The UK’s annual exhibition for manufacturers and supply chain professionals, Advanced Engineering, has launched a new report gauging uncertainty in the engineering sector. The report, entitled ‘Voice of Industry’, brings together the experiences of leading manufacturers on topics ranging from Brexit and the skills shortage to the rise of electric vehicles and product innovation.
“The UK is well known as a source of excellence in engineering and innovation. We are the home for leading global businesses such as Rolls Royce and BAE Systems as well as many much smaller, highly creative engineering companies. [But] the current economic climate is uncertain, but I have confidence the resilience of our engineering sector will weather the changing environment and may well become stronger as a result,” said Mike Wilson, Managing Director of KUKA UK and Ireland as well as Chairman of the British Automation and Robot Association (BARA).
This year’s Advanced Engineering show, which takes place at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham between 30–31 October, 2019, will also feature an Innovation Zone. The Innovation Zone will give UK start-ups the chance to exhibit for free, showcasing the latest innovations to the market.
