New Economic Predictions Promise Brighter Future for Manufacturing Industry

The National Institute for Economic and Social Research and the Office of National Statistics have this week released figures which indicate that the UK economy seems to be on the road to recovery. The overall economy grew by 0.8% in the three months ending at the end of April, with industrial production rising by 0.7% in March alone, largely as a result of a 1.1% rise in manufacturing. The figures demonstrate that Britain is pulling itself, slowly but surely, out of the recession, to the delight of many businesses which will now be able to operate at their highest potential instead of cutting costs at every turn. The statistics are great news for those who own or operate factories, warehouses or other industrial sites, where signs of growth are most pronounced.

In the wake of the figures, many organisations will be looking to capitalise on the increase and move forward in a positive way. In order to properly do this, improvement to equipment might be a necessity, particularly in workplaces where pallet trucks and manual handling apparatus is used. Increasing the volume of the amount of goods that can be processed and increasing the efficiency with which they pass through the warehouse or factory is a great way to increase productivity in the workplace and make the most of the economic upturn which is easing the strain on Britain's manufacturing industry.

Investing in a new fleet of high-quality hand pallet trucks can have a variety of benefits for those running an industrial unit. If the trucks are intended to replace a fleet of older trucks which are tiring after many years of service, switching to newer models can be a welcome change and can increase the speed and efficiency of a great number of tasks. New trucks can also simply used to expand an existing selection of manual handling equipment; they can increase capacity and increase the amount of goods and products which can be moved at any one time. The improvements to the state of the economy suggest that now could be the best time to make a move and choose one of these options.

The forecast economic growth may also result in some companies wishing to turn their hand to a more specialised service, or else enhance the range of tasks that their fleet of manual handling trucks can carry out. There are many different trucks on the market which have specialist abilities, all of which can add a formidable range of options to a fleet. These include pallet trucks with weighing scales for simpler processing of heavy loads, rough terrain pallet trucks for use in loading bays or outside areas where the ground might not be completely even, and also manual stacker trucks, which remain static and lift pallets to heights of around 3m in order to store them on out-of-reach shelving units. Whichever method an organisation chooses to capitalise on in the wake of the new economic predictions, the future is looking much brighter for those in the UK's manufacturing and warehouses sectors.
