A lot has been written about investment holding its own within commercial projects, release of brown site for housing and construction services (albeit at dwindling margins).  

Since June I have heard little by way of how manufacturing is coping.  

With the weakening of the pound over recent months, the UK has been seen as ripe for foreign investment.  Aside from commercial development, this seems to have bled its way through to manufacturing.  

Lets just hope the dust settles over the next few months and this trend continues.
