UK - A West Midlands-based manufacturing group is urging the industry not to talk itself into a downturn amidst the current Brexit uncertainty and has instead issued an economic rallying cry, having recently recorded an £8m sales boost.

Manufacturing Assembly Network (MAN) Chairman Rowan Crozier made a rallying cry after all its nine member firms reported strong order books as they start to make plans for 2019.

Eight sub-contract manufacturers and an engineering design agency together have added new sales worth £8m to its combined turnover while having invested over £5m in new technology, capital equipment and the recruitment of 60 new staff.

“Most of us just want a level playing field that we can trade on and an end to the uncertainty that Brexit is creating. Let us focus on what we do best and compete on quality, price and competitiveness,” says Crozier, who is also CEO of metal pressings specialist Brandauer.

MAN comprises a group of eight strong sub-contract manufacturers and an engineering design agency who work together to win orders and share best practice and resource.

The collective, which records over £75m sales and has more than 800 employees, offer a diverse engineering discipline, including automation and control systems, casting, fabrication, forging, plastic injection moulding, PCB development, precision machining and high volume pressings.

Its members includes Alucast, Barkley Plastics, Brandauer, C-MAC SMT, Grove Design, KimberMills, Mec Com, Muller Holdings and PP Control & Automation.

Rowan added that regardless of which way the Brexit goes, it should kick-start the UK to buy more local products to drive the industry forward and support more domestic jobs.
