Engineering ups sales by 3.9%
Richard Wilson Engineering industry saw sales increase by 3.9 per cent in the three months to April compared with the previous three months. Turnover was up 4.2 per cent on the same period last year. The figures, from the Office for National Statistics, indicate that the rise was due largely to domestic sales growth during the three month period, which was 5.7 per cent. This compares to just a 1.7 per cent growth in export engineering sales during the same period. Orders active at the end of April fell 1.9 per cent from the February level but were 0.7 per cent higher than at the April 1997 figure.
