Event turns to LEGO to tackle serious business of engineering and manufacturing

A serious engineering and manufacturing event today (Monday June 29) – using top child’s toy LEGO to build better business relationships – will also benefit from the expert advice of the D2N2 Growth Hub team.

The Business Peak District Manufacturing showcase is a free event featuring a wide range of manufacturing and engineering activity in the Peak District area. The event aims to support manufacturing and engineering businesses, helping them to reach a wider customer base. It will run from 4pm to 7.30pm today (Monday June 29) at Hope Construction Materials in Hope, Derbyshire (S33 6RP).

Unusually, the Manufacturing Advisory Service event will include an hour long LEGO workshop. It will aim to offer a fun way for delegates to find out more about lean manufacturing, the system of reducing the amount of waste (time, energy and materials) involved in making products.
