RS demonstrates commitment to innovation in British manufacturing

RS Components has joined a community that works to champion and celebrate British manufacturing and manufacturers, by becoming a member of national organisation Make UK.

The membership will enable RS to further its involvement in driving innovation in the UK, to help it fulfil its potential as one of the world’s biggest manufacturing nations.

Emma Botfield (pictured), RS Components’ managing director for the UK and Ireland, explained: “In order for the UK to drive competitive advantage by developing the right skills, and embracing and employing the right technology, there needs to be a collective effort and support platform that enables manufacturers to connect and share best practices. This is the mission of Make UK, and it’s one we at RS wholeheartedly support and why we decided to become a member.

“Our membership will enable us to contribute to this community, using our unique position as a global service and solutions supplier along with our expansive and diverse knowledge in this area. Equally, being part of this community allows us to learn and constantly evolve whilst keeping our finger on the pulse for the good of both the sector and our customers.”

Make UK provides regional and national meetings, events and advisory boards, working at every level to ensure UK manufacturing performs and grows, now and in the future. It has

thousands of members who use the platform to connect, share information, troubleshoot and campaign – all with a common goal of creating the best environment for UK manufacturing businesses to flourish, in a challenging and rapidly evolving landscape.

Charlotte Horobin, regional director for the Midlands and East of England at Make UK, said: “We’re delighted to have a global organisation such as RS as a member of Make UK. With their track record in driving innovation and championing important issues such as investment in developing skills, we’re sure they can add real value to our agenda – as well as using their membership to help drive innovation and knowledge in their business.”
