With a list of manufacturing companies, sales and marketing teams can contact decision makers directly across this valuable sector.

Despite the common misconception that the United Kingdom doesn’t make anything anymore, we are in fact the ninth largest manufacturing nation in the world.

Since 1948, through periodic recessions and outbreaks of civil unrest, the rise of digital technology, the UK manufacturing industry has grown by an average of 1.4% every year.

According to MAKE UK (formerly the Manufacturer’s Organisation), manufacturing businesses contribute £192bn to the UK economy. The sector leads the way in UK export operations, research and development projects and employs a total of 2.7m people.

Manufacturing companies purchase both specialist sector-related and general business products and services to support innovation and keep business running.

The sector has been hit by both Brexit and COVID-19. Industry observers expect a rapid bounce back and a concerted effort to grow markets outside the EU27 countries.

UK manufacturing companies mailing list

There are 64,345 registered limited and PLC manufacturing companies on our database. Our list of manufacturing companies is part of our wider UK business database.

If you’re interested in targeting firms outside the manufacturing sector, please let us know when you contact us.

We can provide a solution if you lack the infrastructure to carry out direct marketing to promote your products and services to manufacturers.
