    • Key changes
      • Changes in location away from the old coalfield sites where coal was used to power traditional industries
      • Many of the traditional heavy manufacturing industries such as steel and iron have declined in importance and been replaced with light assembly manufacturing industries, such as electronics.
      • Changes in technology have resulted in many of the old traditional methods of production being overtaken by robots and computer controlled production. This has resulted in a reduction in the labour force.
      • A large number of overseas manufactures have been attracted to the UK, particularly in areas offering government assistance.
      • There has been an overall decline in the numbers employed in manufacturing as the UK moves to a more tertiary – based economy.
