A NEW forum for manufacturing and engineering businesses is being launched in Chesterfield and North Derbyshire.
The organisation, which is the idea of Destination Chesterfield, will be led by businesses from across the area, acting as a voice for the sector, and will be chaired by James Brand, managing director at United Cast Bar Ltd.
The first event takes place on Thursday, January 10, at 8.30am at United Cast Bar Ltd and is open to any manufacturing or engineering business.
The first forum will include an update on the latest phase of regional growth funding, which is available to Chesterfield businesses. Expressions of interest are now being accepted from businesses with new investment proposals that are seeking to be part of the programme.
