The power and possibilities of the 4th industrial revolution
Oak Universe provides manufacturing companies with Funding and Expertise to unleash the power and possibilities of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
The fourth industrial revolution is a way for manufacturers to digitalize their production and distribution capabilities
European countries have largely chosen to offshore manufacturing activities in favour of low-cost countries since the 1980s. Increases in the economic liberalisation and international trade in developing countries presented attractive low-cost markets to produce manufactured goods, such as electronics
Landscape of Electronics Manufacturing

High Volume Manufacturing

Routes to Reindustrilalisation

Every revolution has been about resources, whether human or material. We believe the 4th industrial revolution has the power to reverse the damage caused by the previous industrial revolutions. It’s time to rethink capitalism, be more transparent and do more with less resources.
