Made in Yorkshire’s next breakfast morning event will be taking place on 9th November from 9:30 at Portakabin’s Head Office, 86 New Lane in York, Yorkshire. 

The Portakabin Group has a long heritage and a long-standing pivotal role in both the UK construction industry and in British manufacturing. It continues to be the pioneer in off-site construction and in breaking new ground with the speed, scale, complexity, efficiency and sustainability of its building solutions.

Portakabin revealed that attendees are able to host eight table top stands, as Matthew Stevens, Business Development Manager explained: “I think it’s a great opportunity for them to come and highlight the services and products they can offer to help other Yorkshire based manufacturers combine and work together. Working with people who you can build a relationship with locally is always beneficial.” 

Stevens explained that the event will be free for all Made in Yorkshire members, although he added: “We wouldn’t want to restrict that too much, so potentially we will welcome non-members wanting to attend. It will be a great showcase of proud Yorkshire manufacturing, we have been manufacturing for over 50 years, we have a massive site in York itself and we want to network and demonstrate to other companies in Yorkshire the services we can offer.”

Made in Yorkshire members are encouraged to actively network and create collaboration opportunities within their area. Stevens said: “I think these events are very important, as it gives you a great opportunity to speak to like-minded people, and find out about trends in the region. It also helps to generate awareness of products that you may be sourcing from 100’s of miles away when there might be a local company who does it. This can lead to cost savings and supply chain benefits for everyone involved.” 

Made in Yorkshire MD, Jason Pitt concluded: “We have never really facilitated a breakfast event where attendees have been given the chance to exhibit their services via a table top stand. I think this is a fantastic offering for Made in Yorkshire members, so we are looking forward to engaging with new and proud Yorkshire manufacturers.”
