European industrial product supply network
18 May 2018
EURIS, the industrial product supply association which covers sectors responsible for more than 25% of total UK goods imports and exports, has announced the creation of a EURIS European Network to deliver the best outcome from Brexit for the industrial product supply sector.
The announcement comes after the first EURIS summit on Brexit, which has seen industry associations from across Europe come together to discuss and agree a joint UK-EU industry working plan to ensure a successful Brexit for product manufacturers.
The EURIS summit, held in the Shard, involved contributions from CEOs and Government advisers of trade bodies from across Europe, including Germany, Portugal and Sweden, as well as contributions from the UK product supply sector who have all expressed support for the creation of this network.
The newly-created European industrial product supply network will be an advisory body for the potential impacts of the changing relationship between the UK and EU; for Governments, manufacturers and the media and will be offering real solutions to the challenges presented by Brexit for the sector as well as ideas on how to maximise the opportunities Brexit presents.
Dr Howard Porter, EURIS chair, said: “We are delighted to be able to announce the creation of this EURIS European Network. The industrial product supply sector has come together in a constructive manner to establish a working party to deliver the best Brexit for our industry. This is an important time for our sector and we look forward to announcing the outputs of our network in the coming months.”
Steve Brambley, EURIS vice-chair, added: “There are many areas where UK and EU industry can work together to achieve the best outcome for all of us and the EURIS European summit has been an excellent starting point for this discussion. The announcement of the creation of a European EURIS Network is an exciting development.”
