North Norfolk has several key sectors and, alongside our partners, can offer information advice and support for businesses with strengths in tourism, manufacturing and renewable energy sectors.


The North Norfolk Manufacturing Group (NNMG) has been set up by New Anglia Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering (NAAME) in partnership with North Norfolk District Council.

The group aims to create a powerful voice for the needs of manufacturing and engineering businesses in the district. Outcomes will inform the NAAME board, thus enabling a voice to be heard and to lobby for what businesses need.

The group is also a networking opportunity for businesses to identify collaborations, build supply chains, learn from one another, and embed best practices.
