What our clients say

Working with MAS has revolutionised the way the whole business is run. The culture we’ve introduced has transformed the way we work and has played a huge part in our strategic development. The expertise provided, including the implementation of a new dedicated production line for volume manufacturing, along with the introduction of 5S was invaluable.

Rachel Jarvis

Managing Director at Exhausts UK

Through the MAS programme Pera Consulting supported Exhausts UK to increase turnover by 15% within one year and create three new jobs.

We couldn’t have got our product to market so quickly without the support of MAS and UKTI, who both acted as great sounding boards and a constant source of support. Thanks to their assistance we had effective prototypes ready for two recent exhibitions and tooling is now in place that we can start immediate production.

Jake Horwell

With support from Pera Consulting NiteSite were able to get their innovation ready for full scale manufacturing – turnover is set to double in the next 12 months, creating five new jobs along the way. The business was also winner of the “Most successful International Partnership” at the UKTI Passport to Export Awards.
