British Manufacturing; the future?

Posted in Employers on Jun 10, 2012 by Rejuvenate Productions

Over the past five years we have seen an increase in promoting British farm produce, Fair Trade Goods and Eco-friendly items. Now British technology and engineering businesses are increasingly looking to return their manufacturing to the UK.

Traditionally manufacturing has been outsourced to China and the Far East but as the cost of import duty, freight and delays incurred through shipping times British manufacturing is becoming more appealing and competitive.

Many companies are citing better quality, lower overheads and quicker turn-around times as the main reasons for their return to British manufacturing.

In addition the rising popularity of all things British amongst consumers is driving a renewed interest from business owners to capitalise on this new market trend.
