Making it in Lancashire


A selection of Diamond Ambassadors visited BCW Engineering, in Burnley, for the Manufacturing Network ‘Making it in Lancashire’

With over 80 attendees, the event allowed BCW to showcase the 50,000 square foot expansion housing their fully automated robotic cells. The design for manufacture team (DEM) are responsible for the design, build, install and programming of the automated engineering solutions.


The use of poka-yoke methodologies across all processes ensures a fully conforming product. These advancements in digital capabilities are revolutionising the manufacturing processes reaping the benefit of more efficient production.


In 2017 the Chamber launched a new network for Manufacturing businesses entitled ‘Making it in Lancashire’, designed to provide Lancashire manufacturers with access to information, opportunities and best practice insights as well as providing a forum to meet with your peers

These highly successful breakfast meetings are hosted by local manufacturers and usually include a factory or showroom tour, which have proven to be really popular.


The network is designed to provide Lancashire manufacturers with access to information, opportunities and best practice insights as well as providing a forum to meet with your peers. Unlike many networks, Making it in Lancashire is a closed group and focuses on the needs of manufacturing businesses only.


Visitors were later given a site tour of the precision engineering plant which manufactures parts for the aerospace and automotive industries.
