Zenoot is a digital home for UK manufacturing content, with a daily feed of manufacturing news, opinions, interviews and inspiring case studies, highlighting the positivity and optimism of our vibrant, diverse and world-class British manufacturing sector.

Our goal is simply to inspire growth within the sector by sharing insight and stories of how manufacturers have grown, how they have embraced new technology, are supporting the future talent joining the industry or are becoming more productive. We believe manufacturers are ardent researchers, so help to play a part in their success by providing an easy to navigate platform that helps them find practical ways to adapt and improve the competitiveness of their business – along with thoughts, reports and expertise to inspire and inform.

We regularly see negative news reported in the mainstream media, yet good news itself is not in short supply. Many success stories just go untold. From large primes to SMEs, we champion the very best of UK manufacturing and bring positive news to the front of our pages, alongside positive articles of manufacturers investing, growing and becoming more efficient.

Together with helping manufacturers tell their stories, we also help our partners increase awareness of how they are supporting the sector and advise them on how best to grow.

We support Make UK with its commitment to helping manufacturers across the country meet their objectives and goals.


Lloyds Bank has a long history with the manufacturing sector and continues to be committed to support UK manufacturers, from Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to listed Tier 1 (Original Equipment Manufacturers) OEM’s.

We continue to invest and develop partnerships in the sector, including our multi-million pound sponsorship of the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC). Since 2014, our partnership with the MTC has helped to train thousands of graduates, apprentices and engineers and supported hundreds of SMEs to access productivity and sustainability support. The partnership continues to evolve as we support on emerging challenges such as the journey to Net Zero, ongoing skills shortages in the sector and looking at the future of manufacturing with digital and technology adoption. Our sector expertise and strong product offering means that we bank 1 in 5 SME manufacturers in the UK and continue to support thousands of manufacturers to adapt and grow during challenging times.

Our commitment and team support spans across the manufacturing supply chain to the largest listed OEM’s, supported by a highly experienced Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) team for the sector. Our manufacturing sector and ESG teams support businesses across the UK, providing insights and learnings to clients to inform their green strategies. The team combines deep experience in structuring sustainable finance products across many sectors with expertise and insights to help clients make the right decisions for their firms and the environment. In 2022, the Group provided £7.9 billion of green funding and sustainability linked finance to corporate and institutional customers.
