Construction Industry Experiences Sudden Upturn – Business Insurance
The upturn in the construction sector has increased in the last month according to new figures.
The figures show increased rates of activity for new orders and employment during June.
The figures are taken from the Ulster Bank’s Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI). The index provides a snapshot of economic performance. It recorded the fastest increase in construction activity for three months.
The survey did note that the returns were made pre-Brexit, so did not take account of the result
However, the month’s survey demonstrates that firms are strongly optimistic about the coming year.
