Hi everyone, I'm Stephen from Make UK (formerly called EEF). I cover the South region and so spend my time visiting manufacturing businesses across that patch to understand their problems and, where I can, assist them. Looking forward to sharing with you all.

Hi everyone! 

I'm Michael Brassea, I work in Marketing at a company called Tacton CPQ. I'm really into visualization, design automation and digital transformation of existing processes for manufacturers. I like to see how changing just a few things can reinvent and reinvigorate companies! 

I hope to learn more what's actually going on on the factory floors. What are the good and bad experiences manufactures are encountering in 2019? Where do we go as the decade turns? 📆

As for manufacturing in the UK... I am based in Chicago, but this is the best forum I've encountered and hope to find a good sense of community here!

Hi @michael.brassea

Welcome to the Community! We recently hosted our Digital Manufacturing Week In Liverpool which showcased some of the amazing new technologies revolutionising the manufacturing industry. Next year's Smart Factory Expo event is on 11-12 November at the Liverpool Exhibition Centre. More details will be posted on the Community in due course.

It would be great to get your perspective from the USA - in particular how new technologies are changing the manufacturing industry on the other side of the pond.

Best regards,

Daniel.

Graham Cooper

Hi 

I'm Graham. I'm approaching the twilight of a long career in manufacturing (42 years and counting) and would love to share my experiences and learnings to help others. I have deep knowledge and experience of the following areas amongst others :- Developing High Performance Work Teams and implementing TPM, H&S management, Sustainability and energy reduction (Agfa won Sustainable Manufacturing MX awards in 2007 and 2011), Lean Management Systems (totally integrating ISO 9001, 14001, 50001 and OHSAS 18001), building a lean continuous improvement culture, getting value from a sea of process data. 

I'm passionate about the sector and believe it is vital to engage young people to open their eyes to the fantastic careers in Manufacturing they could have. I'm particularly proud of instigating and leading the Leeds Manufacturing Festival for the last couple of years (see summary of 2019 LMF here) and of becoming a Top 100 Alumni in 2018.

Stephen Cloute

Hello all,

I'm Stephen, I am a quality technician from Hastings, I work with quality, health & safety and environmental ISO standards (9001, 19001, 45001 and 14001) in my company as well as development projects in foreign countries, general quality inspection, process improvement, risk and COSHH assessments, management system writing and currently I am working on my knowledge into electrical components (testing and installation as well as the inner workings) including BS EN standards. Although I have not been in this industry long I have picked up a lot from the time I have been working and will continue learning everything I can about manufacturing/engineering as it really interests me.

I hope that I can get a lot of insight from this community which will benefit me in my career, and I can help answer/discuss issues that I have knowledge on or give a different perspective on other topics.

Hi - I'm Jonny Williamson and I'm Editor of TheManufacturer.com. I've been with The Manufacturer for the past five years and writing about manufacturing, business and leadership for the past 10. 

My mission is to give manufacturing business owners and their decision-makers the insights and analysis they need to run their operations better. How? By speaking to manufacturers and engineers every day, promoting their successes, discussing where they see future opportunities and unpicking what keeps them up at night.

I'm hoping the discussions in this community will help me achieve that, alongside helping you all via the content and insights the team and I will share.
