Phil Hanson presents keynote at Hethel Engineering Open Day
Phil Hanson was invited to give the keynote address at the Hethel Engineering Open Day on Wednesday 29 March.
The presentation focused on key aspects of the recent report written by the Institute for Manufacturing as part of a project co-funded by the DTI and the CBI to investigate the definition of High Value Manufacturing. This report presents an initial framework for industry and policy makers to analyse and maximize the potential of future UK manufacturing.
Phil Hanson said "What the IfM study shows is that manufacturing today is a complex business sector in which production capability is only one part and that high value companies come in every shape and size. The IfM is helping manufacturing companies to better understand how they can create value in financial, strategic and social terms".
