    Manufacturing News - August 2019

    28 Aug 2019 | ManufacturingNZ

    It is concerning that the PMI has gone into contraction for the first time in 7 years.

Innovation and productivity improvements are a couple of ways to cope with tough times. See my report below on what industry 4.0 means for manufacturers and check out the IRD calculator below to see if you are eligible for R&D tax credits.

    Manufacturing News - January 2019

    7 Feb 2019 | ManufacturingNZ

    December’s Performance Manufacturing Index (PMI) showed that manufacturing ended the year in decent expansion territory, and new orders were strong, which bodes well for the start of 2019. In this edition, we highlight a lot of good conferences coming up and there should be something for everyone, depending on your business.
