In the current economic climate, with Brexit looming and imports gradually becoming more expensive in the light of the associated fall in sterling, you would expect UK manufactured products to become more attractive to the home market.
However, there are much more compelling reasons for working with UK based suppliers, especially small and micro businesses (including Jalu Ltd):
- Personal working relationships and strong customer service – often with a direct line to us, the business owners. As a small business, we compete with larger competitors by providing a more ‘hands on’ approach and personalised customer service.
- Nimble and flexible – we can respond quickly to a change in market trends and customer demand, and often work closely with our clients to develop bespoke and unique products.
- Exceptional craftsmanship – creative design and manufacturing skills in the UK are amongst the best in the world and we are able to produce innovative, high quality and hand crafted products that cannot be sourced elsewhere.
Sound commercial and pragmatic reasons to take another look at the UK supply base and to engage with small businesses. Come and talk to us and see what we can do for you!
