£700K of funded support to drive Sylatech’s transformational business growth

Sylatech, an engineering business based in Kirkbymoorside, has achieved success by being formally accepted as a beneficiary on to the leading aerospace transformation programme, Sharing in Growth.

The scheme will provide Sylatech with an intense and comprehensive programme of training, coaching and development, tailored to its specific needs, and drive Sylatech towards ‘world class’ in the operation and performance of the business.

The Sylatech team will work alongside Sharing in Growth’s highly experienced coaches, as they share their industry expertise across a number of disciplines, including leadership, strategy, culture, lean manufacturing and business development. The programme will provide £700K of funded support to Sylatech and will be delivered over a 27-month period.

Charlie Breese, Sylatech’s Managing Director commented “The team at Sylatech are absolutely delighted to become a beneficiary of the Sharing in Growth programme and become part of its wider business community. In very difficult circumstances, we have undertaken an intensive diagnostic exercise to demonstrate our suitability for the programme, which has given us a clear insight into the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead”. Charlie continued “the aerospace sector has been significantly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and unfortunately, we have experienced some pain, as this sector forms a large part of our customer base. With the support and commitment of Sharing in Growth’s expertise, we are very confident that we will quickly re-grow our business and create something of which we can all be very proud, for the years ahead.
