Jan 22, 2020

An industrial collective is celebrating a major milestone in its history by appointing a new Chairman to lead it over the next twelve months.

The Manufacturing Assembly Network (MAN), a collaboration of eight West Midlands-based sub-contract manufacturers and an engineering design agency, has just secured a new order as a result of joint working, taking its combined efforts to over £75m of sales generated since it was formed.

A significant focus is now on increasing this number to £100m according to Adam Cunningham, CEO of Muller Holdings and the new Chairman of MAN, taking over from Brandauer’s Rowan Crozier earlier this year.
