The Pioneer Safety Group, of which Baldwin and Francis is a member, is pleased to announce that it has joined the Made in Britain initiative.

Made in Britain is a not-for-profit organisation that supports British manufacturers under a single, registered collective mark. The mark represents a standard of quality and unity for the British manufacturing sector within the UK and around the world.

The organisation works closely with the UK government and other groups to support skilled jobs and encourage creativity and sustainable growth. It campaigns all year round for British manufacturing.

The Made in Britain suite of marks are used by more than 1000 businesses in a number of industries ranging from large-scale vehicle manufacturers to small independent textile manufactures. The collective mark is a clear indicator of the diversity of British manufacturing.
