About Us

The Manufacturer is the premier UK industry publication providing manufacturing news, articles and insights while promoting best practice in the manufacturing industry.

Covering all manufacturing sectors The Manufacturer, is an essential resource for every manufacturing boardroom and for senior management, delivering thought leadership articles, regulatory updates and best practice case studies on a monthly basis.

Far from simply a print magazine, The Manufacturer has a strong web presence and offers tailored weekly newsletters. An active events schedule also attracts an engaged readership community and supports understanding between manufacturers and those providing services to them. Events range from intimate dinners through to our annual flagship conference and awards scheme, The Manufacturer Director’s Conference and The Manufacturer of the Year Awards.

Strong partnerships with academic bodies, including Cranfield University and Cardiff Business School, and trade associations like EEF and MTA make The Manufacturer an important platform for national campaigns and political lobbying. In particular The Manufacturer is proud to support employer-led skills development through its partnership with sector skills council Semta.
