As the backbone of the UK’s economy, manufacturing – and, within that, engineering – is a key industry

Combined with its various offshoots, this industry alone employs almost 3 million people and is a substantial aspect of UK exports, business research, and development.

Uncertainty surrounding the economy and, therefore, the manufacturing industry, involves supply chain disruption, technological changes, and an increase in competition. This has increased the need for efficiency, a strategy for reducing costs, and the knowledge of how to gain a competitive advantage in the industry as a whole – and these areas are where PKF Smith Cooper are uniquely positioned to help.
