Thriving Amidst Uncertainty: How Just Paper Tubes Overcomes Manufacturing Challenges


In a climate of economic turbulence, Just Paper Tubes stands as a beacon of quality and reliability. This blog aims to shed light on the Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI), a vital metric that measures the health of the manufacturing industry.

The Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) Explained

The Purchasing Managers’ Index is an essential gauge for understanding the economic health of the manufacturing sector. This index is obtained by surveying purchasing managers within manufacturing companies, examining factors such as new orders, supplier deliveries, and inventory levels. A PMI value above 50 signifies expansion, while a figure below 50 indicates contraction.

European PMI Overview (August 2023)

  • Spain: 46.5

  • France: 46.0

  • Italy: 45.4

  • UK: 43.0

  • Germany: 39.1

These figures illuminate that many European countries, including the UK, are facing contractions in their manufacturing sectors. As the Head of Manufacturing at a leading British bank noted:

"August’s data shows the manufacturing sector grappling with a blend of economic challenges, ranging from persistent inflation to curtailed consumer spending."
