PMI, UK and Euro-zone, May 2018:  The UK manufacturing sector Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) edged up slightly, triggering a round of “good news” headlines;  however, the detailed results are still something of a mixed bag.  The most important point is that despite falling from the peak we saw last November, the UK manufacturing PMI remains firmly in positive territory.

GDPR Update... things you need to know ‘GDPR’ replaces the existing data protection directive that was introduced in 1998 and has been created by the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission to strengthen and unify data protection for all EU residents. GDPR addresses data protection rules for personal data export outside of the EU.

It will come into force for all organisations that handle the data of EU residents from the 25th of May 2018.

CBI Industrial Trends Survey, May 2018:  The latest results from the CBI survey suggest that manufacturing is, to use their headline, “losing steam”;  however, this only points to a levelling off of growth and the sector is still at a high level by historical standards.

Machine Tools Forum

The presentation will involve the participation of Top Italian Manufacturers, the Italian and British academic world, end users, importers, distributors, specifiers of metalworking machinery and robotics with a focus on automotive, aerospace, composite materials, shipbuilding, and healthcare sectors.
