Looking back on 2020, there will of course be one issue that dominates any discussion. The global COVID-19 pandemic has touched just about every British business in some way. And manufacturers have been affected as much as many.

Though some have benefited from changing behaviour during lockdown, many more have suffered from issues including falling consumer confidence, supply chain disruption and continuing trade and travel restrictions.

We commissioned this research because we believe it’s important that manufacturers have a voice to share the challenges, opportunities and objectives that are leading the agenda in boardrooms across Britain.

The report combines the views of more than 200 C-suite executives to give an insight in to the unprecedented actions British manufacturers are taking to survive the pandemic and their preparations for recovery.

It finds a sector showing real resilience, with a focus on efficiency, flexibility and sustainability.

We hope you find their views enlightening and inspiring.
