As a Google-recognised news provider, themanufacturer.com is a trusted source for manufacturing news and insight covering the UK sector, as well as important sector-related happenings from around the world.

On both the website and print publication, you can find in-depth interviews with leading figures from business and government as well as thought -leading blogs and commentary from our experienced team of journalists and contributors.
