At some point almost every manufacturing business faces the same question about its product range: ‘do we make it, buy it off-the-shelf or find a subcontract supplier?’ Whichever path your business selects, and it could, of course, be a mix of all three options, there is now a free-to-use website that will provide comprehensive end-to-end information, covering the most up-to-date products and services to support virtually any manufacturing scenario.
The Reshoring UK website (www.reshoringuk.co.uk) represents a unique collaboration of leading associations which has been developed with the goal of connecting manufacturers with potential suppliers, capable of providing any technical support, specialist products and niche services. As the UK’s engineering marketplace, Reshoring UK puts a wealth of information at your fingertips, to support informed business decisions.
Potential customers can select a category relevant to their needs – with subcategories to help focus the search, allowing them to choose from industry sectors and even by association membership, to search for their product or service requirement.
A ‘free text’ search-box allows quick identification of bespoke products and services, without the deluge of information you would receive using an internet browser. And, with ongoing plans to continue expanding the content and capability of the website, visitors to Reshoring UK will be assured of finding the latest technical content and current company information.
Rail Forum Midlands is delighted to be supporting this initiative. Although in its early days, ReshoringUK has significant potential to raise the profile of UK manufacturing expertise, not just to UK based companies but internationally as well.
