Members can make much more of membership when they pick up the phone and call their fellow manufacturers.
Tile manufacturers BCT approached Made in Britain with a plan to offer manufacturers in the high-end interiors, specification and design sectors, the chance to present their products with them, at their London Hub during Clerkenwell Design Week.  

      

Premium shower enclosure manufacturer, Roman Ltd, hand-made designer fabrics makers, March & May, Whitebirk Sink Co makers Darwen Terracotta and The London Chocolate Co all joined forces to celebrate British manufacturing and demonstrate how the sector is thriving in an uncertain economic climate.  

Liam Poole, Head of Specification Marketing at British Ceramic Tiles
“After hosting our first MiB workshop in 2017 at the factory in Newton Abbot for members in Devon, the next natural step for BCT was go further to strengthen our relationship with the #1000maker community .“

Tina Clark, London Hub Manager for BCT
“The added PR value of a demonstration or a new product launch gives the journalists, designers and specifiers even more reasons to spend more time at the BCT Hub. The more time they are here, the more we can showcase our new specification ranges and work on ideas for the future design and architectural trends."

Jon Wilson, MD at Whitebirk Sink Co 
“It only took me about 5 seconds to say 'yes'! An opportunity to present the new Whitebirk range of Made in Britain bespoke Belfast sinks, in this kind of designer sales location was just irresistible. I hope they’ll have us back next year.” 

Designer Hand-made Fabrics maker March & May
“We’re building the reputation of our brand and our products through trade shows and showing our customers exactly how we make our products. The opportunity to do a live demonstration for the media and designers in such a key location during CDW was really valuable and a lot of fun." 

Paul Hyde, International Specification Manager, Roman Ltd
"There’s never been a more compelling time to buy British. Being alongside other members making other products adds to our message of British made being of the highest quality, at the right price and with a smaller carbon footprint. Why wait 16 weeks when you can buy from Roman in the UK, and have the shower enclosure designed, made, delivered and installed in one month."
