Event to help east Cheshire businesses prepare for Brexit
EAST Cheshire manufacturers are invited to a free event to help them plan and prepare for Brexit.
The workshop will be held by Cheshire East Council’s arms-length Skills and Growth Company, in partnership with Manufacturing Growth Fund initiative.
It will offer an outline of what Brexit means for small and medium manufacturing firms, providing them with the tools and know-how to start preparing now.
Cllr George Hayes, chairman of the Skills and Growth Company, said: “While trade deals and timelines are to be negotiated, there are preparations that businesses need to start making now, to ensure they are best prepared.
Developing a plan to prepare for Brexit now, no matter what the outcome of negotiations, will ensure that you are able to service your customers and continue with business as usual.
“I urge all businesses – in particular, those manufacturing goods for export or who rely on imported components – to attend.”
The event will take place on Thursday, February 22, at Sandbach business Delta Balustrades, which makes and installs balustrades and handrail systems.
Speakers will provide an outline of the implications of Brexit for British manufacturers, advice on import and export processes, negotiating the best currency deals and opening up new markets.
