Success and Sustainability in the UK Automotive Industry - April 2006
Knowledge and skills play an increasingly important role in the UK's capacity for innovation and growth. And the motor industry in the UK is meeting those challenges successfully, measured by its total activity rather than by the assembly of the final product. The UK is consolidating its leading position as a centre of excellence in the production of vehicles and components, satisfying the demand of a vibrant domestic market and providing wider access to the rest of the European customer base.
The UK is an excellent place to do business. It is home to an increasingly dynamic industry at the forefront of process improvement, product innovation and best practice, delivered by the best people. We have skills and flexibility in our workforce, we have the backbone of our world-beating motor sports experience, we have the engineering capability, we have a proven track record for innovative development, and our designers are world-renowned.
