Early adoption of digital technology in manufacturing is key to business survival and crucial to increase production, reduce waste, optimise production lines and create new product lines. As 2021 begins, businesses need to prioritise resources and investments and really understand which changes to implement to become resilient and get future ready.

KTN’s 4Manufacturing® initiative is a revolutionary new approach developed in partnership with the industry to help manufacturers to modernise. It provides strategies for businesses to realise a more productive, prosperous future enabled by the integration of technologies and systems using digital data within both the business and the supply chain.

We have developed a survey to give companies the opportunity to receive support from this programme (limited places available) and to tell us all about your plans to innovate in 2021. You will need to complete some information that will give us an idea about what your company has implemented in the past 12 months, and what you plan to introduce in the year ahead.

You can find more information about the support we will provide here.

We will be in touch with the outcome of the allocation of places by 8th January 2021.

If you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to get in touch using
