We have joined forces with the South West Manufacturing Advisory Service (SWMAS) to deliver a quarterly survey directed at the senior decision makers of SME manufacturing companies across England.
The Manufacturing Barometer maps confidence, trends and opinions from within the manufacturing industry where the findings are used to help lobby local and national Government to ensure that SME manufacturers are receiving more of the right support they need to grow within an ever competitive environment.
The findings from these surveys will be used to help shape the future of support programmes.
Each quarter the survey looks at a ‘special focus’ relating to current news or activities from within the sector and/or economy.
