The Manufacturing Industry

The Sector

As the first industrialised nation, manufacturing was once the backbone of the British economy. However, finance and service industries have since the 1960s increased their share of the economy, overtaking manufacturing in importance.

Despite these trends, manufacturing still accounts for 60% of UK exports, 15% of the national output of the UK economy and 12% of employment. As such it is critical to the wealth of the nation. Further, with the present economic turbulence attention has refocused on the importance of manufacturing, as evidenced by a call for more scientists and engineers.

Our Experience
