100 local businesses sign up to Made in Lincolnshire project

The Made in Lincolnshire brochure is celebrating its 100th business, cementing its reputation as the go-to for manufacturing talent across the county.

Launching in May this year with 70 local businesses, the interactive brochure celebrates Greater Lincolnshire and Rutland’s diverse range of manufacturers and features businesses of all shapes, sizes and sectors. From crafting violins for celebrities to building parts for planes, the brochure showcases local businesses that are producing some of the UK’s most innovative products.

However, the brochure doesn’t just highlight the homegrown manufacturing talent right on our doorstep, Made in Lincolnshire also helps local manufacturers to connect with one another. By inter-trading and working together, local SMEs can boost both their business and the Greater Lincolnshire and Rutland economy, creating new jobs and opportunities for all.

Darren Joint, Managing Director of Viking Signs Ltd and Chair of the Greater Lincolnshire LEP Manufacturing Board, said: “When we created the Made in Lincolnshire brochure, our goal was to put the spotlight on the many fantastic local manufacturing businesses, but it was also to help them connect with one another and boost our local economy.

“So, to see that more than 100 businesses have decided to join and put themselves out there to work with other talented Greater Lincolnshire and Rutland SMEs is amazing.”

The manufacturing sector in Greater Lincolnshire and Rutland brings roughly £1.8 billion a year to the local economy and employs 39,000 workers – roughly 16% of all jobs. And the sector is only continuing to grow in the county, despite a decline in the number of people working in manufacturing across the UK as a whole.

Darren continued: “There are still plenty of opportunities for local businesses to connect with one another and do great things – to find a like-minded business you’d like to work with, all you have to do is download the Made in Lincolnshire brochure from the Business Lincolnshire website. There’s also still time to join and be featured yourself, so if you’d like to be included, don’t hesitate to get in touch!”
