Manufacturers in the mobility, access and independent living sector could be in with the chance to secure nationwide coverage and a valuable investment by participating in a new primetime TV series.

Kalel Productions, the award-winning producers behind the brand-new business investment series, are on the lookout for British manufacturers to take part.

The series, which has been commissioned for a major UK broadcaster, will see a forward-thinking industry leader invest their money into several SMEs and provide their commercial and industry expertise to help each company to grow.

Each one-hour episode will focus on one business, documenting the journey as the investor and the owners/employees work together to increase revenue and profit margins.

“Britain has a rich heritage of manufacturing and a global reputation for producing high-quality products. Whilst its contribution to the UK economy has seen a decline in modern times, manufacturing still accounts for around 2.7 million jobs,” said BAFTA award-winning Executive Producer Mark Saben, who is overseeing the series.

“Undoubtedly these are unprecedented times for British business, having to contend with Covid-19, along with the uncertainties and potential opportunities presented by Brexit. So within our series, we’re keen to shine a light on British manufacturing and the challenges it currently faces.”

According to Kalel Productions, it has been inundated with applications from SMEs across the UK, however, the company says it is still seeking unique manufacturing companies that would welcome a fresh perspective on their business, in addition to a cash injection.

With many manufacturers in the industry providing important solutions that help change the lives of their users, the television series could present a unique and unprecedented opportunity for savvy business leaders to get their brand in front of millions of viewers.

“It’s an amazing opportunity for an established manufacturer, alongside companies from other sectors, to gain investment and expertise, whilst featuring in a primetime series for a major TV channel with the aim of helping businesses to thrive,” added Saben.

To be eligible, companies should have a minimum annual turnover of £500,000 and a minimum of eight employees.

Kalel Productions, led by CEO and TV Executive Nick Parnes, have a successful background in producing factual television series for major broadcasters, including the BBC, Sky and Channel 4, with formats such as ‘Make Me A Millionaire Inventor’ and ‘Rich Kids Go Skint’.

The programme-makers are encouraging manufacturers to contact them as soon as possible, with filming due to commence within the next month.
