Greening the Automotive Supply Chain

1 min read

Automotive companies in the West Midlands looking to 'green their supply chain' are being urged to take part in a special event, on 15 September 2010, where specialists from Jaguar Land Rover and Brockhouse Group will talk in detail about what they look for in a 'green supplier' and how they have tapped into support to improve their own operations.

The workshop, which is being organised by the 'Manufacturing Advisory Service – West Midlands', will look to provide 25 firms with an unrivalled insight into improving their competitiveness through embracing best practice resource and process efficiency and by reducing their energy usage. Held at the Confederation of British Metalforming's head-office in West Bromwich, there will also be an introduction to low carbon assistance available through MAS-WM, including a dedicated hotline (0845 245 0845), specialist advisers, manufacturing reviews and strategic improvement projects. MAS-WM Auto is a dedicated offer for automotive suppliers and is part of the organisation's umbrella of support it offers to more than 1,900 manufacturers every year. The service is designed to provide the latest information and data for the sector, while also promoting the West Midlands supply chain to domestic and international customers. Individual company advice and mentoring will also be available, including a referral service to other support programmes. The 'Greening Supply Chain' event is just one of a number of networking seminars planned for the next six months, all of which are free of charge for interested companies.
