Metroplan Looks Ahead as UK Manufacturing Continues to Grow

With the UK finally beginning to heal from the wounds sustained during the recession, the manufacturing sector looks to be one of the strongest areas for growth. 

The Markit/CIPS Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) for the manufacturing sector recorded a level of 56.7 in January. Although this was down from December's 57.2, it still marks well above average growth in the sector. A reading above 50 indicates expansion. 

Manufacturing accounts for around a tenth of Britain's economy, which expanded by 0.7% in the final three months of last year. This continued expansion in the sector has also meant that employment has increased, rising for a ninth consecutive month. 

At Metroplan over 40% of our products are manufactured at our factory in the UK, maintaining uncompromising levels of quality and value.

Our machinery and operations take products from raw-materials and make them ready for assembly by our skilled team. Our in-house box making machine then creates customized packages for each product.

With more investment into UK manufacturing being encouraged, Metroplan looks ahead to a bright future of creation, innovation and expansion.
