Shelley Bullman, joint administrator at Moorfields Corporate Recovery, said: “We have seen a number of manufacturing businesses suffer in 2012 following difficulties in the eurozone. As a result the market suffered a period of decline. Unexpectedly the Markit/CIPS UK Manufacturing PMI(1) index showed an expansion in December 2012 leaving the industry optimistic about 2013.”
