Manufacturing is a key component of the Black Country economy and an important part of our region's heritage. Our Manufacturers' Club meets on a regular basis for peer-to-peer discussions on relevant topics.
Through this campaign, we aim to raise the awareness and profile of manufacturing issues in the Black Country on a national scale, lobbying to support the needs of the local business community.
As part of our 2021 West Midlands Mayoral Manifesto, we have a priority to support our manufacturing members and work towards tackling the issues and topics which matter to them.
Our three manifesto commitments are:
- Highlight policy decisions and issues affecting the automotive supply chain
- Raise awareness of Research & Development Tax Credits and how they can benefit our businesses
- Enhance communications between manufacturers and the wider business communities to drive efficiency and savings
