Welcome to #MadeInSandwell Monday! Think Sandwell publishes a profile of a different Sandwell organisation almost every Monday, giving readers an engaging overview of what that organisation does and where its products or services are used.
#MadeInSandwell Monday is a celebration of the talent and diversity of businesses and organisations in our borough. You don’t need to actually ‘make’ things – we just want to know about all the success that’s made in Sandwell.
Each profile is shared through Twitter, so taking part is a great way to promote your business.
All we need you to do is complete our #MadeInSandwell Monday questionnaire [opens in a new tab] and email it back to us with a few high-quality images. We’ll take it from there!
