Support fpr SME manufacturers
Almost 950 SME manufacturers have secured support, including specialised advice and EUR 2.7M of funding, since the launch of Made Smarter 18 months ago.
This support includes expert, impartial technology advice, digital roadmapping workshops to help manufacturers take their first steps to transform their business, leadership development programme developed in partnership with Lancaster University, and funded digital technology internships.
104 of the businesses have now secured matched funding for 115 projects and are forecast to deliver an additional EUR 110M in gross value added (GVA) for the North West economy over the next three years.
These include Alphatek Hyperformance Coatings which provides metal spraying and thermal spray coatings from its plant in Stubbins.

The market demands modern, high-performance, flawless paints that possess specified properties. Where deviations from set points occur, the cause must be investigated and the error must be remedied. What "standard methods" don't disclose is why a particular coating either meets or fails to meet a requirement. Thus the author presents modern analytical techniques and their applications in the coatings industry that answer further complex questions. The information in this book can be used for performing failure analysis, production control and quality control, and also meet the requirements of modern high-level quality management. An excellent combination of theory and practice for formulators, paint engineers and applied technologists seeking a sound basic introduction to instrumental paint analysis and concrete answers to everyday problems.
