By 2030, a modern and progressive UK Metals Industry should be supplying high quality, innovative and competitively priced products to a wide range of customers.
To achieve this aim, every company in the Metals Industry supply chain needs to engage more closely with its key customers to better meet their individual needs. At the same time, the government needs to be encouraged to support domestic suppliers as much as possible.
The industry should perform a full analysis of each supply chain, examine the potential opportunities and then tailor its capabilities and future investment to each sector’s needs. The initial focus will include the Automotive, Nuclear Energy, Construction and aerospace sectors.
The industry needs to find new ways to encourage end users, as well as the government and infrastructure providers to make more procurement decisions in favour of UK suppliers while celebrating UK Metals success stories.
To help achieve this supply chain aim, commitments sought from policymakers may include:
To that end, by the end of 2016, it is hoped that publicly enabled infrastructure projects will have been set targets to source at least 50% of materials locally.
