The Manufacturing Barometer survey is open for SME manufacturers to have their say!
Local manufacturers have a chance to highlight their specific needs, without the influence of larger companies who may present a different outlook, call for the support needed to accelerate recovery and enable future sector growth.
Last quarter, a number of businesses were feeling more optimistic about their future growth prospects. In fact, 65% said they expected future sales to increase. Despite this more positive outlook, growth opportunities often bring challenges, and these have been even more prominent over the past 18 months due to COVID-19 and Brexit.
This quarter’s Barometer survey aims to uncover some of the ways that businesses across the sector are planning to overcome barriers to growth opportunities.
