Supporting Backing Britain

We are now exhibiting live at the Backing Britain 2020 expo and we’re excited to be part of this landmark digital event.

It’s been good to see many delegates chatting with Louise our freight forwarding manager on the stand and we’d like to thank you for supporting us and our fellow Made in the Midlands members.

The expo is live and open until Friday 28th August so there is still time to come and see us and support Midlands manufacturing.

We are manning the stand each day between 10am and 4pm. As a visitor you can also take part in Q&A sessions from industry specialists and you’ll receive a MiM event pack in the post.

We’re proud to be supporting Made in the Midlands and the region during the global crisis. The industry’s response to the pandemic has been phenomenal, from the manufacture of PPE to vital charity support. For our industry it’s incredible this exhibition has been organised and staged online in such a short timeframe so we can all remain safe and communicate in a familiar way.

Supporting Manufacturing Heroes

We are delighted to appear in the Backing Britain Expo Guide alongside our other Made in the Midlands members, a time-capsule marking 2020 and how the industry responded. More than 100 pages of inspirational stories from members of the Made in group. All delegates get one in their event pack so make sure you come along to get yours.
