    "It’s an exciting time for ambitious businesses that want to drive long-term growth and gain a larger market share, and we’re ready to work with manufacturers that want to take this next step."

  • Malcolm Harald,

    Digital Manufacturing, Knowledge Transfer Network

    "KTN supports this FOBM initiative that helps companies embrace the 4th industrial revolution. Companies we speak with will appreciate the student Fast Track as it is a great idea to get young engineers working with companies."

  • Clare Marett,

    Head of Manufacturing for Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS)

    "BEIS welcomes and supports the Future of British Manufacturing Initiative. It’s an opportunity for manufacturers to embrace the benefits of digital technology and to shape a UK approach to the 4th Industrial Revolution within a modern UK industrial strategy.""

  • Dick Elsy,

    CEO, High Value Manufacturing

    "I am delighted that HMV Catapult hosts the events and works with Autodesk to reach out to SMEs with practical and realistic insights into the exciting Future of British Manufacturing."

  • Henry Anson,

    Managing Director, The Manufacturer

    "The 4th Industrial Revolution is upon us and the landscape for manufacturers, particularly SME’s, is arguably more complex and difficult to navigate than ever before in industrial history. The opportunities are vast, as are the threats."

  • Asif Moghal

    Manufacturing Industry Manager, Autodesk 

    "British manufacturing has an opportunity to place itself at the centre of this 4th industrial revolution. [The Future of British Manufacturing initiative] is a hands on approach to enabling British design and manufacturing companies to respond to the challenges of things like Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things."

  • Luke Webster,

    Publishing Director, MA Business

    "The UK has been recognised for its engineering excellence for centuries, but the game is changing. Design cycles are being compressed, innovation heightened and products need to find their way to market faster than ever before. This is what drives and inspires the content of Eureka! – which is why we recognise the value of supporting the FOBMI."

  • Dave Atikinson,

    UK Head of Manufacturing, SME & MM Commercial Banking

    "Around three-quarters of industry have told us that they are aware of Industry 4.0 but are not sure what it means for them. The FOBMI can help businesses start to think more constructively about the impact and its opportunities."

  • Chris Coopey,

    Head of the Manufacturing Group, MHA

    "Manufacturing should be at the vanguard of the UK’s future economic strategy. We need to monetise the innovation we are so good at by encouraging high and sustainable growth through investments in skills, infrastructure and automation. MHA stands ready to support businesses wanting to make this journey into the 4th Industrial Revolution."

"It’s an exciting time for ambitious businesses that want to drive long-term growth and gain a larger market share, and we’re ready to work with manufacturers that want to take this next step."
