Current campaigns

We campaign locally, nationally and in Europe to keep manufacturers’ views firmly in the spotlight.

Policymakers trust our advice and welcome our involvement in their decision-making processes. We work with them to create strategies that are in the best interests of manufacturing businesses — encouraging growth and boosting their ability to make a positive contribution to the UK’s economy.

  • Industrial Strategy

    UK government must adopt a long-term industrial strategy focused on measures to boost exports and business investment.

  • Manufacturing and Europe

    We work with the EU to boost the manufacturing sector, sustain economic growth in the UK and look after the needs of UK manufacturing companies in Europe.

  • People and Skills

    We’re campaigning for a skills system that will provide and maintain a stream of skilled, qualified workers for the UK manufacturing industry.

  • Climate, energy and environment

    We’re campaigning for an environmental policy that will allow UK manufacturers to grow, compete, and promote the development of cleaner technologies

  • Why ‘Make it Britain’

    We are backing British industry. We will Make it Britain

  • Women in Manufacturing

    The average manufacturing company is made up of 85% men and 15% women; we're working to change that.

  • Devolution

    Devolving power, responsibility and money to local areas in England and away from central government can help to achieve stronger local growth.

  • The 4th industrial revolution

    Manufacturing is undergoing a transformation to the 4th industrial revolution.
