About Made in Greater Manchester

Made in Greater Manchester is a collaborative project between the local authority archive services in the Greater Manchester Archives and Local Studies Partnership (GMALSP), funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

You can read about the project on this blog and in the end-of-project report Made in Greater Manchester: A Celebration of the Region’s Business Archives. You can find out more about the city region’s business archive collections in the Greater Manchester Business Records: Research Guide.

Made in Greater Manchester brings Greater Manchester’s business archive collections alive by engaging volunteers and new users in creating a set of collection catalogues and new digital resources that share information about business history in the area.

Each of the ten archive services within the partnership selected one important collection of business records to be processed as part of the MIGM project. The collections range from the meticulous engineering plans of Walker Brothers Ltd., a major heavy engineering business in Wigan, to a captivating collection of oral history interviews from the Tameside borough.
