British Made for Quality (BMFQ) has campaigned to keep manufacturing in Britain since incorporation in 2002.
We publicised the decline in manufacturing, and pleaded for its reversal. We asked for government support for and pride in the British manufacturing industry, rather than enthusiasm and cant for offshore manufacture.

The Coalition Now Tells Us We Must Rebuild Our Manufacturing Industry!
Brave words after decades of decline largely caused by the mistaken Ministerial and academic belief that a strong economy could be built on the back of Banking, Financial Services and the EU – the latter with its seemingly endless regulation and rising costs, now proving for the UK to be perhaps the most expensive and least beneficial Members’ Club ever knowingly joined!
The future for SME’s remains decidedly uphill in spite of the promise of financial support for growth, new ventures, and exports; also the promise of an increase in public sector purchasing from British suppliers.
Britain's manufacturing industry was once the envy of the world. It has been in steep decline for several decades. Re-growth requires much more than Government sound bytes. See our recent story: 'Unexpected enemies of manufacturing'.
We continue to import high levels of goods sourced from China and the Asian bloc – yet seem to ignore the very significant export potential for British products offered by this vast Asian marketplace – which, believe it or not, would like to buy British products. See our recent story: ‘Exporting to the Asian market’.
Advertisements for jobs in manufacturing are on the increase, yet many companies experience difficulty in finding trainees having reasonable literacy or a strong work ethic; for many companies just another hurdle in the quest for growth.
