The BCF is proud to be part of the Reshoring UK initiative, a web-based supplier and buyer portal which has been developed as a comprehensive map of the vast number of capabilities available within the UK. Currently holding the details of 4,500 companies from 22 Trade Associations, it allows users to build a connected network that forms the foundation of a robust, end-to-end supply chain for any manufacturing or technology focused businesses.
Julia Moore is the CEO of GTMA, the Trade Association representing engineering companies and manufacturing associations and who backed the initiative, and said
“Ever since manufacturers began outsourcing production to more competitively priced overseas economies there has been a race to the bottom based on price. However, there is an intrinsic value attached to making things here in the UK, not least being the opportunities to innovate. Reshoring UK highlights the skills and resources of the UK supply chains and aids manufacturers when considering domestic production for new projects or for the relocation ‘onshore’ of existing work programmes.”
