Our 2015 Manufacturing survey opens next week

Posted On June 18, 2015 By mhauk

This year we have teamed up with Lloyds Bank for our annual Manufacturing and Engineering Survey.

The survey will open next week. We will focus on 7 core areas; the business as a whole, your post-election wish list and views concerning the EU referendum, recruitment and skills, funding, energy & sustainability.

The survey will be sent to thousands of manufacturers and engineers across the UK within our Manufacturing sector. We will look at the anonymised data and use it to summarise trends, identify opportunities and threats for manufacturers and look at other ways in which we can help our manufacturing clients. Where appropriate, we will also be putting pressure on the government to take more action to support manufacturers and engineers.

As specialist advisers to the sector, we want to understand views and concerns for the upcoming year. Once the data has been analysed we will release a full report detailing the findings with commentary from the prestigious WMG – the Manufacturing Group at the University of Warwick and from Philippa Oldham CEng MIMechE, Head of Transport and Manufacturing at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

Amongst other things, last year’s survey showed respondents predicting that they would see growth in 2015 but having concerns over a developing skills gap. You can read the full 2014 Survey report here.
