Top 100, role models and dispelling manufacturing myths

Posted on 25 Apr 2017 by Fred Tongue

Editorial Director Nick Peters sits down with Dr Steven Barr, Managing Director of Hennik Edge to discuss The Manufacturer Top 100 project, manufacturing.

This week, they talk about the inspiring individuals who make UK manufacturing so successful, despite the fact that the prevailing view in the country is that manufacturing is a sector in decline.

Now entering its fourth year, The Manufacturer Top 100 project publicly recognises the most dynamic leaders and innovators in manufacturing, helping to dispel the myths surrounding industry.

Judged by a panel of industry experts and figureheads, the project provides the platform to promote the role models necessary to encourage young people into this vibrant, exciting and rewarding sector.

Those named within this year’s report will be revealed at a glamorous evening of celebration on 15 November in Liverpool, where shortlisted cross-sector candidates will arrive from all corners of the country to raise a glass.

The evening event will bring together the crème de la crème of British manufacturing from business leaders and academia, to government and the supporting community, to mark the outstanding achievements of the shortlisted candidates.

This year, The Manufacturer Top 100 is sponsored by Salesforce.
