A new business event is offering a helping hand to Lincolnshire’s manufacturing firms.

Lincolnshire County Council has joined forces with the Greater Lincolnshire LEP, Natwest Bank and SHD Composites to launch the new Manufacturing Conference Lincolnshire.

The event will give businesses the opportunity to make valuable contacts for breaking into supply chains, and explain the wealth of support available to help them grow.

There will also be a chance to see the Bloodhound Super Sonic Car, which SHD Composites has provided materials for. Seen as the pinnacle of engineering, the car aims to break the land speed record next year, before targeting 1000mph in 2016.

Councillor Colin Davie, executive member for economic development, said: “Lincolnshire has a proud manufacturing tradition, and we’re working hard with our partners to see that continue.

“This event will help local firms find new business opportunities and enable them to access the wide range of support that can help them go from strength-to-strength.

“And we’re honoured to welcome the Bloodhound Super Sonic Car, which again highlights the role the county plays in such world-class projects.”

The event takes place on Friday, October 10, between 8.30am and 1.30pm at SHD Composites’ premises at Sleaford Enterprise Park (NG34 7BY).

Places are free, but must be booked by contacting manufacturingconf@lincolnshire.gov.uk or 01522 550590.
