Sheffield manufacturers are being urged to go for growth in 2013.

The call comes from the Manufacturing Advisory Service, which says the conditions are right for companies to expand.

Martin Coats, area director for MAS, which is funded by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, said: “Recent economic data suggests an upturn in the sector and, with exchange rates still favouring English exporters, all the conditions are there for our manufacturers to expand.”

MAS provides advice and guidance to companies, free manufacturing reviews, workshops on key issues and funding for projects that shape strategy, create new products, reduce waste and strengthen supply chains.
