The fund aims to support those manufacturing businesses in the supply chain that have received an enquiry/order originated by an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) or a ‘Prime’, either directly from that OEM/Prime or from a Tier 1, Tier 2 etc company within that supply chain. In many cases the requirement will be to fund the tooling necessary to make component parts which will feature as part of a larger sub-assembly to be provided to the OEM/Prime. However this Funding Programme is not exclusive to the Automotive sector and consideration will be given to any funding request for tooling where there is an order for the part to be manufactured.
