SWMAS Manufacturing Barometer Spring 2018-19 (Q4)
  • Thank you for taking part in the Manufacturing Barometer, Spring 2018-19 (Q4)

    Raising the profile of UK SME manufacturers

    In taking the time to add your voice to the latest Manufacturing Barometer survey, you are helping to shape the future of business support available to SME manufacturers in the UK.

    You will also help raise the profile of the sector. The Barometer findings, the collective result of senior decision makers' views, attract government and media interest.

    Special focus - Future Sales & Investment

    Amidst the current uncertainty and chaos, we're keen to explore the longer term health of the UK's SME manufacturing sector. In a simple approach, the Barometer asks you to consider the level of sales and investment you anticipate in the next 12, 24 and 36 months.

    Barometer is open until 12noon on Tuesday 23rd April 2019

    The survey should take no more than 5 minutes to complete. Your input may make the difference to the impact the results have regionally and nationally. 

    Thank you for submitting your opinions, I appreciate it's valuable time out of your day. We will email you the concluding report when all the results have been analysed.

    With kind regards,

    Simon Howes 

    CEO, Exelin Group (delivering SWMAS)
