Feb 22, 2018

A unique industrial collective is casting aside the shadows of Brexit by recording its best ever year, with a £10m increase in sales paving the way for 125 new jobs.

The Manufacturing Assembly Network (MAN), which comprises eight sub-contract manufacturers and an engineering design agency, has taken full advantage of the positive exchange rate for Sterling and a desire to tap into British innovation to win contracts across the automotive, aerospace, electronics, renewables and medical sectors.

All nine firms have experienced growth over the last twelve months and have benefitted from sharing best practice, purchasing power and working together to target new clusters.
