MAS is able to consider funding projects that look at virtually any aspect of business from products, processes and people to the supply chain and the markets operated in.
How MAS works with consultants
The MAS funding process is quick and simple, with only a two-page form to complete, and a typical grant application is signed off in under a week.
Put simply, this makes it more affordable for you to get projects moving and keep costs to a minimum… We want to ensure a maximum return on the bottom line for manufacturers. Your client, the manufacturer, is in control… they choose the consultant and they choose the project that will help grow their business. MAS will support it*.
When your manufacturing client contacts us
A MAS Advisor will:
- Contact your client for an initial discussion and if appropriate arrange to visit their manufacturing business
- Undertake a short business review of the manufacturer, during the visit, and talk through their identified improvement areas
- Support the manufacturer with easy to complete, grant application paperwork and the selection process of a consultant/trainer if required please note to deliver a MAS project the consultant of choice must be on the MAS DIRECTORY, they choose who to work with
- Identify the priorities with the manufacturer, quantifying and qualifying the anticipated outcomes and benefits
- Measure the benefits to your client's business when the project is completed
