According to the UK Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index, compiled by Markit and the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, there was a "modest" rebound in production in June.
The PMI stood at 51.3, which indicates further growth, while there was another rise in the number of staff being taken on, which could include those in sales jobs.
Rob Dobson, senior economist at Markit and author of the report, commented: "Input price and supply-chain pressures eased noticeably in June, which will be a welcome development for manufacturers and will also add weight to the Bank of England's monetary belief that the current spike in inflationary pressures will prove transitory."
It comes after a survey carried out by Zurich found that optimism among the country's manufacturers is continuing to increase, with four in five organisations now more confident about the future of the industry and the UK economy than they were a year ago.
