Carbon consultancy welcomes UK manufacturing growth
The UK manufacturing sector has recorded the ninth consecutive month of strong output growth, according to a study released earlier this month.
These rates of growth in production and new orders are among the highest in the 22-year Purchasing Manager’s Index (PMI) survey history. The figures suggest that, despite a slight dip in December, this improvement should continue into 2014.
The sector has also seen a rise in jobs since May and is predicted to continue to contribute positively to the economic market recovery. At Concept Energy Solutions, specialists in energy management and energy feasibility studies, we are pleased to see this growth which suggests that low-carbon manufacturing could provide further opportunities for progress.
Peter Stockwell, Director, says: “Our experience as a carbon consultancy over the past few years has shown us the growing demand for increased energy efficiency in the industrial sector. With immense potential for further increases to UK manufacturing output, it seems sensible continue exploring this avenue.”
