Tony Hague, MAN Chairman responds to the EU Referendum Result

Jun 24, 2016

“This isn’t the time for knee-jerk reactions and we need to assess how the new political and trading landscape is going to develop.

“There will undoubtedly be levels of uncertainty and, as manufacturers, we have had to deal with this a lot in the last nine months and will continue to be positive in our approach to winning new work with our partners both in the EU and across the rest of the world.

“MAN is testament to what can be achieved when we work together in collaboration and I think that needs to be the overriding sentiment as we tackle the immediate ‘uncertainty’ and prepare to explore the potential long-term opportunity.”

Tony Hague, Chairman of the Manufacturing Assembly Network
