Strong outlook for manufacturing sector

Activity in the UK manufacturing sector remained solid in May, and output is expected to rise strongly in the next three months, the latest CBI Industrial Trends Survey shows.

Output volumes continued to grow at the same rate as in the previous two months, and with stronger growth anticipated for the coming quarter.

The survey of 437 manufacturers found that total order books remained well above the long-run average. Export orders fell below normal, mainly driven by the chemicals and automotive sectors, but remained strong by historical standards.

Do you agree with the CBI assessment?

I am continuing to see strong growth across the sectors I coach. Are you feeling the effect as the whole supply chain gets the bounce from larger businesses?

Business is difficult.

  • Whether you have challenges with time management
  • Whether you cringe at the thought of really looking at your finances
  • Or worse still, a business owner who thinks a cash forecast is attained by simply looking at your bank balance
  • Or you just want to understand what are the real keys to managing numbers in any business


Many of the business owners I meet ask me to help them find more time in the day.

  • They never planned to work over 50 hours a week but many work even longer
  • I can’t get good people, it’s just easier and quicker to do the job yourself!

I’ve heard all the reasons.
