At Armstrong Watson we firmly believe that a successful, export led manufacturing base is central to the future prosperity of the UK, in particular the regions and communities that we serve. As a result, we are passionate about helping you, our regions’ manufacturers, to thrive, prosper and grow.

You’re currently facing a unique set of challenges within the manufacturing sector – a shortage of skills, lack of clarity re access to funding for capex and working capital, constant innovation in process and technology, and uncertainty and opportunity created by Brexit. We spend time with you and your colleagues in the manufacturing community, so that we can understand those challenges and build bespoke solutions designed to address them. 

Our passion for manufacturing, allied with our understanding of the local family business community and our membership of the MSI global alliance - which covers over 100 countries across the globe – means that like you, we are locally focussed but with international capability and reach. Passionate, local and international - Armstrong Watson are the perfect fit for you, the ambitious, independent manufacturers of the North of England and Scotland.
