CONTENTS

WELCOME TO

A NEW SUPPLY CHAIN

SHOWCASE

Welcome to the first edition of the new GTMA magazine "Supply

Chain Solutions." The introduction of this publication is the latest

in a series of measures started by the Board over six years ago

when they were looking at ways the GTMA could best serve its

members and move away from the traditional representation role

which trade associations had been for many years.

It was decided then that the best way to help our members was to

find a new way to showcase their skills and products before a wider

audience and help them get into the supply chain of the major manufacturers

and their Tier One companies by providing a recognised

engineering supply chain of the level two and three suppliers.

This publication will replace the successful GTMA News and is firmly

set at allowing the members to promote the products and technologies they use to the wider market place in today's

growing engineering

sector. In particular the need for complex and precision tool manufacture

which has seen an improvement in its market, both from reshoring

work previously outsourced and from emerging, Far East markets and

Global companies recognising the technical expertise within UK

industry.

SUPPLY CHAIN BENEFITS

Supply Chain Solutions will be sent not only to member companies

but also to a wide range of key personnel working in the supply chain

management of major companies and suppliers in industry sectors of

Aerospace, Automotive, Medical, Rail, Energy and many more, who

will be able then to access the articles, technical information and

company advertisements where you as key suppliers can only lay out

your products and services for the UK market place to see.

The journal will also be available on the GTMA website

www.gtma.co.uk and showcased at MACH 2014 and Farnborough

Airshow.

The Board hopes that you, the membership, and our industry readers

will recognise the benefits of the path we have taken, but it can only

be successful with your active participation and keenness to see your

products helping the expansion and resurgence of the UK manufacturing industry.

Geoff Highley

President, GTMA Board of Directors
