Make UK to discuss freight and trade

Make UK, The Manufacturers’ Organisation will present a webinar to members of BHETA (The British Home Enhancement Trade Association) on Wednesday January 26 at 11 am. Make UK’s chief executive Stephen Phipson will talk about the latest state of trade, the ongoing impact of Brexit (including labour, UKCA/CE marking), along with the thorny issue of freight costs and supply chain challenges.

Aimed at business leaders and organisations that are linked to manufacturing, the webinar will also cover wider headwinds for the manufacturing sector and solutions to the challenges faced by UK manufacturing. Following the 20 to 30 minute presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to pose questions directly to Stephen.

Make UK represents around 20,000 companies of all sizes, from start-ups to multinationals, across engineering, manufacturing, technology and the wider industrial sector, including over 5,000 businesses who are members of the Engineering Employers’ Federation (EEF).  Designed to help British manufacturers compete, innovate and grow, it provides business support and training, and it champions manufacturing industry in the UK and the EU.

“Despite the many positive opportunities for suppliers in the home enhancement sector, there are currently numerous practical challenges for manufacturers in general,” comments BHETA’s marketing manager, Steve Richardson. “It will be especially useful and illuminating to listen to views and advice on these from the wider community of British manufacturing.”
