The Manufacturer is the premier industry publication providing manufacturing news, articles, events 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 digital and social presence and also offers two weekly Digital Briefing e-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 themed conferences, with the year culminating in our annual celebration of the industry: Digital Manufacturing Week – consisting of our flagship conference Manufacturing Leaders’ Summit, Smart Factory Expo and The Manufacturer MX Awards.
Strong partnerships with academic bodies, including Cranfield University and Cardiff Business School, and trade associations like Make UK (formerly 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.
