Make it in Great Britain – Industry Champions

Current perceptions of the UK manufacturing industry are out-of-date and do not fairly represent the lively, dynamic sector that has developed, critics say.

See below to see the full list of champions and click on their names to read their individual biographies and what they and their company’s are doing to improve the image of industry in Great Britain.
