Britain Doesn't Make Anything Anymore

"We have lost our manufacturing base, we don't make things anymore in the UK".

I get sick and tired of this uneducated, generalist drivel.

If we cannot make things how come ARM (based Cambridge) has a chip in 94% of the world's smart phones?

If we cannot manufacture anymore, how come Rolls Royce had a turnover of £10billion and profits of £915m last year?

Two examples that prove the naysayers quite wrong. We work with a number of manufacturers every year and they are universally exasperated by the media, politicians and the doubting idiots who say we have lost our manufacturing base.

Did you know that the UK is still the 6th largest manufacturer in the world?
