Who we are

We are the manufacturers' organisation, helping thousands of companies to evolve and compete in a fast-changing world.

EEF is dedicated to the future of manufacturing. Everything we do is designed to help manufacturing businesses evolve, innovate and compete in a fast-changing world. With our unique combination of business services, government representation and industry intelligence, no other organisation is better placed to provide the skills, knowledge and networks they need to thrive.

As the manufacturers' organisation, we believe that a modern, competitive and innovative manufacturing industry is central to the UK's economic future. Everything we do - working with manufacturers and policy makers - is designed to help that industry flourish and to meet the world's evolving appetite for innovative and responsibly-produced manufactured goods.

Manufacturing is responsible for 55% of UK exports and its productivity regularly outpaces economic growth. All of this helps the UK maintain its position as the world's sixth largest manufacturing nation – a position we're working diligently to improve.

How we work

Around a quarter of the UK's manufacturing businesses are our members and many more use our services to help them work.

Because we understand manufacturers so well, policy makers trust our advice and welcome our involvement in their deliberations.  We work with them to create policies that are in the best interests of manufacturing, that encourage a high growth industry and boost its ability to make a positive contribution to the UK's real economy.

Our policy work delivers real business value for our members, giving us a unique insight into the way changing legislation will affect their business. 

This insight, complemented by intelligence gathered through our ongoing member research and networking programmes, informs our broad portfolio of services; services that unlock business potential by creating highly productive workplaces in which innovation, creativity and competitiveness can thrive.

Our focus on manufacturing

Our ability to anticipate developments in the manufacturing arena, and to influence the legislation that governs it, will keep your business ahead of the curve.

Our broad portfolio of services are designed to deliver maximum value in modern manufacturing environments.  Because they're delivered by individuals who are experts, both in their chosen field and in manufacturing itself, you can be sure they'll be relevant to your business, tailored to your situation and relevant to your objectives. You can engage with us as a member business, or simply as a customer for our consultancy and training.

Membership

For our member community – around a quarter of all of the UK's manufacturing businesses – we can offer a unique insight into emerging trends and the innovative new directions being taken by forward thinking-organisations. 

Through networking and regular intelligence reports we share these insights for the benefit of all, encouraging the cross fertilisation of ideas and the sharing of best practice that will keep your industry and your business competitive.

EEF is the only membership organisation dedicated entirely to the manufacturing industry.  That means when we represent manufacturers' interests to government, we do so with expert knowledge and without compromise. 

As a result our views are trusted at the highest level and we are frequently called upon to advise regional, national and European policy makers.

Issues we can help with

After the failure of the financial markets, the pundits and politicians finally agree. Britain needs a balanced economy. Quite right. And it's you - the nation's manufacturers - that can deliver it.

The first half of 2009 was tough. And there's no guarantee it won't get worse before it gets better. But, as ever, the future lies in our own hands. And as we start to see a glimmer or two of better news on the way, wise heads are already planning for the upturn.

As businesses we need to seize the initiative, demand the support we need from government and prove to the world that UK manufacturing can deliver the goods.

And EEF is here to lend its support -  to the industry and to you. Check back here regularly for the latest intelligence, resources and ideas that will help you plan your way to a brighter future.
