The Launch Event

First launch of The Manufacturer Top 100 Report

Britain’s most inspirational individuals in manufacturing joined TV presenter and engineer Kate Bellingham at the launch of The Manufacturer Top 100 Report in Birmingham on November 26 as part of TM’s Week of Excellence.

Guests were served British sparkling wine and canapés at the Snow Hill offices of KPMG.

The report, the first of its kind, aims to dispel the myths surrounding manufacturing and create a platform to champion and publically identify dynamic leaders and innovators in the sector.

Shortlisted individuals were nominated by you, our readers, the wider industrial community and the public, for their contributions in changing the face of industry; finding new markets; making marked investment in people, processes and customers; as well as those young, bright sparks that are making an impact disproportionate to their years.

Each individual featured in the report was offered the opportunity to work with The Manufacturer in a number of capacities including joining the editorial board, getting involved in STEM, and speaking at conferences to continue to raise the profile and alter popular perspectives of manufacturing.

The Manufacturer’s Top 100 Report is sponsored by Lloyds Bank, founded in 1765 by a Birmingham button maker and an iron dealer, a bank which has its roots firmly planted in manufacturing. Lloyds have contributed an introduction and a thought leadership article for the report.
