Friday Brief

Good morning and welcome to this week’s Friday Brief.

We’ll start this week with a quick reminder that the MTA Business Survey for September is still open for your replies at www.mta.org.uk/mta-business-survey-sep17 - we will be closing this early next week, but there is still time to get your return back if you have not done so already.

With MACH 2018 just around the corner we look back on some of the results from MACH 2016 and how exhibiting at the UK’s premier manufacturing technologies showcase can really boost your business. Find out more in the story below and if you’re yet to book a stand at next year’s show contact the MTA’s Head of Sales Samantha Jones at sjones@mta.org.uk for more information.

As part of the Brexit process the MTA has been approached by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to provide case studies to enable Government to understand as many of the effects as possible and to help them to build the case for a Brexit deal that works for UK businesses. If you’d like to take part you can find out more in the story below but please also contact Paul O’Donnell, the MTA’s Head of External Affairs, at podonnell@mta.org.uk.

MTA Education & Development Coordinator Laura Pickering & PR & Comms Executive Tom Lane attended “Training the Next Generation of Designers and Engineers” at the House of Commons on Thursday. Find out more about the event below.

The UK manufacturing output numbers published earlier this week by the ONS were broadly positive at the level of the sectors, sub-sectors and most of the industries.  The automotive industry continues to recover from the model changes that caused a dip in output earlier in the year and it is back to its recent record high levels, while the aerospace industry is still flying (sorry, pun entirely intended!).  The industrial picture at the European level is also showing a strong performance with the capital goods industries leading the way in most of the comparisons, both for the Euro-zone and the EU28 areas.  Our other item this week takes a very brief look at some complex and detailed data on productivity in the UK and its international comparisons.

That’s all for this week, we’ll be back next Friday with more industry news, until then have a great weekend from everyone at the MTA.

ECONOMIC DATA THIS WEEK

ECONOMIC DATA THIS WEEK

UK Manufacturing Output, August 2017:  The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is working its way through a re-basing of the UK economic data to 2015;  in some cases, this is generating changes in the picture, although apart from changing the index numbers to the new base year, the overall view of manufacturing and its industries has not altered significantly.

Training the Next Generation of Designers and Engineers

Training the Next Generation of Designers and Engineers

MTA Education & Development Coordinator Laura Pickering & PR & Comms Executive Tom Lane attended “Training the Next Generation of Designers and Engineers” at the House of Commons on Thursday.

EURIS BEIS company visits

EURIS BEIS company visits

This is an opportunity for companies to register for an interview with BEIS (Dept for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy) to gather case studies on the impact of Brexit on industry. You will find attached some details about the initiative and a link to register your interest – https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/EURISregister.

NOTE: You do not need to be able to answer all of the questions in the attachment, it is useful feedback for BEIS to know where there is a lack of experience.
