Zaun Renew Made in Britain Membership

folder_openCorporate, Manufacturing

At Zaun, we’re proud of our heritage, our quality, and of the skills each of our team members have to offer. We want to promote that wherever and however possible, and so the Made in Britain scheme is tailor-made for us. Indeed, we’re proud to call ourselves founding members of the scheme, and we have just renewed our membership.

What is the Made in Britain scheme?

The Made in Britain scheme is made up of British businesses that are proud to put the “Made in Britain” standard mark onto everything that they produce. Much is spoken about the lack of manufacturing Britain has to offer, and while there is always room for improvements, the reality of the fact is Britain still produces many high-quality products. From the artisanal to the engineering-focused, our homegrown manufacturing and design talent is world-class.

The Made in Britain scheme awards a “Made in Britain” check-mark to member organisations. To earn it, however, there must be rigorous quality control standards in place to ensure the products and services they’re offering are worthy of that moniker. The scheme is intended to shine a light on the sheer quality and variety that is available throughout the British manufacturing industry. This is something we’re more than proud to be a part of at Zaun.

We wear our Made in Britain checkmark literally on our sleeves.

What does it mean for our products?

Our Made in Britain membership is a testament to the intensive quality control processes that we have in place at Zaun. Our whole manufacturing process has been tailored to ensure that efficiency and time savings are made wherever possible. But none of that is allowed to cut into the quality control standards we set for ourselves. We know that our clients are discerning, which means we take it as a point of pride that we ensure the products we offer them are only of the best possible quality. The fact that we have so many long-term clients is proof our efforts are worthwhile.

The Made in Britain checkmark is more than just about that, however – it’s about ensuring the world is aware that Britain still has a thriving manufacturing industry. We have a highly talented workforce who are consistently creating better and better products to service all manner of industries. That’s why it makes sense to buy British.

A homegrown, thriving manufacturing industry is essential to cultivate, as it also gives us the onus to encourage the next generation of manufacturing specialists into the workforce. Skills, knowledge, and understanding are passed down, techniques are constantly honed, and the prestige of the Made in Britain checkmark keeps growing.

Our industry focus going forward

We’re committed to improving the understanding of the quality offered by British manufacturing on both a national and international scale. We want people at home to know what is available on their own doorstep, and people on the other side of the world to know what kind of quality they can invest in. Quality is a global currency.

To that end, the Made in Britain checkmark is a simple and clear way to illustrate that any business, ours included, is operating to the strictest possible quality control standards. This isn’t a cheap marketing ploy, it’s an earnest declaration of pride resulting from the effort we know our team makes on a daily basis to provide our clients with the best quality products. Without rigorous testing, the mark would be meaningless. As it stands, it has been well-earned.

This is why Zaun is proud to renew its Made in Britain membership for another year, as a British manufacturer who supports British manufacturing.
