Ahead of this year’s show, Advanced Engineering has launched a new report gauging uncertainty in the engineering sector.
The report, entitled Voice of Industry, brings together the experiences of leading manufacturers on topics ranging from Brexit and the skills shortage, to the rise of electric vehicles and product innovation.
The Voice of Industry report delves into the unique challenges that businesses have faced in the last two years and explores the positive results they’ve had in overcoming uncertainty. It features Q&A-style interviews with senior figures in a variety of engineering businesses, including Renishaw, Atlas Copco, Kawasaki Robotics and others.
The report opens with a foreword from Mike Wilson, managing director of KUKA UK and Ireland as well as chairman of the British Automation and Robot Association (BARA). In it, Wilson challenges the conventional view that uncertainty should be a fact of life.
“The UK is well known as a source of excellence in engineering and innovation. We are the home for leading global businesses such as Rolls Royce and BAE Systems, as well as many much smaller, highly creative engineering companies,” explains Wilson. “The current economic climate is uncertain, but I have confidence the resilience of our engineering sector will weather the changing environment and may well become stronger as a result.”
