UK Manufacturers, what does the future hold?

Britain’s decision to leave the EU has sent shock waves around the globe and the outlook for the manufacturing and engineering sector is seen by many as being key to the UK’s future economic prosperity.

Moore and Smalley are running their 5th annual Manufacturing & Engineering Survey in conjunction with MHA and Lloyds Commercial Banking. The survey is the largest of its kind and the only one to focus on UK SME manufacturers.

With previous surveys having garnered column inches and attracted attention from Business Innovation and Skills (formerly DTI), the survey provides in-depth insight and analysis and an excellent opportunity for people in the sector to make their voices heard.  Anyone that completes the survey will be entered in to a prize draw to win a Land Rover Discovery off-road experience for three people.

This year commentary comes from two foremost sector leaders; Philippa Oldham from the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and Professor Rajkumar Roy, Head of Manufacturing at Cranfield University, which partners with the likes of NASA, Rolls Royce, BAE Systems and Formula 1.

Ginni Cooper, Head of the Manufacturing Sector for Moore and Smalley says:

“It has never been more important for the sector to share their views.  The survey considers the fundamental key issues post-referendum, including business confidence, skills gaps, funding and sustainability.

Even though leading economists appear to be at a loss as to what the future your views will help our specialist advisors gauge where the sector is and what can be done to support it through what may be an uncertain period.”
