20th May 2014

From the latest DNCC Member’s Briefing....

Some very interesting findings published from The Annual Manufacturing Report 2014....

 “Manufacturers have an increased level of optimism around the UK economy with 94% of respondents reporting they are “very” or “quite optimistic” for the year ahead, according to the latest Annual Manufacturing Report.

Nine out of ten companies indicated that they believe German manufacturers receive more support from their government than companies in the UK while nearly six out of ten (58%) said they invested more in machinery/machine tools in the past financial year than in the previous year. A little under seven out of ten (67%) said they plan to invest in IT in the next 12 months while 68% provide accredited training to less than one in ten of their workers”
