Manufacturing: life after Brexit


Small to medium-sized (SME) manufacturers in Cornwall are being encouraged to have their say on trading beyond Brexit as part of the latest Manufacturing Barometer.

Organised by SWMAS (The South West Manufacturing Advisory Service) and the Manufacturing Growth Programme (MGP), the country’s largest survey of its kind is looking to find out how companies are coping with the early months of life after leaving the EU and the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The findings will be used to inform future Government policy and support, so input from as many SME manufacturers as possible is vital to provide an understanding of current conditions and what is needed to enable future sector growth.

More than 500 businesses are expected to participate this quarter, and if you are an SME manufacturer who would like to get involved, the survey can be accessed here.
