Wiltshire manufacturing is healthy, says Herman Miller boss

Wednesday 30 July 2014

Sceptics say that the UK’s manufacturing industry has had its time, but that’s simply not the case according to Graham Dean, UK Operations Director at Herman Miller. According to Graham, manufacturing in the UK, and particularly Wiltshire is looking healthy.
Graham leads the UK arm of Herman Miller, an international manufacturer of quality office furniture and equipment and last year received the Supply Chain Excellence Award at The Manufacturer of the Year Awards 2013. Its European Headquarters has been based in Chippenham since 1969 and employs around 220 people locally.
When Herman Miller first moved to the UK, the manufacturing industry was going strong, but tailed off towards the end of the century. But now, Graham argues that manufacturing is going through a renaissance, with clear government initiatives designed to encourage its growth.
“It’s all a part of what the government calls rebalancing the economy, and growing the manufacturing industry is a key part of that,” said Graham. But what’s great is that he sees a number of manufacturers in the local area and a lot of local talent coming through.
“Wiltshire is very vibrant for manufacturing right now – we have a lot of high-value companies based here which employ a huge amount of people,” Herman Miller also has local ties to the area, placing high value on its regular apprentice and graduate scheme offerings.
“People tend to see the manufacturing industry through old stereotypes, but a lot has changed and now manufacturing is one of the most exciting places to be.
