Welcome to the 20th edition of AUTOMATED and our first edition of 2020. To kick off the new year, we will explore how the manufacturing supply chain is developing across the world.
We start by looking at how countries across Central and Eastern Europe are investing in automation to compete with industry leaders such as the UK and Germany. We explore the initiatives in Hungary, Slovakia, Poland and Slovenia that are investing in education, technology and local business to help realise Industry 4.0.
In this edition, we will also look at how manufacturing can support emerging economies, focussing on digitalisation across Africa. We then explore how businesses can benefit from a global supply chain to meet regional market demand.
We also have an exclusive interview with the team at Composites UK about how the wider manufacturing industry can benefit from investing in composite materials.
We hope you enjoy our 20th issue.
