The aim of the ESSG is 'to support Chamber [of Commerce] members and the sustainability of engineering and manufacturing businesses on the Isle of Man by providing the voice of industry into Government and associated bodies.' This event continues to encourage enthusiasm and inspire ingenuity among young adults during secondary education. It's a fantastic opportunity to see the talent coming through the Island's schools and to nurture the budding engineers for a future in the industry!
