009 – How to Manufacture in the UK for Less
Do you think that manufacturing in the UK is more expensive?
In this episode I dispel some of the myths around making in the UK being more pricey. Quite often it’s down to not WHERE you manufacture, but WHAT you manufacture.
Yes, the price of labour in the U.K. is higher than it is in many other countries, so products which are very labour intensive will have a higher cost price.
But when you compare the cost price of a product made overseas, are you comparing eggs with eggs?
There are lots of other factors to take into consideration, and if you do it right, making in the U.K. can be very cost effective.
You also have to ask yourself – if a manufacturer is TOO cheap, then why is that?
