Kent & Medway Manufacturing Focus Group (KMFG) is a networking and business group for Manufacturing & Engineering organisations across Kent and Medway offering a unique access to peers and colleagues, sector specific information, advice and support.
The group meets every last Wednesday of the month, either in person or online, see our website for details of future events https://kentemployerskillsplan.org
KMFG is open to all organisations operating or directly supporting the Manufacturing and Engineering sector in Kent & Medway, whether they are chamber members or not.
Join us for our November KMFG and a visit to the award winning Curious Brewery, Ashford.
The Curious Brewery was established in 2011 and they opened their state-of-the-art brewing facility in Ashford in 2019. Their expert team are committed to making premium beers and ciders, crafted from curiosity, each with a uniquely rewarding winemaker’s twist.
Join us to network in their modern & contemporary surroundings, sample some of their food and take a tour of their brewing facilities.
KMFG will enable the Manufacturing & Engineering sector to influence, in a more concerted way, the different agendas that are key to business growth and success.
