At Knill James we know from experience that, contrary to popular perception, the manufacturing sector in the UK is alive and kicking - albeit facing many challenges and operating in a very different way to the traditional 'smoke stack' image. These days manufacturing businesses have to manage additional risks and volatility, including those arising from overseas operations.
