Sector bouncing back at manufacturing & supply chain conference in Glasgow

Made in Britain CEO, John Pearce delivered one of the Main Stage speeches at this year’s Scotland's Manufacturing and Supply Chain Conference on Wednesday 25th October at the SEC, Glasgow.
Attendance was better than ever, with footfall looking (and sounding) like there is a real buzz around the sector and with the numerous experts on hand both as speakers and consultants shaping the future of responsible growth in British manufacturing - clearly indicating a heightened passion in Scotland. 
Ahead of his speech, John spent some time with exhibiting member of MiB, European Springs & Pressings who were upbeat on the overall picture of business optimism and were clearly having a successful event. According to the sales team, last year had been a great year, this year will be better than last and, importantly, next year’s order book was looking stronger than ever. If the long queue to get into the event were anything to go by, then the Scottish manufacturing sector has a lot to look forward to in the coming years. 
It’s not always easy to find heartfelt statements of business optimism, but a Made in Britain member exhibiting at the Glasgow venue of this event that ‘tours’ from Belfast to Milton Keynes via Dublin every year, are reaping the benefits of being a proud, British manufacturer, making high precision springs, pressings and wire forms.

John's speech, Sustainability, Resilience and Trust: The Value of Localised Supply Chains examined localisation and sustainability within context of 2000 manufacturing centres, all available on the same database via and highlighted some of the many members in Scotland – some within walking distance of the SEC venue in central Glasgow.

“I would love to speak more often in Scotland. There is a genuine sense of growth and optimism about manufacturing from the entire community supporting this important learning event as it tours from one major centre to another. Supporting the green energy transition, investing in leaner, cleaner manufacturing and embracing a circular economy of materials all appear to be mainstream thinking with the delegates and exhibitors I spoke to.”
