Helping manufacturers combat challenges and succeed

Be the best you can be with Manufacturers Network. We help manufacturers in the UK and across the globe with our vision to build a knowledge-sharing community where everyone develops and challenges each other to be better every day.


Whether that means making processes more efficient, boosting quality, or attracting and retaining talent, we’ll help you tackle challenges and reach your potential.


But don’t worry; we’re not consultants preaching the latest theories or teaching from a textbook. That’s not us. Instead, we’re industry specialists. Our team have walked the walk in manufacturing businesses of all sizes and all sectors.

We draw on our front-line experience and expertise to understand your systems, listen to your needs, uncover opportunities and clarify your objectives. Armed with this know-how, we’ll work closely together to create a plan to help you achieve your ambitions. We’re not afraid of change or challenges – if we need to break convention to make a positive difference, we will.

Mark Leeson

"In recent years, we have been lucky enough to be on our own improvement journey, working with some of the world's most effective manufacturing organisations and leading minds in the sector. This has helped us to discover a phenomenal amount about ourselves and how we can enhance our level of service delivery, developing an armoury of fresh ideas on how we can support businesses with knowledge transfer and accountable learning. And so, Manufacturers Network was born."
