The FSB has pledged its fullest support for a campaign to promote the “Made in Sheffield” brand.
The FSB’s South Yorkshire Chairman, Andrew Flower, said: “A campaign to restore the reputation of the Sheffield City Region to its rightful place as the world leader in manufacturing technology is long overdue. The investment shown by the likes of Boeing, McLaren and Rolls Royce serves to underline what we in Sheffield always knew: that the city and its surrounding area is the cradle of world technology, innovation and ingenuity. Our two-hundred year history of manufacturing the finest precision-engineered products, coupled with the research and development excellence of our great universities, sets this city region apart from anywhere else in the world.
“Once again small manufacturers are starting to reappear around the region, introducing a new generation of engineers and innovators to facilitate an effective supply chain for the likes of Forgemasters and Liberty.
