Many manufacturing businesses would like the opportunity to expand their reach into multiple sectors as a way of protecting them against market failure, provide a wider range of customers for current products / capabilities, and to increase sales.
Often, there is fear about entering a new market, such as different standards that have to be adhered to, lack of market knowledge / specialisation, or the ability to compete with current suppliers in that market.
Help is generally available to enter new markets and to take advantage of the opportunities that this presents, and it’s often not as difficult as originally perceived.
New opportunities are emerging in sectors such as civil nuclear and rail; suppliers will be needed to support new development programmes in these sectors, this is the right time to diversify.
Join NPL Manufacturer Measurement Network and the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce at this event to hear from experts in different market sectors, businesses that can provide help, and case studies from businesses that have expanded into new markets. Network with like-minded businesses and share your experiences.
