Industrial generators come in useful in a range of scenarios and sometimes manufacturers rely on them to help keep their operations ticking over.Indeed, over coming months a rising number of these firms may take advantage of such power sources.A survey conducted by a manufacturers’ organization the EEF has indicated that activity in the sector may be strong this year.
It released the findings of a survey suggesting that 30 per cent of producers are expecting an improvement in the overall economic conditions in the UK. Meanwhile, the positive trend is predicted to be driven by exports, with half of the firms polled anticipating export sales to end 2013 higher than last year.
Respondents also pointed to demand from emerging markets. Almost half of the companies questioned saw this as important, and this figure rose to nearly two-thirds of large businesses.Commenting on the findings, EEF chief executive Terry Scuoler said: “The past year has been a challenging one for UK manufacturers, but as they look to 2013 there is still the potential for growth in their businesses.”
He added: “Overall there are reasons to be optimistic that manufacturers are well placed to benefit from a combination of growth in new markets and demand for higher value goods; which is exactly what our economy needs.”According to the expert, innovation in recent years will start to “bear fruit” as organizations see opportunities for new product development.To help them meet demand, some firms may make use of the generator services that are available.
