We had a fantastic day at the Made in Britain madeingb.org last week. Hosted by Ideal Manufacturing idealmanufacturing.com , it was a great opportunity to meet other British manufacturers, both large and small, who make a diverse range of products. Where else could you encounter shaving products, washing detergent, coffee machines, copper tubing and steel furniture producers all on the same day! The day was highlighted with the fascinating story of "chick", the delightful Ideal Manufacturing mascot, a very interesting tour of their factory and some delicious cakes too! Thank you for hosting such a brilliant day.
Dura have been proudly manufacturing here in the UK for 20 years, and we want the world to know about it. Made in Britain is a fantastic non-profit making organisation whose mission is to champion British Manufacturers to both consumers and businesses. With a consistently growing membership which lists over 1300 members and teamed with an increasingly discerning British buying audience, it is little wonder that the marque that Made in Britain members display on products and literature is being recognised more and sought out by consumers.
The Made in Britain workshops not only deliver an insight into other businesses, but the keynote speakers representing Banks, The Department of International Trade, Crown Commercial Service and Marketing Strategists ensure that the day is as informative as it is fun. It was particularly great to hear that there are clear government guidelines for the support of British SME manufacture with a target goal of 30% of spend by 2020. We were also interested to hear a great many of us agree that buying British means buying quality with integrity. With uncertain times ahead in the wake of Brexit, maybe we should all be looking within our own shores more than ever for British made perfection.
