After successfully completing the diagnostic phase of the SiG programme, we were delighted to have received confirmation that ELE Advanced Technologies has become a beneficiary and will now receive a significant investment.
Our Managing director, Manesh Pandya, commented on the news:
ELE, as a manufacturing company, has ambitious plans for growth, and is looking to increase turnover from £10m to £25m over the next 4 years. Inevitably and in order to realise this target it will also require an increase in in our current workforce as we introduce new customers, products and skills.
We also realise that in order to achieve this growth, it is essential that we are globally cost-competitive.
ELE is therefore delighted to learn that it will be a beneficiary of Sharing in Growth programme. SiG provides best practice expertise, applying a holistic approach to continuous improvement across the business.
SiG will now provide us with long term coaching, mentoring & training across all areas of the business, helping to achieve sustainable results and culture change within ELE.
What is the Sharing in Growth (SiG) scheme?
In April 2014, ELE was selected for the Sharing in Growth (SiG) programme.
Sharing in Growth UK Ltd was set up in 2012 specifically to deliver a £110M of intensive supplier development training over 4 years to 40 UK Aerospace suppliers. The selection process is rigorous and only the most robust and ambitious suppliers achieve a position on the programme.
