Since the Made Smarter programme began, we’ve supported over 2500 manufacturers like you in the North West, to adopt digital tools, develop a digital strategy and resolve skills gaps.

To celebrate the companies and businesses who have worked with Made Smarter NW we have created an award scheme.

Every company that is transforming itself through grant funding, leadership, or skills support from Made Smarter receives a certificate to celebrate its achievement.


Bronze-level certificates are awarded to every company that begins its transformation with Made Smarter.


Silver-level certificates are awarded to those clients who in addition to their transformation work, complete a case study highlighting their digital transformation and the benefits the Made Smarter programme brings.


Gold-level certificates are awarded to those businesses who actively advocate the Made Smarter programme on an ongoing basis after completing it themselves.

As a government programme, we have funding to help more manufacturers until 2025. If you know a business within the North West region that could benefit, please share our details with them and we’d be happy to help.
