UK manufacturing growth wears out, as EU customers stays away

On Monday, the 3rd of June 2019, an industry survey had displayed that British manufacturing growth had been weakening over the past couple of months, while major European companies had been found diverting their assets alongside supply chains away ahead of a chaotic & disorderly Brexit.

Besides, according to Monday’s (June 3rd) report of the Make UK manufacturing organization and accountants BDO, outputs and orders had still been growing in United Kingdom, but at a much slower pace than the first quarter of 2019.

None the less, earlier this year, British manufacturing activity had been lifted up substantially, while the nation had also posted its biggest rise in factory output in 20 years, as manufacturers had been rushing on to stockpiling goods in order to avoid a supply chain disruption ahead of a Brexit deadline scheduled at March 29th, however, the second quarter had witnessed a moderation of investment and hiring, while Brexit crisis had been rumbling on amid PM May’s departure and an emerge of Boris Johnson as a potential successor to former PM May, who might have sealed a divorce no-deal divorce with EU, analysts fretted.

Apart from that, addressing to an adrenaline rush on UK factory activity over the first quarter ahead of a March 29th Brexit deadline, Make UK Chief Executive, Stephen Phipson said, “Earlier this year there was clear evidence that industry was on steroids as companies stockpiled. Underneath, however, there is now growing evidence of European companies abandoning UK supply chains”.
