News on UK Manufacturing
Some good and bad news for British Manufacturing
The good news is Nissan's continuing commitment to building cars in UK including their new model which should result in more jobs. Also in the steel industry the Blast furnace at Redcar has been restarted by Tata steel. It had been closed since 2009.
The bad news concerns Aquascutum in administration they will probably close their factory in Corby if a buyer cannot be found. Aquascutum opened its first factory in Kettering in 1909, and continued to manufacture garments, including its signature raincoats, at the Corby plant.
The move comes as British retailers show fresh interest in manufacturing in the UK, against the backdrop of rising transport costs and escalating wages in China.
