At LINIAN, we are incredibly proud of our Made in Britain status, and, we believe that in the face of current challenges, there has never been a more important time to work together, buy local, and support UK companies strengthening the economy. That's why we would like to take a moment to explain what 'Made in Britain' membership means to us.
As a Made in Britain member, we are not only licenced, but proud to use the official collective mark, united by the Made in Britain code of conduct and core principles. Made in Britain members span a wide spectrum of industries including agriculture, electronics, food and drink, office supplies, security, vehicle parts, and more, so you are sure to find UK-manufactured products to suit any project. We believe that there has never been a more important time to SUPPORT LOCAL, and luckily for us, there are some great Glasgow businesses included in the Made in Britain network.
LINIAN is a Glasgow-based company, and all our products are designed and manufactured here in the UK using the best quality materials, providing local employment opportunities, and supporting the British manufacturing industry.
One of the key factors that have helped us through COVID and Brexit, is our robust UK supply chain. By working with other UK suppliers, we maintained our high stock levels, and we were able to continue to supply our products (with next-day delivery) to key infrastructure projects throughout those trying times both domestically and internationally.
Lynne Jhangeer, Global Commercial Director & Co-Founder added:
"This was one of our core founding principles – to develop great products right here in Britain and create opportunities for employment and partner businesses. In an industry where imports make up a huge portion of the supply chain, LINIAN is proud that we can compete on price, service, and most recently availability."
Fundamentally though in 2023, as many businesses start to pay more attention to the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) agendas within their organisations, the Made In Britain mark reassures them that, at LINIAN, we are doing everything we can to shorten supply chains and progress towards even more sustainability and quality in all that we do.
You may have heard last month, LINIAN won the Made in Britain - official Impact Awards for Sustainable packaging project of the year! Shortlisted in this category were LINIAN, Packaging Products Company and PVA HYGIENE LTD.
Led by Edie's Sarah George, the judging panel selected LINIAN as their winner!!
Announcing the award, Sarah said:
"Well done to all three of these teams – their projects are all examples of creative innovation that eliminates problematic plastics, and they are all projects which have significant and scalable impact. It was a close call, but we decided to go for the entry that showed the team who were willing to go above and beyond the initial project, using their learnings to inform a broader assessment of how other packaging formats could be made more sustainable."
We believe that there has never been a more important time to SUPPORT LOCAL and luckily for us, there are some great businesses included in the Made in Britain network, including Henry Winning, a family-owned twine manufacturer, established over 140 years ago alongside fire-rated letterboxes by The Safety Letterbox Co, or Wiring Looms, Cable Forms & Cable Harnesses by A.T. Leads & Looms, Copper piping by Wednesbury Copper Tube and 1000's of other building and construction-related products.
So, whether it's for work or gifts, please look out for the official MADE IN BRITAIN logo. Your purchases will directly support UK manufacturing and the teams that make it happen.
