Manufacturing firms will be given more help to create thousands of jobs with a service supported by the Government, accountancy firm Grant Thornton and training firm Pera.

A new nationally operated Manufacturing Advisory Service will focus on helping small- and medium-sized manufacturers. Business minister Mark Prisk said the service will be delivered by the Manufacturing Advisory Consortium; it will help create £1.5bn in economic growth and 23,000 new jobs, as well as helping to safeguard another 50,000 jobs.
