The UK currently sports the ninth largest manufacturing industry in the world, being situated in front of other heavy weight nations such as Russia, Brazil and Mexico. The manufacturing industry within the UK employs in excess of 2.7million people across a broad range of specialised production fields including defence, nuclear, automotive, construction, plastic, steel and even the space industry.

This means that the UK manufacturing industry contributes £213billion into the economy every single year whilst accounting for 45% of the country’s total exports. When analysing the manufacturing sector it’s not difficult to see why auctions containing manufacturing, industrial and plant equipment are so popular. Within the UK, the aerospace manufacturing sector has over a decade’s worth of work currently on the books (this equates to over 13,000 aircraft), in the defence sector BAE employs over 40,000 people and in plastic manufacturing the UK produces over 4.5million tonnes annually from either direct or recycled methods.
