Epicor shows commitment to future manufacturing talent with awards sponsorship

Posted on 27 Aug 2014 by The Manufacturer

Epicor comes on board as sponsor for Young Manufacturer of the Year Award at The Manufacturer of the Year Awards.

The UK manufacturing is going through a period of profound and irreversible change. The impact of national and global economic, technological and political trends is transforming the way we make things, along with where and how we make them. There is no doubt that the next ten years holds a series of game-changing shifts for the UK manufacturing industry.

epicor150x80To survive in the evolving environment of the next ten years, the UK manufacturing sector needs to become responsive and innovative, ready to create and produce the products and services that will sustain a future generation. To be successful on this journey the manufacturing industry needs to attract and retain the brightest minds and sharpest new talent. The Young Manufacturer of the Year represents the future. It tells young people that manufacturing offers a wonderful and varied career. From the cocoon of a long outdated oil-and-overalls image, a revitalised, clean and innovative sector is emerging. Over the next decade manufacturing could become one of the most exciting, innovative and opportunity-rich sectors for young people to forge a career in.

It is for these reasons that Epicor has come on board as the official sponsor for this specific award.

Epicor provides enterprise resource planning (ERP) software solutions to maximise efficiencies within the four walls of each manufacturing plant, while providing innovative technology to inspire efficiency across the globally extended enterprise. Our comprehensive manufacturing software portfolio enables manufacturers to plan, schedule, execute, and monitor the entire business—from raw materials to final product, pick, pack, and ship. With a full range of functionality, Epicor provides manufacturers with flexibility and agility, and inspires competitive edge.
