Supporting the makers of the world

Industry & manufacturing

Manufacturing and industrial (M&I) organizations remain the backbone of our economy. Yet, companies that make things have never faced a more challenging business environment. Workforce shortages, supply chain disruptions, regulation and climate change all have an impact on where, how and when you can do business. These issues compel businesses to engage in new ways with stakeholders ranging from policy makers and regulators to labor unions and climate activists — and of course, customers.

Weber Shandwick understands the array of challenges that confront the M&I sector every day. We offer expert counsel in corporate reputation, public affairs, employee engagement, crisis management, social impact, brand marketing and a host of other specialties. We develop custom programs to guide companies through these obstacles and build effective relationships with the people who are critical to their success.
