Productivity Enhancement Programme
The Welsh Government Productivity Enhancement Programme was launched in Torfaen at the end of 2020 after wide spread success in other areas.
This programme of support, aimed at manufacturers, includes funding for capital expenditure in new technologies and helps businesses move to the next level.
The programme aims to increase efficiency, develop new products and explore new markets within the business. Every participant in the scheme will be assigned a Welsh Government Relationship Manager and Innovation Specialist to help review productivity enhancement and support them through the business friendly application process.
Expert manufacturing advice is provided through a funded productivity consultancy that has helped SME businesses with advice surrounding factory layout, automation and digital, technical manufacturing challenges and quality marking requirements.
