TALE – Transport and Logistical Efficiencies and the MGP – Manufacturing Growth Programme have joined forces to support business in Kent.

TALE helps by funding up to a £60,000 grant for software, tablets and devices, consultancy and new staff, all to help improve a company’s logistics function.

The MGP also offers grant funding and tailored business support including independent business reviews and action plans to maximise opportunities for growth.

The schemes are working together to maximise the support available to SME manufacturers, to grow and become more efficient with their use of data.

Dedicated staff are based in the area and ready to visit companies - Daren Booth, Manufacturing Growth Manager MGP and Fred Thomas, Business Support Facilitator TALE.

Any SME interested in accessing a grant can contact fred.thomas@haven-gateway.org

The Manufacturing Growth Programme is provided by Economic Growth Solutions, part of Oxford Innovation Solutions. TALE is managed by the Haven Gateway Partnership.  Both schemes are part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
