Welcome to the June edition of Manufacturing Global magazine.

This month, we start the conversation with Edwin Goffard, COO of Corrugated Europe for Smurfit Kappa.

As a global giant in the manufacturing industry, Goffard describes how Smurfit Kappa’s innovative thinking is impacting the packaging industry and supporting its customers.

Next, as the sector tries to meet the demands of Manufacturing 4.0, computer numerical control (CNC) has emerged as a promising market, forecast to reach $100bn by 2025.

Manufacturing Global’s Nell Walker finds out how motorsport is nurturing this manufacturing trend.

Next, as research from Deloitte showing that labour overspending has reached concerning levels, we speak to Jennie Brogrand, Manufacturing Sector Lead for LaborWise, Deloitte to find out more.

Overprocessing is one of the well-documented seven wastes of lean manufacturing.

With this in mind, Manufacturing Global talked to Tim Murray, Associative Director of Newton, to find out how processes can become more efficient in the manufacturing sector.

Next, we turn the spotlight to the top ten electronics manufacturers in the world. In 2016 alone, these organisations generated combined profits of $27.7trn but which manufacturers topped the list?

Finally, we take a look at the most highly-anticipated events that the sector has to offer.

Enjoy the issue!
