What does best of British manufacturing mean to you? Does it mean an advanced, aerodynamic, perfectly-designed, sleek car? Or does it represent something else?

TM is reporting from The Best of British Manufacturing Showcase at The Manufacturer’s Smart Factory Expo held in the Liverpool Exhibition Centre’s atrium, which showcases world-beating products from across the UK manufacturing landscape.

The display features innovative modes of manufacture, environmentally-sustainable production, products that redefine categories and the customer relationship, and export successes.

Best of British Manufacturing Showcase:

BAC’s Mono

Liverpool-based Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) showcased their BAC Mono car. Mono uses the very latest racing technology to create the ultimate sporting drive.

Mono is unique in that every car is shaped around the person behind the wheel, the new owner. TM previously interviewed Rainer Kuehlwein, chief manufacturing officer, about how Mono came to be.

A-SAFE: Effective safety solutions

This Liverpool-based manufacturer was even nominated in three categories of The Manufacturer MX Awards; Export, Supply Chain Excellence and Innovation & Design. Read the full shortlist here.

The showcase proves why British products are a class above and trusted universally. Brand Britain is considered highly, reported to be the fourth most valuable global brand by Brand Finance’s annual report.

It’s true. International consumers lap up the exceptional variety and execution of Britain’s manufacturing sector, as seen here in the Smart Factory Expo’s atrium.
