Innovative SMEs will be critical to the success of the next industrial revolution which is transforming the manufacturing sector.

The call from industry leaders came as part of the official launch of LCR 4.0 in Liverpool last week.

The first of its kind in the country, LCR 4.0 is a new business support programme aimed at helping manufacturers in the Liverpool City Region to take advantage of the opportunities associated with the uptake of digital technologies in advanced manufacturing.

LCR 4.0 will allow businesses to access practical support and connect with other SMEs to help them unleash the transformational potential of the next industrial revolution, often referred to as Industry 4.0.

This latest evolution of the manufacturing sector offers opportunities for companies to increase productivity, respond more quickly to customers’ needs and grow sustainably. This is achieved through the adoption of technologies that enable increased connectivity between digital and physical assets.
