We are what we make: the future of finance in manufacturing
Manufacturing is a vital part of the UK economy, accounting for 12.5% of GDP, 55% of global exports and employs 2.5 million people – that’s about 8% of the workforce.
Manufacturing output has begun to rise slowly. In December, output rose by five times more than expected, up by 1% on the month according to the Office of National Statistics. This small step forward continued in January 2012 and data from February seems to confirm a gentle upward trend.
However, with manufacturing marginally growing, it is more important than ever that cash is available so that businesses can fund growth, and remain competitive in a global marketplace.
The white paper explains the challenges the industry is facing when it comes to cash flow, and addresses how manufacturing should be financing its future.
