Manufacturing Connect at Ricoh UK Products

Future Factories

This West Midlands Manufacturing Connect event is about sharing best practice and hearing Ricoh’s success story of investment in the latest robotics technology.

Our Manufacturing Connect events are hosted at manufacturers' facilities and include a factory tour, enabling best practice and information sharing with your peers.

4IR has the potential to create new and unimaginable opportunities for manufacturers who are innovative and agile. Whilst many large scale OEM manufacturers have implemented a range of 4IR programmes, many smaller and medium sized businesses are still struggling with the transition and wondering how they can apply its lessons to their own businesses.

Free to attend for EEF members, this West Midlands Manufacturing Connect event is about sharing best practice and hearing Ricoh’s success story of investment in the latest robotics technology.
