As the UK materials handling showcase, IMHX, gets under way in Birmingham, the industry has received a positive diagnosis from the BITA peak body.
BITA has just released its analysis of market performance with the good news that things seem to be back on track after the drop-off in the wake of the Brexit vote.
"Britain appears to be recovering from the Brexit decision better than previously expected, with indicators from the manufacturing sector, the building industry and consumer spending figures all confounding expectation," says the report.
We'll follow the Birmingham event with a report next week, but it's almost certain that all the talk will be about post-Brexit strategies.
