The rate of expansion in new business was the sharpest in just over two years, with export orders rising the most since June of 2018.

Subsequently, manufacturers increased their workforce numbers, albeit only fractionally. Meanwhile, firms were less upbeat regarding the outlook for output over the coming 12 months, with the degree of confidence slipping to a four-month low.
