With advanced manufacturing, low carbon initiatives and innovation all high on the agenda, we assist businesses in the region to continually improve their competitiveness.”Andrew Mitchell MP said, “These are difficult times for the West Midlands manufacturing industry, and I am extremely concerned for my constituents who are experiencing difficulties – largely because of Labour’s economic mismanagement.
