Made in the Midlands has this week announced a strategic partnership with Baker Tilly, leading chartered accountants and business advisers, to help and support its members with business solutions and financial advice.
It is the joint opinion of Made in the Midlands and Baker Tilly that manufacturing is growing, and with it comes a need for an industry expert to help companies further expand and innovate. It became clear that there was a significant opportunity for Made in the Midlands to link up with a strong brand name giving its members the platform to tap into government initiatives and an international network.
Made in the Midlands Chief Operations Officer Charles Addison said; ‘We’re delighted to welcome Baker Tilly on board. They will be able to advise our members, supporting them with things like financial forecasting, cash management and Tax and VAT planning. Their expertise will help to save time and money but most importantly relieve some of the stresses that financial forecasting can bring’.
‘There is a clear link between our offers that will add real value to our membership. Our selection process for all of our partners is a robust one and our members trust the decisions that we make. We are really proud to bring a blue chip brand into Made in the Midlands’.
Mark Evans, Partner at Baker Tilly’s Telford office added; ‘The Midlands is highly regarded for its engineering innovation and expertise. Made in the Midlands seeks to enhance this reputation by promoting the excellence in the region and helping local and larger businesses prosper by accessing new opportunities and providing forums for the sharing of ideas. Baker Tilly is pleased to support Midlands manufacturing by helping these businesses with their financial and strategic planning to allow them to concentrate on innovation and growth with the confidence that having a robust financial plan provides.’
Baker Tilly’s long standing relationship with the manufacturing and engineering sector gives front line visibility on the challenges industry faces and allows their team to offer pre-emptive and value enhancing business solutions.
