The North Norfolk Manufacturing Group (NNMG) has been setup by New Anglia Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering (NAAME) in partnership with North Norfolk District Council.

The aim of the Group, which meets quarterly, is to create a powerful voice for the needs of manufacturing and engineering businesses in the district. The direction of the Group is dictated by the businesses. Relevant issues that affect the industry locally and nationally is also discussed. Outcomes from each meeting will inform the NAAME board thus enabling a voice to be heard and to lobby for what businesses need.

The Group also gives businesses the opportunity to make connections and grow relationships with relevant local businesses. By being involved with the NNMG, it will help businesses identify collaborations and build supply chains, learn from one another and embed best practice. We have already seen a number of collaborative partnerships develop between several of the businesses that have attended.

Previous Meetings

The First meeting of the North Norfolk Manufacturing Group was hosted by Raptor Aerospace at Scottow Enterprise Park on the 17th July.

The meeting, which was attended by roughly 25 people, focused on identifying what the regional challenges are, as well as successes that should be celebrated.

Attendees were given an overview of the work that Raptor has been undertaking, and of the projects that their Work Experience students have been undertaking.

Raptor have been identified as one of the Norfolk and Suffolk Future 50, and have already experienced rapid growth in the past year, requiring them to upsize their business premises.

The next North Norfolk Manufacturing Group meeting will be held on the 15th October at Paston College, North Walsham
