A new initiative designed to build UK industrial capability and increase reshoring has got off to a flying start after £625,000 of orders were placed in the first few weeks. UK Manufacturing Unite has been launched in response to the national effort to produce more critical components and essential equipment, and is the first step in the sector’s fightback against the damaging effects of COVID-19.
Created and run by manufacturers for manufacturers, the movement is urging more firms to collaborate, share practice and find practical solutions for developing domestic supply chains. Over 35 companies have already signed up to the online platform that will act as a central place for sourcing supply solutions or getting answers to the issues that businesses are facing.
