Industry Forum was initially formed as a unique collaboration between leading vehicle manufacturers, the SMMT and the government to improve the performance and competitiveness of the UK’s automotive supply chain. By 1996, Industry Forum had developed a model to achieve this by seconding highly skilled master engineers from the founding partners to transfer their skills to Industry Forum engineers through a ‘learning by doing’ approach.
Continued measurable success has led to sustained growth into many other sectors, including aerospace, construction, domestic appliances, electronics, and food. Industry Forum now provides support to blue chip organisations in more than 30 countries across five continents.
Today, Industry Forum boasts over 150 specialist consultants and trainers, has delivered in excess of 400 consultancy programmes worldwide and trained over 25,000 individuals.
Industry Forum's customers recommend us time and time again as we are one of their kind, and fit in because all of our consultants and trainers have manufacturing and supply chain leadership and shop floor experience.
