Key support services for Yorkshire and Humber’s small and medium-sized manufacturers will continue to be provided until at least the end of the year.

The Manufacturing Advisory Service was hit when soon to be axed regional development agency Yorkshire Forward withdrew funding in October.

Now, the Service, which has helped many local manufacturers to boost competitiveness and create jobs, has secured backing from the Department for Business Innovation and Skills, the European Regional Development Fund and Yorkshire Forward.
