SME Support

Enabling UK SMEs to grow and prosper

Key to the Automotive Industry

SMEs play a crucial role in the UK Automotive Industry. They are key to the supply chain and lead some of the most exciting innovation in the sector. We believe it is crucial to provide support for SMEs and we offer a number of funding activities, international events and opportunities to grow, in a sector where traditionally they may not have been able to.
