Made in the Midlands latest Breakfast Networking event took place in Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire to mark our second event of the year within the East Midlands region.

Boneham & Turner Ltd is a leading manufacturer and supplier of tooling components and precision engineered components in the UK. The company pride themselves on reacting to customer requirements, maintaining imperial and metric stocks of over 350,000 Jig and Drill Bushes and over 1.3million Dowel Pins as one of the UK’s largest stockist of the aforementioned products.

There were 60 second presentations from all of the attendees, who were provided with a selection of food and drinks. Boneham & Turner’s event was well-received on social media, as Minster Micro tweeted: “Great hospitality this morning @BonehamTurner @madeinthemids breakfast event, with a really interesting factory tour as well to finish!” FBC Manby Bowdler added: “Great morning networking @BonehamTurner . What a place! Thanks for the hospitality.”

The event saw 50 attendees register for Boneham & Turner’s event, which made it the most popular networking event Made in the Midlands has ever hosted in the region. Managing Director of Boneham & Turner, Charles Boneham stated: “If you can get 50 people through the door and you can do a presentation to 50 people and show 50 people around the shop floor then that is really great. Everybody seemed genuinely interested in what we did as a company, so I’m really pleased with that.”

Made in the Midlands Breakfast Networking events provide members with a fantastic opportunity to attend a local manufacturing company to discuss potential collaborations or future business ideas. Charles advised: “I’d recommend anybody doing it, if you have the opportunity to do it. We would gladly host one again. I think these events are really good at getting people through the doors. Because that’s what business is about, it’s about getting that exposure and getting your name out there into the marketplace and if the opportunity is there, then people should take that opportunity.”

Charles also provided a fantastic testimonial on why manufacturing or engineering companies should seize the opportunity to become a part of  the most successful privately run peer group for MD’s and CEO’s within the Midlands, as he said: “Its very important actually, a lot of people ask me: ‘How beneficial is Made in the Midlands?’ For me, it’s not all of our marketing, but it’s a good channel for marketing, it’s a trade organisation where you get to meet people and network with people. It is another channel to get your name out there and it’s definitely something that people should take advantage of.”
