About Made in the midlands
Made in the Midlands, part of the Made in Group, exists to champion and promote UK Manufacturing. The community, along with Made in Yorkshire and Made in London, originated in 2009 as a simple pledge for Managing Directors of manufacturing firms to open a channel of communication within local firms to source and supply locally where possible, upskill and reskill workforces, and promote good news from manufacturing businesses.
The group is now the largest private manufacturing network in the region, representing more than £120bn of UK manufacturing, which consists of 500 firms with a turnover of £2m+ a year. 85% of the group are owner-managed SMEs focused on collaboration and networking.
