In February 2019, it is hard to predict the changes that the UK exiting the European Union will bring.

Productivity levels have been problematic in the British economy for a number of years now. Why productivity may have slipped compared to other economies is a complex question to which there is no single answer.

If you want to know about the latest developments in both control solutions and automated manufacturing techniques, then read on.
