We can help you develop the supply chain for your sector, technology or programme, growing capacity and capability.

Our proven Fit For model of supplier development allows industry support organisations, programme partnerships and OEMs to engage with potential suppliers to help them meet the specific requirements of their sector.

We launched our Fit For Nuclear (F4N) programme in 2011 to help UK manufacturing companies get ready to bid for work in the nuclear supply chain. F4N lets companies measure their operations against the standards required to supply the nuclear industry and take the necessary steps to close any gaps.

We have since worked with partners in other sectors to adapt the model to the specific requirements of other growing low-carbon sectors. We operate Fit For Offshore Renewables with the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult, and led the Fit For Hydrogen + CCUS pilot with the Zero Carbon Humber Partnership.

We can help you develop a tailored supply chain development programme for your sector and industrial requirements. We offer a robust methodology combining a common business excellence assessment with sector-specific modules, user-friendly tools, and a comprehensive database of UK manufacturers.

We give you a strategic approach to supply chain engagement and development. Our programmes can be delivered nationally or regionally to meet your requirements.


A Fit For supply chain development programme can help you:

  • Identify and engage with potential suppliers.
  • Understand and support the UK manufacturing supply chain’s capabilities and capacity.
  • Give suppliers a deeper understanding of your technology and requirements.
  • Maximise UK content for your programme.
