Made in Yorkshire, part of the Made in Group, exists to champion and promote UK Manufacturing. This community, along with Made in the Midlands and Made in London, originated in 2009 as a simple pledge signed by the Managing Director’s of manufacturing firms to do 3 things:
To open a channel of communication within local firms to source and supply locally where possible,
To upskill and reskill workforces, and finally
To promote good news from manufacturing businesses in order to counteract the adversity in the media that ultimately undermines confidence.
Crompton Controls are long time members of the group and have been involved in exhibitions and events both physical and more recently virtual and we're looking forward to our next virtual breakfast morning with fellow members.
We can trace our roots back to the 19th Century pioneering electrical engineer Rookes Evelyn Bell Crompton who was responsible for one of the worlds first public electricity supplies & introduced lighting networks to Australia & India.
