The Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS) works to support manufacturers based in England. MAS has a team of specialist manufacturing advisors dedicated to helping SME manufacturing businesses improve and grow. A MAS advisor can provide a free review of the business, identify priority areas and may then be able to offer some grant funding to contribute towards improvement costs or projects. MAS also provides training and networking events to help improve awareness and skills related to manufacturing.
