In addition, we also aim to help convey to the next generation of engineers about the potential of manufacturing as an exciting and rewarding career path.greater degree of coverage and information about the global manufacturing market.

The Manufacturer has been providing the latest information available to UK manufacturers for well over a decade and is also responsible for the UK's premier manufacturing awards - The Manufacturer of the Year Awards. If you are not already a subscriber, now is the perfect time to become one. By pledging as little as £25 you will be able to access The Manufacturer's new global site from October and enjoy being kept up to date with the latest manufacturing information from around the world.

Currently, The Manufacturer's audience is made up of senior level and board level manufacturers and other professionals working within the manufacturing industry. The Manufacturer website attracts over 35,000 individual viewers each month who  and we have a magazine readership in excess of 18,000.

Stage one of our expansion plans will involve web development and design and we have set a target of £15,000 to contribute to these costs. Once this target has been reached then stage two will contribute to facilitate the launches of each of the individual regional websites and additionally help cover the delivery costs such as content creation, promotion, hosting and hardware requirements.

Of our £15,000 target, we will be contributing £8,000 to the part payment of the web development and design costs. The remaining £7,000 will be contribute to facilitate the launches of each of the individual regional websites and help cover the delivery costs such as content creation, promotion, hosting and hardware requirements.

Our goal is to help manufacturers from all sectors from food and drink to aerospace, from business owners and MDs to designers and engineers. We want all manufacturers be as successful as possible and will aim to keep companies up to date with the latest information from around the world. On top of this we are working hard to make The Manufacturer website and suite of affiliated websites (which are currently under development) as innovative as possible to assist manufacturers to spend more time doing what they do best, making quality goods. We look forward to showing you what we've been working on in the coming months.

We hope you can help us achieve these goals and we hope to reward you in kind.
