Monthly Manufacturers Meetings
No solicitors, web designers, insurance salesman or accounts, just a safe place for manufacturers to meet with other manufacturers in the area, make new contacts and share innovative ideas.
Keeping it simple! No 60 second pitch and forcing people to make referrals! We are refreshingly different as you can see from our testimonials.
We have Guest Speakers every month providing valuable information to help our manufacturing members develop and grow their businesses, making sure we always have a little fun along the way.
All our manufacturing members share the ethos of giving something back to the community by supporting a local charity each month with a donation (£15 per meeting).
Tea & Coffee is always on tap at the meetings and we love our monthly Pie and Peas. Great stodge for our manufacturing members.
If this sounds like something you would like to be part of please contact us for further details.
“Gary is a firm believer in the 6 degrees of separation link to others and this ethos
has been proven many times within the Manufacturers Network Group in Bolton. Our government believes that it is manufacturing that will lead the way out of recession and, by having networks like this where knowledge can be shared, and contacts made, in an informal, relaxed, atmosphere (and with good pie & peas) can only help. It was Gary's foresight and perseverance that made it happen and long may it continue to thrive.” Val Pilkington, Director, PMT Industries Ltd
“Gary founded the Manufacturers Group in Bolton to assist businesses in the local area with all aspects of running their day to day business as well as creating networking opportunities and creating a hub for local charities to promote themselves. We have had some great speakers and there is always a wealth of information to take away with you such as how and where to apply for various grants and pots of money through to schemes for apprenticeships and University Graduates. I would well recommend this group to any of you manufacturers out there who are looking to grow. Oh yes, the pie and peas always goes down well too !!” Tony Bladen, Director, Britannia Sheet Metal Ltd
"Great, not formal, meeting with like minded people." David Moore, Director, Headen & Quarmby Ltd
"Fantastic to be in such a relaxed environment." Daniel Dwyer, Marketing, Indespension Ltd
"Great cross section of companies with strong focus on manufacturing with representation showing a passion for sharing ideas and openess to continuous improvement." Mark Sutherberry, Manufacturing Advisory Service North West
“Gary is a selfless, kind and very switched on professional and in short always acts to help in sacrificing ones own interest for the greater good. I am very proud to not only have known Gary for a short period of time but proud to call him my friend. I know that Gary has no hidden agenda when helping others and I am looking forward to working with Gary for many years to come. I have no hesitation in giving Gary a reccomendation and if you are contemplating on doing any business with Gary, I encourage you to take full advantage of his skills and expertise as soon as you can. Thank you for everything you have done and are doing for Be Strong Gary” Darren Armstrong, Director, Be Strong (Charity)
Making a Local Difference
