NPL SME Manufacturer Measurement Network

On 18th October NPL North of England launched it’s SME Manufacturer Measurement Network at an evening event in the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre in Huddersfield.

The network has been created to help smaller businesses to obtain support from NPL to help their businesses to improve manufacturing capability, reduce scrap and become more profitable. There are two membership levels, with Tier 1 membership being free and offering a range of support services.

NPL North of England specialises in dimensional metrology in support of the enormous number of manufacturing businesses in the region. In particular, the region is dominated by SME manufacturers, many of which who are facing challenging times due to a number of factors including the demise of the oil and gas industry and up until recently, the problem of cheap imports. NPL are trying to help these businesses to utilise good metrology to improve their processes – reduce waste, produce better quality parts more consistently, and consequently become more competitive.
