Working hand in hand with the UK manufacturing sector, Haughton Design is able to provide a clear insight into the industry. Managing Director, David Mills, shares his thoughts about the current state of manufacturing.

“I am confident that the manufacturing industry is growing strongly

“It appears that there is an inconsistent message about the state of the manufacturing industry:

 “UK manufacturing in ‘worst performance for three years”

(BBC, 1st June)

“CBI survey shows manufacturers weakly optimistic at best”

(The Guardian, 21st June)

“Manufacturers boost recovery hopes”

(Independent, 21st June)
Working so closely with the UK manufacturing industry, I am amazed that there can be any doubt of the strength of the sector. This month I had the privilege of visiting several local manufacturers including Pelloby and KMF. I was amazed at the level of demand they were receiving and the level of output generated.
In the midst of recession manufacturing companies have been innovative and focused on exploiting needs of a particular sector. New product development can be an effective tool to assist in this type of market development.
Judging by this month I am confident that the manufacturing industry is growing strongly. Exploiting new product ideas can encourage further growth, and support the UK economy.”
