Welcome

Sustainable manufacturing

All of the videos and presentations from this year’s UK Manufacturing Summit. In addition to keynotes from EEF, Renshaw, BAE systems and government, a rather animated question time session was one of the highlights of the day.

On 18 April 2013 the IET hosted this year’s UK Manufacturing Summit at Savoy Place London. Titled “Investing in UK Manufacturing” acknowledged the current focus upon manufacturing and sought to move the debate forward by looking at all forms of investment and in particular what companies can do to help themselves.  With Government, Economic and Industry Keynotes, an hour and a half long Question Time panel and SME case studies; delegates were given a real breadth of content with the opportunity and time to explore a number of key areas with their own questions.

The Summit confirmed the range of investment, from skills to R & D, that various agencies are making available for manufacturing however the clarity and availability of those offerings still appears to be an issue. Above all the passion displayed during the debate and the drive shown by the SMEs speaking was infectious and an encouraging sign.

All of the videos and presentations from the day are available below and we would encourage you to make use of the day’s resource and then add your view either on the Manufacturing Network new window community page or via email.
