Do you want to manufacture a product in the UK? Not sure where to start?
Are you struggling to find the right UK manufacturer? Confused about the different types of factories and suppliers and not sure which one is right for you?
I’m Kate Hills, the founder of Make it British, and I can help!
I know that finding a factory or supplier in the UK is never that easy.
I can help guide you through the process.
From finding the perfect UK manufacturing partner, to guiding you through the process from start to finish.
I want to see more and more businesses giving work to UK factories, that’s part of the reason that I set up Make it British. I know all of the best places to go, and I want to make sure you do too.
I have helped connect hundreds of designers, buyers and retailers with quality UK clothing, textile and handbag manufacturers over the past five years, and I would be delighted to help you as well.
Here are some of the ways that we can work together:
This is a 30 minute phone or video consultation with me in which we discuss what your challenges are. This may be advice on which manufacturer to choose, a manufacturing problem that you want help with, or just a sense check on a project that you have.
The call is followed up with an email covering what we discussed, the contact details of any manufacturers or organisations suggested, and a recording of the call.
This is much more indepth help with finding and working with a UK manufacturer.
We start with a one hour telephone or video call in which I get detailed information from you about your project, the type of products that you are looking to make. I’ll follow this up with an email detailing what we have covered, as well as a copy of the call recording.
I will then go away and find the type of manufacturers that you need and put together a list, including what their specialisms are and their contact details.
We follow this up with a 30 minute call to discuss my findings and cover any further questions that you have before you start to approach the manufacturers that I have selected for you
Not sure which option to choose? Book a 15 minute discovery call with me to help make your decision.
