Did you know that Lochaber Chamber of Commerce Premium Member, West Highland College UHI (WHC) is about to open an amazing new resource for our business community?

The new Advancing Manufacturing Centre (AMC) will be centrally based in the Ocean Frontier building by the main WHC campus in Fort William, and will help businesses across the region develop new manufacturing techniques and benefit from expert help and advice at zero cost.

If your business needs access to equipment and technology that might be too expensive to source yourself, or you’d benefit from professional management input into research, development or design, then the AMC can help you.

All their services are offered at zero cost to your business and they can even bring portable equipment to you and provide face-to-face training at your premises.

The project will target support for SMEs and micro-businesses involved in manufacturing across different industry sectors, including Food and Drink, Construction, Aquaculture, Metals and Timber Products.

You can find out more about the range of services on offer by coming along to an informative webinar hosted by Lochaber Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday August 25 at noon.

No matter what you make, or are planning to start making, come along to find out about the free help on offer. Book your ticket for this free event on
