Essex Business Podcast: Manufacturing – Can Essex lead the UK turnaround?

by Kim Aaronricks

The latest episode of the Essex Business Podcast has now been released, featuring practical tips and specialist advice from sought-after experts and professional advisers across the county, to help companies thrive post-lockdown.

The UK – and particularly Essex – is no longer renowned as a world-leading manufacturing hotspot, but could that be about to change? In episode 15 of the Essex Business Podcast, three leading Essex business people offer their opinions on the recent supply-chain issues, the benefits of bringing manufacturing back to the UK and the county, and the support available to manufacturing companies of all sizes.

Andy Mair, Managing Director of Challenger Solutions discusses the issues and challenges the company has faced; John McCallion, Business Development Manager at the MTC talks about the support and initiatives available and Dave Atkinson, Head of Manufacturing and Regional Director for East England at Lloyds Bank explains what the Banking sector does to help develop the sector.
