West Suffolk
manufacturing group

The West Suffolk Manufacturing Group was established in January 2019 by a consortium of representatives from both the private and public sectors to champion and support the thriving Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering sector within West Suffolk (including Bury St Edmunds, Haverhill, Newmarket, Mildenhall and Brandon).

Supported by West Suffolk Council, The New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, Hethel Innovation and West Suffolk College, we are a growing group, keen to meet like-minded ambitious manufacturing & engineering companies who are interested in sharing best practice and collaborating to assist the growth of members and develop the sector across West Suffolk.
