Julian Baseley, chairman of British Made for Quality, said there was a slowdown in orders from Europe over the last quarter, but this is unlikely to last much longer and the sector will soon see a boost.
"Looking forward, we see a slow start to 2012 but [it will] begin to pick up from February. Our order book for February is already pretty full and we have some good expectations for March," he commented.
Mr Baseley said that Europe is still slow but the pick-up from other areas is "more than compensating", which will sustain the creation of new jobs to cope with increasing demand.
He added that the country's manufacturers are in a much better situation than a lot of firms in other countries' industries, as businesses are selling to many companies outside of the eurozone.
