Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce have teamed up with NSCG to bring you the annual Staffordshire Manufacturers conference. Designed to celebrate local manufacturing and engineering companies, as well as making the sector aware of what support is available to support growth and success, this conference is set to be unmissable.
