Advanced Manufacturing

We’re passionate about working with organisations in manufacturing and associated sectors, supporting clients in their work to power infrastructure, economies, jobs and communities.

With many years of experience in this arena, Freshfield’s advanced manufacturing team is a trusted partner to a diverse range of organisations across sectors including aerospace, cabling, coatings, food and beverage and materials testing.

Sectors we specialise in


With in-depth knowledge of the aerospace industry, our aerospace PR specialists work with client partners of varying sizes, helping them build their brands and meaningful relationships. Our client experience includes aerospace manufacturing and engineering companies, professional bodies and service providers to the aviation sector.

As advisers to the North West Aerospace Alliance – with more than 750 member companies – we are in the heart of the aviation community and have developed a deep understanding of the issues facing the sector.

Our impactful work in the aerospace engineering sector includes running PR and communications programmes to showcase products, technologies and capabilities, and media relations support for major international aerospace events, including the Paris Air Show and the Farnborough International Air Show. We also have a dedicated team of brand, design and digital specialists.


The cabling industry is playing a crucial role in the development of sustainable, safe buildings across major cities, and our specialist team understands the major environmental and business challenges it faces as it seeks to achieve its goals.

Our work in these markets communicates the important role played by the experts in cabling – including fire performance cabling – and how they help to ensure the safety of people moving about in our buildings, on public transport and at sea.

We also highlight best practice and compliance to the highest industry standards by our clients, helping to broker relationships with leading industry bodies.

We support our clients to highlight major issues in the built environment, rail, defence and industrial cabling markets.

We run multi-territory programmes covering media relations, social media, events and direct engagement with our clients’ customers, partners and industry bodies, helping build awareness, trust and engagement.


On behalf of our clients in the coatings and protection sector, we communicate how their experts use science and technology to develop products which ultimately help protect lives and buildings.

Working in partnership with our clients, we co-create campaigns across the UK and the EMEA region which are relevant to the challenges facing the sector, whether reducing the carbon footprint, environmental considerations around harmful chemicals, the difficulties presented by long supply chains and health and safety.

Through our relationships with key sector media in coatings, infrastructure, the built environment and fire safety, we run high impact campaigns involving industry thought-leaders, helping boost the brand credentials and reputation of our clients and their teams.

Food and Beverage Manufacturing

From launching a new product, generating new partnerships or building an online and influential fanbase, our wide range of capabilities help food and beverage manufacturing organisations achieve their goals.

As specialists in the food and beverage manufacturing sector, we keep track of the rapidly shifting changes in new technology, food product development, alternative sources of food and consumer lifestyle-driven demand to ensure our content is relevant to influence the audiences we are targeting.

We showcase our clients’ brand credentials through news, case studies, insights and online campaigns, while highlighting industry trends around raw materials, food manufacturing methods and emerging ingredients.

To stand out from the competition in a highly challenging market, we bring the products to life with topical and relevant content and dynamic video and photography to make impact with the media, influencers, bloggers, partners and stakeholders.

Materials and Product Testing

We have extensive experience of working with materials and product testing organisations across the UK and in Europe.

This has included programmes in sectors as diverse as aerospace, fire performance, automotive and oil and gas but with the common purpose of communicating the impact of the work they undertake in these fields.

We run communications programmes to highlight the product testing and certification of both passive and active fire products and systems through to the inspection, commissioning and certification of completed building projects.

Our thought leadership campaigns across the UK and Europe span our full capabilities including media relations, content, marketing collateral, partnership marketing and events.

Why we are passionate about these sectors

Through our work and relationships, we’re fortunate to be able to see the impact these organisations  have on our infrastructures, economies, communities, skills and jobs. It’s also interesting and great to see many organisations taking a lead in driving more sustainable manufacturing processes in their industries. There is huge investment being made by many of our clients.

This is why we are proud to be the partner of choice for many organisations in key advanced manufacturing sectors across the UK and Europe.
