What we do

What We Do At The Manufacturing Institute

We work with many of the UK’s largest manufacturers to build operational excellence in some of the world’s most effective factories and their supply chains. During the last decade we have helped over 9,000 manufacturers to improve their processes, delivering improvements worth over £1.1 billion.

Education is at the heart of everything we do and we also deliver a wide range of education and lean manufacturing training courses to help manufacturers drive the very latest techniques and thinking directly into their businesses as quickly as possible.
