Midland Pallet Trucks, a leading provider of materials handling solutions in the UK, has responded to the recent call from the head of the manufacturing sector’s lobby group for a “reset” in the UK’s relationship with the European Union.
Stephen Phipson’s warning that international suppliers have increasingly turned their backs on the UK is a cause for concern for the entire manufacturing industry. The political turmoil in the UK, coupled with the supply chain strains caused by Brexit and the COVID-19 pandemic, have created significant challenges for businesses of all sizes.
The recent survey commissioned by Make UK shows that almost half of the respondent companies said EU suppliers were now more cautious about the UK, and a third of non-EU suppliers took the same view. This trend is worrying, as it may lead to supply chain disruptions and higher costs for businesses.
As a leading provider of materials handling solutions, Midland Pallet Trucks recognises the importance of the warehouse industry’s productivity and efficiency in protecting the UK economy. With 40% of manufacturers having reshored suppliers in the last year, and a similar figure planning to do so during 2023, the UK warehouse industry needs to up its game to remain competitive.
Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Midland Pallet Trucks, says, “We are committed to supporting our customers in improving their warehouse operations with the provision of affordable, high-quality pallet trucks. Our range of products are designed to meet the needs of businesses of all sizes, from small start-ups to large multinational corporations”.
Midland Pallet Trucks provides a diverse selection of pallet trucks tailored to the distinct requirements of various industries with the aim of enhancing warehouse organisation. Their product line includes electric pallet trucks, hand pallet trucks, and weighing scale trucks, each engineered for optimal efficiency and safety.
Phil adds, “As the UK continues to face significant issues in the post-Brexit era, we are ready to help our customers navigate the changing landscape and emerge stronger and more competitive than ever. We remain committed to our customers, our employees, and the UK economy, and we look forward to working together to overcome the current challenges”.
