In July 2011 the Glasgow Herald reported that the pace of growth in the Scottish private sector had improved consistently over the preceding six months.Donald MacRae, chief economist at Bank of Scotland confirmed advances via the BBC:
“June 2011 saw the sixth consecutive month of growth in the Scottish private sector, in both manufacturing and services.”
The latest Purchasing Managers Index from Bank of Scotland shows that services and manufacturing firms made progress in June when the headline output index rose to 53.3, from 52.2 in May. The index has now been showing expansion for six full months.
A Mission for Growth
Scottish firms have weathered the economic storm by maintaining faith in the integrity of products offered, the value of our dedicated workforce, and the ever-present hunger to succeed through passion, quality and innovation.
Leading businesspeople know that whatever the wider context, confidence in one’s offerings is the real prerequisite of business success.
As the economy turns the corner, and growth gathers speed, some firms will accelerate away from the pack; those whose readiness for the recovery is established in their business processes.
The time to move in this regard is now.
As the economic downturn illustrates, manufacturers gain new strength, stability and vigour from being supported in positive partnership with (rather than transcended by) innovative IT.
RAD’s advantage is based on our ability, informed by 14 years of partnership with leading firms, to understand the requirements of our clients.
