotel on Wednesday 10 May.
The Chesterfield Manufacturing and Engineering Forum event is being organised by Destination Chesterfield with support from United Cast Bar Ltd and NatWest.
With manufacturing accounting for 45% of all UK exports, north east Derbyshire manufacturers have a vested interest in ensuring the Government negotiates a deal that supports their trade and growth ambitions.
With this in mind, a number of key speakers have been lined up for the event, including Andy Tuscher from the EEF The Manufacturers’ Organisation, who will address the government’s industrial strategy and also Brexit. EEF support and champion manufacturing and engineering in the UK and Europe and is working to secure a smooth and orderly exit from the EU.
Darren Buxton, a business growth specialist from Sheffield City Region Growth Hub, will also talk about SCR’s work to support business growth, and the support and skills programmes available to companies operating in north Derbyshire’s manufacturing sector.
Dom Stevens, Destination Chesterfield Manager commented: “The free event is an important opportunity for businesses in north Derbyshire’s manufacturing sector to gain a greater understanding of what can be expected following Brexit. Attending the forum event will enable them to discover what support is out there for them to be able to continue moving forward in times of financial and political uncertainty.”
The Chesterfield Manufacturing and Engineering Forum established in 2013 in order to bring together businesses operating within north Derbyshire’s engineering and manufacturing sector and also provide information that can support their growth.
