Manufacturing & Engineering

MHA has proven experience in advising manufacturers, engineers and technology companies. We maintain professional contacts with an array of bodies central to the success of the sector including manufacturing organisations such as MAS, UKTI and the Local Enterprise Partnerships as well as institutes, universities, banks and allied sector specialists. Our aim is always to help our clients to increase profitability through improving business processes, growth, diversification into new subsectors and international expansion.

The sector is now confronted with a number of  issues, which we at MHA take seriously. Each year we produce a national Manufacturing & Engineering report to lobby and influence at a national level, to help our clients and the sector in general to deal with issues such as the skills shortage, complex tax legislation and red tape in general.
