Member Connect @ CAV Aerospace in partnership with Lombard


Access to High Value Engineering Markets

Looking for access to high value engineering markets? Then attend this Member Connect event.

Join us at multi-award winning company CAV Aerospace.

This Member Connect event focuses on access to high value engineering markets and the sources of funding and financial services available to you to aid your businesses growth. The event, in partnership with CAV Aerospace, Ford Aerospace and Lombard, will be held at CAV Aerospace and includes a factory tour and an exclusive insight into their success.

Accessing new markets is about identifying the right opportunities, matching current manufacturing capabilities against those openings, and identifying where changes need to be implemented in order to compete successfully. It’s also about quality assurance and consistently performing to the highest standards demanded within tough supply chain networks. The demands are great but the rewards are worthwhile; find out how others have achieved success.

Representatives from Lombard will show how you can access funding straight from your keyboard; give you the know-how on funding services available and provide financial intelligence to help boost your business performance. You will also see how our hosts, CAV Aerospace, achieved growth in exports and safeguarded their business through investment in innovation and how they maintained their success during tough economic times.

This event includes a site tour.

Join us and discover what financial aid and free services are available to you.
