Manufacturing Advisory Service are a Made in Yorkshire Friend Member

Latest News


Welcome to our dedicated Manufacturing and Engineering help desk and signposting service.

The Manufacturing Advisory Service provides signposting support for industry, and builds on the work of the now defunct government agency of the same name.

MAS provides helpdesk services for UK manufacturers looking for more information on process improvement, R&D grants and patents, access to finance and marketing.

The relaunch of MAS followed a wide-ranging consultation with manufacturers in 2017, pinpointing the support that fast-growing manufacturers were most in need of in order to scale-up their success.

This resulted in the development of a ‘Manifesto for British Manufacturing’ which was delivered to Prime Minister Theresa May and Greg Clark, Secretary of State for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy. One of the key outcomes of the Manifesto was the need for manufacturers to get involved in helping resurrect MAS.

If you are an ambitious manufacturer or engineering firm looking to improve productivity, develop capabilities, enter new markets or become leaders in your field - we can help.


Submit your enquiry today through our online helpdesk and we will connect you to an expert advisor within 24 hours.
