CHESTERFIELD businesses joined forces at the first Chesterfield Manufacturing and Engineering Forum organised by Destination Chesterfield to develop their businesses.

The event was hosted and chaired by James Brand, Managing Director of United Cast Bar Ltd and member of the Destination Chesterfield Board. Attendees discussed the latest from their sector and how they can work to grow their businesses.

There was also an update on the Regional Growth Fund, which is available to Chesterfield businesses from both Sheffield City Region and D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnerships, to support businesses to grow and create new jobs.

James Brand said: “Since I have become involved with Destination Chesterfield we have been championing the importance of our sector to the town.

“Through this forum we wanted to bring together the businesses to discuss their industry but to also provide information that can support their growth. It was excellent that there was such a good turn out and discussion at the first event and I look forward to future forums.”

The next Chesterfield Manufacturing and Engineering Forum will take place in April.
