Friday Brief

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

We have been made aware that, once again, a number of companies, based abroad, have been offering for sale information purporting to be the MACH 2018 visitor attendee list. We would like to warn all our exhibitors/members that this data is not the genuine information compiled at the show.

As Brexit negotiations pick up pace, you are warmly invited to an exclusive and free conference hosted by EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation: Making Brexit Work – Preparing Manufacturers for Brexit.

The May edition of the MTA Business Survey has just been launched and we hope that as many MTA members as possible will participate.  The survey gives useful trend data about the manufacturing technology sector to place alongside other data, so it is important that we get a true reflection of the trends in our sector.  You can access the on-line form at www.mta.org.uk/mta-business-survey-may18 - we look forward to hearing from you.

Orgalime of whom the MTA are members Annual Report is now available online so please see the story below with information on how to read the report.

Citation MTA associate members would like to invite MTA members to attend a Citation business briefing. Join their experts who will discuss the latest HR and Health & Safety updates and advice to support you and your business. To find out about the nearest event to you please see within the Brief.

After our publishing deadline last week, the ONS released an update on the GDP figures for the UK economy which confirmed the marginal growth rate that was recorded;  more importantly, perhaps, they also released the preliminary investment figures which showed that although capital spending by manufacturing overall continues to grow, there was a small downturn in the figure for the Engineering & Vehicles sub-sector (but it was still stronger than in the 1st period of 2017).  The European Commissions track of industrial confidence edged down again, although this was a balance between a fall in production expectations and a rise in order books (which seems a strange combination) and the overall level remains high by historical standards.  Finally in this section we also note the availability of the latest Contract Price Adjustment indices from BEAMA and the announcement of recipients of Regional Selective Assistance (RSA) grants in Scotland (the only part of the UK still to have this system of business support).

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

Fraud Warning- MACH 2018 Attendees Lists

Fraud Warning- MACH 2018 Attendees Lists

We have been made aware that, once again, a number of companies, based abroad, have been offering for sale information purporting to be the MACH 2018 visitor attendee list. We would like to warn all our exhibitors/members that this data is not the genuine information compiled at the show.

The MTA never makes the MACH attendee list available for sale or allows it to be sold on by third party organisations.

We recommend that you disregard all correspondence from these companies and if you have any questions or concerns please contact the MTA directly.

Economic Data This Week

Economic Data This Week

UK GDP and Business Investment, 1st Quarter 2018:  In the 2nd estimate of UK GDP published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) at the end of last week, the glacial pace of growth in the economy was confirmed, with an improvement of just +0.1% compared to the final quarter of 2017;  the annualised growth rate of +1.2% was also unchanged from the preliminary figures.

Invitation to an EEF Brexit Roadshow
