Make it British – #madeinUKday – 9th March 2021

Here at Evo Supplies, we’re passionate about supporting UK manufacturers (being one ourselves!), which is why we’re proudly taking part in promoting the first ever #madeinUKday by Make it British.

As a way to mark their 10th anniversary as an organisation and helping to link customers with UK-made products and manufacturers, Make it British are holding the first #madeinUKday on Tuesday 9th March 2021. During the run up to the event and on the day itself, businesses and consumers will be encouraged to get involved in a few different ways.

As a business, like us you can help to champion UK-made products by downloading the media pack here and joining us in ‘spreading the word’ about the campaign, as well as the many benefits of buying British products. Consumers can also download these resources, share the message and make the pledge to buy UK-made products more frequently.

But what are the benefits of supporting UK manufacturers?

There are a lot! Not only is it better for the environment, reducing the carbon footprint that comes as a result of shipping overseas, but it also helps to support local economies, generate jobs in our country and so much more. Find out more over on the Make it British website.

Evo Supplies as a UK Manufacturer

Our wide range of UK-made skates are manufactured in our small but busy workshops and shipped from our warehouse on beautiful Mersea Island, off the coast of North East Essex. Since incorporating the business in 2013, we have grown to become one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of furniture skates, supplying many of the top names in the UK removals and office installations sectors. As well as creating local jobs – 75% of our workforce live on Mersea Island – Evo Supplies are also keen supporters of local community initiatives, including Colchester Food Bank and Secret Hamper’s #ThankYouNHS project.

Evo Supplies were named as one of UK’s Top 100 Small Businesses 2017 and selected as Manufacturing Best Practice Representatives by the Parliamentary Review 2017.

We are proud to supply UK-made products to other UK businesses, making their removals jobs that bit easier with our durable and high-quality skates.

Join Evo Supplies in supporting UK manufacturers this #madeinUKday.
