Last call to members to respond to Made In Survey

By Made in the Midlands News
schedule13th Aug 18

As the Made In Group looks to ramp up its lobbying we have been turning to our membership to help us ascertain the state of the manufacturing industry in Yorkshire and the Midlands.

Over the past few weeks we have been running our new Made In Survey, the results of which will form the basis of our new Made Report. This report will provide a detailed barometer of where the manufacturing industry in Yorkshire and the Midlands is and how prepared the membership is to weather the challenges ahead.

The survey asks members questions about the nature of their company, its ownership, the confidence it has in the ability of the UK manufacturing sector to continue its growth, how confident that firm is on turnover, what investment decisions it is planning, whether it is planning to increase the size of its workforce, what growth and succession plans it has and more.

There is also a detailed section on export and import strategies, whether members are satisfied with government support for exports, how successful they have been accessing government or private funding and where that investment needs to be spent.

The conclusion drawn from the collated responses will be distributed to all politicians in Westminster in the hope it can serve as a roadmap to a successful new era beyond Brexit.

All the members responding to the survey will be acknowledged in the Made Report, which is set to be published to coincide with the launch of our new Made in London platform on October 17.

Lord Mike Whitby, chairman of Made in the Midlands, said: “Members of Made In are a vitally important catalyst within the industrial sector, and their growth and prosperity will be vital for our nation to successfully meet the challenges of the future.

“We want to illustrate to Westminster that the Midlands and Yorkshire manufacturing sector is the true engine room of the UK economy and can generate the wealth which will fortify British industry as it navigates the inevitable headwinds generated by Brexit.

“In order to make the voice of manufacturing heard in the highest quarter then it is important that the industry speaks with an authoritative voice.”
