UK Manufacturing of the Future

Over recent years UK manufacturing has enjoyed a period of great renaissance, responding to a growing domestic demand for speed to market, convenience and flexibility, as well as increasing interest from international consumers looking for high quality UK-made product.

This vibrant, diverse and innovative sector produces high-quality products used in hospitals, cars, international catwalks and the high street, it creates jobs and opportunity and is a significant driver of growth to the UK economy.

The fragility of international supply chains have been highlighted by recent global events and the rise of the sustainability agenda. Additionally the UK continues to have some of the highest overheads for manufacturing compared to our nearest competitors.

UKFT’s mission is to empower a world leading, future-fit, UK manufacturing sector to embrace this period of opportunity. We work in partnership with industry to address challenges, drive change and to push investment in the future.
