017 – Get Set for Manufacturing Challenge: Day 2
Can a manufacturer source materials for you?
Whilst some manufacturers may be able to source raw materials for you, depending on the product, in reality most UK manufacturers won’t have the time or the resources to do so.
On this episode I look at why this might be – and what you can do to overcome it.
This episode is the second in a series of 5 podcasts that accompany my Get Set for Manufacturing Challenge.
Each episode will tackle one of the 5 key things that you need to consider if you want to start working with a a UK manufacturer.
To take part in the challenge go to makeitbritish.co.uk/getset and I’ll send you all the details.
The show notes for this podcast along with a full transcript can be found at makeitbritish.co.uk/017
