Hello and welcome to the first issue of Manufacturing Today for 2024 ! Ongoing market challenges mean the manufacturers must come up with strategies to increase their competitiveness and efficiency as well as scale up production . Our contributors offer their expert opinions on topics including upcoming trends for 2024 , sustainable manufacturing and innovation , as well as a specific look at scaling up battery manufacturing production .

I am also excited to introduce our first Women in Manufacturing section . Spearheaded by our own Annabelle Crook , MT delves into diversity and how it can foster long-term value creation . Our main interview with Sonita Lontoh provides a perspective not just on her own career progression , but also the importance of developing a diverse workforce and the benefits it can bring . Supported by five other female perspectives , this section makes a fascinating read .
