Optimism in the air

Slowly the momentum builds.

300 new jobs generated here, 250 somewhere else. The UK manufacturing industry is fighting back. Either that, or they’ve started wising up to the fact that positive news breeds positive news.

And about time too. Turn back the clocks twelve months and it was failed planning applications, factory closures and desperate appeals for funding. Now don’t get me wrong, those days certainly aren’t yet fully behind us and for many industry participants the challenge of cash flow and basic company economics still present a very real headache, five days a week. Despite this however, the mind set has begun to change. And while the outlook is set to remain very challenging indeed, slowly the optimism has taken root.

And as industry heavyweights such as Alex Simms, Chief Executive of Impax Asset Management start building their profile’s and taking a more proactive approach to communications, it’s only a matter of time before other sectors follow suit.

It’s not the first time I’ve said it but I’ll say it again, 2011 isn’t going to be easy but for those who are in it for the long run, there’s a renewed sense of hope in the air.
