Introducing an exciting new Factory Tour experience…

With the new-look Manufacturing Management comes Experience Days, a best-practice learning experience brought to you by Manufacturing Management’s editorial team.

We have teamed up with Make UK, the manufacturers’ organisation, to offer an extended offering to our world-class Factory Tour programme. As well as a chance to see behind-the-scenes at some of the UK’s leading manufacturing sites, including Aston Martin, Fujifilm and Siemens, a representative from make UK will be on-hand to deliver a themed presentation to reinforce the message and learning experience of the day.
