What's Been Happening

Book a line walk today

The MTC's Manufacturing Support Services team works with manufacturers to help embrace the latest technology and improve competitiveness.

As a first step we offer a complimentary 'Line Walk', to explore and agree how we can bring value to your business.

Hundreds of clients have expressed their appreciation of this business review, often aware of opportunities though didn't know where to start, or just wanted a fresh, experienced viewpoint to make more informed decisions.

Each line walk typically takes 3 - 5 hours depending on the size and complexity of the operation. We start by meeting the senior team, then conduct a shop floor process review to see how things are measured and managed, followed by feedback to agree the priorities, business case and an appropriate work programme.

If you agree, we will then send you a proposal outlining the scope of work and costs involved.

For SME businesses Innovate UK REACH grant funding is available.
