UK leading manufacturing specialists SJG have rejoined Made in the Midlands to connect with Midlands based business leaders and utilise the Made Futures platform. The decision to join Made in Group came after the company’s struggles with recruitment. The team hopes to raise the profile of the company through the group’s community of manufacturers.
Based in Alcester, SJG are specialist foam converters, rubber extruders and gasket manufacturers. Established for over 50 years, the team are experts in their capabilities and are a market leading manufacturer. Over the years they have been responding to the growing global demand for components which make industries safer and drive forward innovation. Robert James, Director at SJG, said:
“We have great relationships with existing customers and we have joined the Made in group to network with other businesses who may benefit from our advice and services. Being part of The Made in Group is a good opportunity to get the SJG name out there and share knowledge with like minded business leaders.”
The company has recently increased their capacity and capability with a 5 axis water jet machine. The new equipment allows them to take on more complex projects and increase their output.
With an array of capabilities under one roof and the increase in workload, the leading manufacturer is looking to recruit new staff. Robert and the team are looking forward to utilising the Made Futures platform, a jobs board created by the Made in Group for job seekers who are looking for a role in manufacturing. Robert added:
“Made in Group is a unique organisation with a different approach to providing value for members. The platform is beneficial for manufacturing businesses to raise their profile and open new opportunities. We would like to do this to attract apprentices and skilled staff.”
