UK Manufacturing Review 2016/17

06 February 2017

UK Manufacturing ReviewThe UK Manufacturing Review, now in its second year, is a 250-page book that covers the key events, progress and challenges across the manufacturing sector in 2016, with forecasts for 2017.  

The book is divided into four main sections: industry sectors (including automotive, food and drink and aerospace) themes (including Brexit, skills and recruitment) technologies (including servitisation and addictive manufacturing) and country reports.  

Published by niche manufacturing and tech publisher Stirling Media, the book charts key events over the past 12 months and predicts future direction through case studies and commentary from more than 270 organisations, ranging from innovative SMEs and multi-national manufacturing groups to R&D centres and trade associations.

BDO are proud to sponsor the review which has reached more than 5000 industry professionals. Other sponsors include High Value Manufacturing Catapult, Infor, Sandvik, BAE Systems, Renishaw and FBC Manby Bowdler.

Tom Lawton, Head, BDO Manufacturing at BDO said:

The manufacturing sector plays a critical role in the UK economy and is a priority sector for BDO. This is why we have sponsored the ‘UK Manufacturing Review 2016-2017’. This book is a fantastic reflection of all the fascinating things going on in the manufacturing sector and is a great way of showcasing exactly what we’ve got to offer. A must read for anyone working or interested in the manufacturing sector.

Will Stirling, founder of Stirling Media said:

A lot of work has gone into the Review this year, where we’ve focused on sectors and technologies more than business subjects and peer countries. Technology has always dictated manufacturing but now we are in a digital age, smart technology is quickly encroaching into factories and people should be aware of how other companies are using it – there has been a big spike in media interest of ‘Industry 4.0’ this year. Thanks to the sponsors and everyone who helped produce the Review.

BDO are distributing over 450 copies of the review to the manufacturing businesses across the UK. If you would like to receive a copy of the review, please complete the form below.
