Calderdale & Kirklees Manufacturing Alliance is a membership group of manufacturing businesses centred on a key manufacturing cluster of small and medium sized manufacturing firms in and around West Yorkshire.
Our members tend to be specialists in their field, constantly punching above their weight as an integral part of successfully functioning strategic supply chains in the UK and global economysuch as aerospace, automotive, power, rail and much more. Innovation and capability are common factors to our diverse group of members.
We are an active group of local manufacturers who meet together to share best practice, experience and knowledge, bring together the local supply chain and encourage collaborative working. With a steering group drawn from our rich pool of successful local manufacturing business leaders, actively supported by national and local business support organisations we focus on what is current and relevant on behalf of our members.
“CKMA is a fantastic organisation working to support businesses in the Calderdale and Kirklees region. What sets it apart is that the assistance is relevant and tangible.”
Simon Simpson, Batorer Precision Engineers
Our member-led organisation exists to promote continuous business improvement in manufacturing through initiatives which attract and engage with talent, support effective skills training, drive productivity and encourage resilient local supply chains to underpin the region’s economy and engineering reputation in a global marketplace.
