Maintaining Great British Quality in Modern Manufacturing


W


ith increasing numbers of British manufacturers transferring their operations overseas, Michael Leaf, Managing Director of interiors specialist Pendock, discusses the importance of a UK manufacturing strategy.


Michael Leaf joined Pendock in October and is passionate in his support of UK manufacturing. Having spent more than 20 years in the Bathroom and Kitchen Industry, he fully understands the challenges facing the Interiors market, he comments:


Comment by Michael Leaf, Managing Director, Pendock


“Understandably, many contractors are now spending less on stock and are finding themselves under increasing pressure to maintain sales. A UK-based approach such as that practised successfully by Pendock, allows direct control of the manufacturing and supply of products nationwide, whilst avoiding costly quality issues and extensive lead times from the Far East. “Suppliers need to be extremely responsive and able to react quickly to demand with top quality, highly


competitive products. A UK manufacturing strategy enables you to balance supply and demand much more effectively and promotes production flexibilty, local warehousing and logistics systems that can be more easily managed and are not subject to the negative effects of overseas currency fluctuations or increases in shipping costs.


“When combined with in-house technical support and a committed management team, UK manufacturing presents a sustainable work process which will ultimately benefit your company, your clients, and the environment.”
