David Whiteley, Chair said ” We were impressed with the investment in new technology and commitment to the Leeds City Region that LBBC Technologies have made, they have been on the site for over 130 years, it is good to see the company’s future plans and development supporting apprenticeships, engagement with universities and their Knowledge Transfer Partnerships.”
The Leeds Manufacturing Forum provides a platform for supporting Leeds-based manufacturers of all sizes and from all sectors of industry to help them improve and grow. Leeds Manufacturing Forum is made up of representatives from manufacturing companies across the city. It was set up to help give manufacturers a collective voice and enable them to influence policy and decisions that affect the sector.
Leeds Manufacturing Forum is facilitated by the Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS) and Leeds City Council (LCC) to give local manufacturers a platform for sharing knowledge and debating issues relating to manufacturing.
