Run by manufacturers for manufacturers

A name change and new governance to take our Alliance of local manufacturers into the future...

A group of passionate engineering and manufacturing companies with the goal of improving skills training in engineering for young people have been working hard ‘behind the scenes’ with the support of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority (WYCA) to introduce an ambitious new ’employer-led’ project to radically change how technical training is delivered in our region.  Details are still being worked up and in order to reflect our leading role in this development we are now a Company Limited by Guarantee and will in future be known as WYMA.  We will be gradually changing our branding.

We look forward to exciting times ahead when in addition to our ever-popular factory visits and member meetings we will be engaging with local manufacturers to make a real ‘step-change’ in the delivery of training working with delivery partners.
