Tratos hosts Made in Britain workshop

 North West businesses were invited to explore a culture of innovation at work in one of the most dynamic industries, at a Made in Britain workshop this week (Wednesday 9th May).

Independent cable maker Tratos welcomed fellow members at its Knowsley, Merseyside, factory, together with MiB organisers, representatives from Dept for International Trade, Crown Commercial Service, Lloyds Bank, SME Manufacturing.

Special guests included local, hand-crafted leather satchel maker and one of the founder members of MiB, the Leather Satchel Co’s Keith Hanshaw.  

Made in Britain (MiB) is the official organisation that brings together the entire manufacturing community in Britain under a collective marque to benefit their business across sales, marketing, exports and PR.

Becoming a part of the #1000 maker membership group of MiB encourages buyers, specifiers and ultimately, consumers to choose high quality, innovative British-made goods as well as promoting trading relationships within the organisation’s community. Only manufacturers are eligible to appear on MiB’s Directory for procurement, that now includes 50 product sectors.

Speakers during the day included Tratos technical and development director Peter Waterworth and UK Sales Manager, Mass Transit, Chris Harris. Both talked about how the company is developing bespoke cable solutions for a range of market sectors in the UK and across the world.  

Marketers drawn from membership, at the business development focussed workshop, listened to topics ranging from exporting to how being ‘Made in Britain’ can be leveraged to make more sales.

Commenting upon the event Made in Britain CEO John Pearce, said: “This was an inspirational day for all who attended, and I am sure that the Made in Britain team will be back soon, as we know many other members would benefit from learning together about Tratos and seeing how it does what it does so well.”
