A true picture of how innovative North East manufacturing is touching every aspect of our daily lives.
This specially commissioned infographic, House of Durham, showcases some of the county’s leading manufacturers and reveal for the first time in one image how their products are instrumental in helping us live our lives.

Councillor Neil Foster, cabinet member for Durham County Council for economic regeneration and chairman of the task force, said:
