EEF, The Manufacturers’ Organisation takes a historic step forward and announces its new name and identity – Make UK at our National Manufacturing Conference. Our country and this industrial sector face an unparalleled set of challenges and opportunities in the years ahead: Brexit, digitalisation, automation, artificial intelligence and the emergence of new markets.
As British manufacturing transforms, modernises and adapts to this new environment it was time for us to also adopt a modern name designed to reflect the world class innovation undertaken by our member companies across the whole of the country. Our sector is changing, so are we.
Britain makes amazing things, in vast quantities and of the very best quality. UK manufacturing is back on the global map, due to the brilliance of our companies which have made such a success of supply chains and the modern marvel of just-in-time logistics. And, after talking extensively over many months to our members, we know that Make UK reflects this new modern manufacturing world.
We are delighted to be announcing this change as hundreds of companies will join us in London to celebrate the dynamism and ingenuity that has helped propel Britain back into the global top ten manufacturing nations.
