Lloyds Bank teams up with GTMA

Date: 06-05-2015

Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking has teamed up with manufacturing trade association, Gauge and Tool Makers Association (GTMA). GTMA is a UK-based trade association representing leading companies in precision engineering, rapid product development, toolmaking, tooling technologies, metrology and other critical manufacturing related products and services. The organisation helps its members engage with ‘Original Equipment Manufacturer’s’ (OEMs) in their respective supply chains.

Through the agreement, Lloyds Bank’s accredited manufacturing team is offering support and guidance to the members of GTMA to help its members maximise growth amid the continuing economic recovery, whilst providing guidance to business owners at its upcoming Manufacturing event.

The announcement comes ahead of the GTMA event in April, which will be hosted by machine tools manufacturer Yamazaki Mazak UK, in Worcester, showcasing the latest industry trends and developments in engineering technologies. Lloyds Bank will be at the event where our sector specialists will be on hand to offer guidance to business owners on what help is available to maximise the potential of their business.

Our commitment to UK businesses

David Atkinson, Head of Manufacturing at Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking said: “Supporting manufacturing businesses is a pivotal part of our commitment to driving the economy, so we’re pleased to announce this working relationship with the GTMA.

“This is the latest in a line of initiatives designed to ensure that we provide unrivalled knowledge to manufacturers, as well as access to funding to help realise their growth ambitions, and we look forward to providing guidance to firms at the upcoming Manufacturing UK event.”

Geoff Highley, President of the GTMA, said: “Our membership represents some of the most-advanced and cutting-edge engineering and tooling practices in the world. They are highly ambitious, buoyed by a recovering economy and eager to expand. We look forward to welcoming Dave Atkinson and his team to future GTMA events. The expertise of Lloyds Bank’s manufacturing division will help empower our members, giving them the confidence to explore new markets, invest in their plant and machinery and capitalise on growth opportunities.”
