This week, Sheffield City Region is being represented at the Southern Manufacturing 2013, the UK’s largest regional manufacturing technology, electronics and subcontracting exhibition in Farnborough, North Hampshire.

On February 13th and 14th, Rachel Clark, Business Development Manager, and Rhoda Watson, Business Investment Manager, will be talking to manufacturing companies based in the South about the benefits of expanding into Sheffield City Region.

David Grey MBE, Sheffield City Region LEP Board member said:

“Sheffield City Region has a world class Enterprise Zone which has already attracted great companies like window manufacturer Ellbee and manufacturer of machined components, X:Cel Superturn.

“The Enterprise Zone offers 100% Enhanced Capital Allowances for plant and machinery. Together with the sophisticated supply chain, high skills, low wages and affordable housing, the region provides the right conditions for manufacturing companies to flourish.

“We are spreading that message to businesses based in the South.

“We invite companies to get in touch and arrange a meeting at Southern Manufacturing 2013 to find out how we can help them grow their business. ”

Regional companies showcasing their products at the event include Chesterfield based Ondrives and Scaglia INDEVA, Doncaster based SMTXTRA Ltd and Rotherham based Nikken.
