Listen to what The Manufacturer one of the leading publications for the industry in the UK has to say: ‘Manufacturing contributes £6.7 trillion to the global economy. Contrary to widespread perceptions, UK manufacturing is strong with the UK currently the world's ninth largest industrial nation. Manufacturing makes up 10 per cent of GVA and 45 per cent of UK exports, and directly employs 2.7 million people.’
