An insight into modern manufacturing

This report tells the story of UK manufacturing from the perspective of the businesses involved. It sets out a snapshot of the issues that matter to manufacturers. Some of the issues raised are unexpected, but the hope is that by highlighting them, this report will dispel some myths, reveal the diversity of UK manufacturing and help promote a greater understanding of this sector and how it contributes to the economy.

Report findings reveal that a large group of engineers in the UK nearing retirement age could constrain growth in the sector. The problem is exacerbated by a perception among young people that manufacturing is an unsecure, badly-paid career choice.

The report is a project of Engineering the Future, the alliance of the professional engineering institutions.
