More than green shoots this time?

I believe it is becoming increasingly apparent that due to the macro-economic and geopolitical factors of these ever-changing times, the only guarantee going forward is that businesses will need to be prepared to constantly face new challenges.  Whilst our politicians are trying to smooth our exit from the EU, it appears that large companies are keeping the faith and retaining their UK facilities.

It is pleasing to note that in quite a few different areas – from tooling suppliers and manufacturers to mould toolmakers and subcontract engineering companies – the work seems to be returning and the orders are getting larger.  Every time I visit the NEC in Birmingham, I’m amazed by the number of car-transporters full of Range Rovers rolling out of the factory gates.

How can we ensure this is a sustainable recovery?  I really do believe that by taking advantage of the skills and experience of SMEs, and with strong communication throughout supply chains; lead times and quality can be improved at the right price.  See the article on our website blog page - Trying to Help A Customer for a Case Study to see how we have been working with a major Aerospace OEM.
