UK industry needs to be ‘bold and brave’ urges manufacturing boss


T


he time has come for UK manufacturing to be ‘bold and brave’ in the way it targets international opportunities according to the boss of a strategic


manufacturing outsourcing specialist. PP Control & Automation’s Tony Hague made the rallying call after GDP figures


revealed that growth in the economy had stalled and manufacturing output was falling. The CEO is urging more companies to invest in automation and to proactively


target export contracts after his own business announced a £3m order haul and exciting plans for further growth both domestically and in North America. It is an approach that the Government is keen for other manufacturers to


replicate as it looks to reinforce the UK’s reputation as an industrial powerhouse. “We have definitely noticed an increase in confidence since the General Election


result and it appears that investment has been switched on in a lot of sectors, which is very pleasing,” explained Tony Hague. “From our base here in the UK, we support 25 of the world’s largest machinery


builders in food processing and packaging, printing, machine tool, energy, transport and infrastructure, medical and high technology sectors. “Everything we do has to create added value to our clients through innovative


design, proactive supply chain management and competitive and agile manufacturing.” He continued: “We are targeting emerging markets in the UK, such as


electrification, as well as new opportunities in different geographies. In particular the North American markets, where we are well placed with 20+ years knowledge of legislation and associated UL standards. There are also the connections we have in place now through our investment partners Ardenton Capital. “Despite the figures out this week, I believe it is exciting times for industry, but


we have to work collectively and collaboratively to grow GDP and wealth. PP Control & Automation
