Factory of the Future – New Balance Athletic Shoes
This Member Connect event invites you to the ‘Factory for the Future’, taking place at the New Balance Flimby Factory. Factory for the Future is an event that intends to provide insight into the best business support available, to ensure a business thrives into the future.
Over the past 100 years New Balance has grown substantially, forging a reputation for innovation, performance and a commitment to domestic manufacturing. The event is targeted solely at manufacturing companies and aims to inform attendees of ways to overcome barriers to success, from a company who have been there and done it.
As an attendee you will find out more about a multitude of support organisations and what they offer to help businesses, along with a tour of the manufacturing premises of New Balance Athletic Shoes.
If you are looking for ways to improve your business but not sure where to start, or have heard about funding, grants and financial support but not had the time or resource to find out more, then come and spend a morning with EEF and partners to gain knowledge that could be the start of your business’ future.
Capacity limit: 30
Please note that we reserve the right decline attendance of those who may be viewed as being competitor organisations to the host site
