    Rising to the challenge: UK manufacturers and the CoronaVirus Crisis

    The Manufacturer's editorial team discuss the inspirational manner in which manufacturers have responded to the Coronavirus outbreak and what it means for the future of the sector. Will life in the sector ever be the same again? How can supply chains be made more resilient? And will the spirit of collaboration that has typified the sector's response live on?

    Nick Peters, Jonny Williamson and Nicholas Cox are joined by Tim Minshall of Cambridge University's Institute for Manufacturing, Peter Bruch, MD of the Midlands-based AE Aerospace, and Carl Haycock of the award-winning Domino Printing Sciences company in Cambridge.
