Sigma Components signs with SIG for £2m

Sigma Components has signed a contract with Sharing in Growth UK Limited (SIG) for a business support programme valued at over £2m over five years. 

Under the scheme Sigma will benefit from a programme of business improvement initiatives to accelerate growth and maintain global competitiveness.

Over 3,000 UK companies employ over 230,000 people serving the world’s aerospace industry, with that figure expected to double over the next ten years. 

The Sharing in Growth Programme is designed to help the UK continue to be a leading contributor to that market and make UK companies the most competitive in the world.

Over £1m of Regional Growth Funding will be matched by Sigma’s own expenses as the programme unfolds to improve skills, develop people, increase efficiency, reduce lead-times and remove working capital.
