So here we are in our ‘apocalyptic’, ‘disastrous’ post-Brexit world just waiting for our businesses to collapse and our markets to disintegrate….

Certainly, that’s what I thought was going to happen. As a staunch ‘inny’, I was convinced that the ‘outies’ had it wrong and the uncertainties surrounding ‘Brexit’ would cause a major economic collapse and Intelliconnect, along with most other companies of our size, would go to the wall. Admittedly Brexit hasn’t actually happened yet, but the post-referendum apocalypse which many (including myself) predicted has not occurred.

For U.K. component and cable assembly manufacturers, the future is looking extremely bright and the reasons are not just about us leaving the E.U.

U.K. consumers (and OEMs) are becoming much more U.K.-centric in their engineering and purchasing decisions. Re-shoring is growing apace, and U.K. manufacturers are responding to demands with ever more flexible and low-cost products.
