East Midlands Manufacturing Network (EMMN)

The East Midlands is a region with a strong manufacturing heritage and with the potential to have an equally strong future.

What better way to secure the future success of manufacturing in our region than by bringing together key knowledge and skills to form a dedicated, supportive peer network? That is the role of the new East Midlands Manufacturing Network.

Why get involved

By signing up to East Midlands Manufacturing Network, you are joining a business-led support network for manufacturers, which will help you to:

  • share best practices and experience in a trusted peer environment;
  • focus on issues and challenges that are a priority for you and other manufacturing businesses;
  • better understand the financial support on offer for your manufacturing business;
  • tap into specialist consultancy and advice on regulation and compliance;
  • identify collaboration opportunities; and
  • gain peer support and education.

The project is part-funded by the UK Government through the UK Community Renewal Fund (UKCRF).* UKCRF funding is being delivered in areas considered by Government to be most in need. In the East Midlands, these are Bassetlaw, Derbyshire Dales, High Peak, Leicester City, Mansfield, Newark and Sherwood, and Nottingham City.
