Future of British Manufacturing at AMRC


As we enter a new industrial era, British manufacturing has an opportunity to place itself at the centre of this disruption and once again become a driving force in this 4th industrial revolution. But the traditional approaches to competitive advantage are no longer enough, particularly for SME’s. That’s why we’re delighted to work with Autodesk and The Manufacturer on the Future of British Manufacturing initiative. It’s a hands on approach to enabling British Design and Manufacturing companies to respond to the challenges of things like Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things. Our objective is to enable British Manufacturers to Design, Make and Sell Great British Products everywhere through a truly agile product innovation platform that increases productivity, innovation and delivers what we like to think of as repetitive advantage.

On 15 June, the Future of British Manufacturing roadshow visits the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) in Rotherham. Attending the event is the next step to better understand the trends that are shaping the design and manufacturing industry, learn how other companies are responding to them. You’ll also have an opportunity to meet and network with other senior managers & directors of British design & manufacturing companies.
