Reuters feature | Made in Britain: Broken supply lines drive manufacturing back home

CEO, Tony Hague contributes to a positive conversation with Reuters on reshoring.

BIRMINGHAM, England, July 28 – In central England, birthplace of the industrial revolution, factories are buzzing anew, hammering out parts for cars, planes and medical machines that used to be made in Asia.

After two years of global supply-chain disruption, and with dark clouds on the horizon, manufacturers around Britain’s second city of Birmingham say they are inundated with orders, helped by new and old domestic clients bringing some production back home.

“If you invest in your people, invest in training, invest in automation, invest in robotics, do all the right things, basically as a UK manufacturer, you can be competitive.”
