Microlise has joined manufacturers’ organisation MAKE UK, becoming a member alongside the UK’s leading manufacturers and innovators. With significant expertise in the area of connected technology and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Microlise looks forward to collaborating with and supporting members, particularly as the supply chain landscape and trading environment beyond Brexit presents a unique set of challenges that digitisation can do much to overcome.
Britain is one of the world’s biggest manufacturing nations, with almost 3 million people working in the sector and delivering almost half of all exports. UK manufacturers drive over 60% of all research and development, driving change and transformation. According to David Midgley, OEM & Channel Director at Microlise, the company’s early involvement has already proved to be constructive:
“We have taken part in a number of events and webinars and can see lots of potential synergy between ourselves and other like-minded manufacturers. As a proud UK-based designer, developer and manufacturer of the hardware, firmware and applications that underpin our connected platform, and our on-highway telematics and technology solutions, we look forward to participating more widely and to sharing our thirty-plus years of global experience with other members.”
Charlotte Horobin, Region Director, Make UK added: “I am delighted to welcome Microlise into the largest community of UK manufacturers. Microlise is an ambitious and dynamic company that brings real technological expertise to the table. I look forward to working with them through Make UK’s portfolio of services, events and network to support their business growth and drive forward technological innovation within the sector.”
Nottingham based Microlise is the proud holder of two consecutive Queen’s Awards for Enterprise – International Trade in 2018 and Innovation in 2019, in recognition of the industry-leading solutions we export around the world, most notably to Tata Motors in India. The company works with a number of manufacturers, such as JCB in the off-highway space, and MAN Truck & Bus on-highway, in the UK and across the Middle East & Africa, supporting these world-leading organisations to gain insight into their own products and enhance customer experience, through our connected offering.
