Our Manufacturing sector expertise

The UK is one of the world’s biggest manufacturing nations, employing nearly three million people directly and investing massively in R&D. The businesses involved in manufacturing are as broad as the classification itself, but innovative start-ups with cutting edge technology and established multi-national corporates share common challenges and concerns.

DMH Stallard has a long history of supporting the manufacturing sector and is proud to work with companies from diverse sub-sectors such as high value engineering, automotive, aerospace, chemicals, electronics, food and drink, pharmaceuticals, textiles and retail/consumer products.

The manufacturing industry is fast-paced and highly regulated, so legal challenges can pose significant risks to businesses. Our experience in the manufacturing sector means that we can apply our technical expertise to work with your business, enabling you to navigate the complex legal landscape and providing a proactive approach to identify and mitigate potential risks before they escalate.




DMH Stallard are sponsors of METALL, an established forum for manufacturing, engineering and technology businesses. The forum brings together businesses to network at thought-provoking presentations and workshops, share best practice, signpost growth opportunities, and discuss issues affecting businesses in the sector.

You can find more information on the METALL website and register to receive information about forthcoming events here.
