We recognise the ongoing challenges facing industrialised truck and specialised vehicle manufacturing as a result of Covid-19. The Government has been supporting the economy through loan guarantees, support for exporters, the Bank of England’s Covid Corporate Financing Facility and grants for research and development.

The Government regularly engages with manufacturers and manufacturing trade associations on opportunities to support the growth and competitiveness of manufacturing sectors in the UK.
