Manufacturing plays a  major role in Scotland's economy, accounting for almost 200,000 jobs, more than half of our international exports, and half of our R&D spending.

Scottish manufacturing has long been renowned for its innovation, and remaining flexible enough to innovate is more important than ever at this time.

From dealing with the impact of Covid-19, to the drive to reduce costs in the face of international competition, and also need to meet regulatory, environmental and legislative requirements, we can help you ensure that your business can achieve its goals and contribute to a world-class manufacturing economy.

We can add real value to your business and already advise a host of manufacturers on every aspect of their operation. Our team can help you overcome challenges and take advantage of opportunities..
