Entech (Poole) Ltd is based in Dorset. I sometimes wonder if Dorset is in the South West or the South, mainly because the evening weather forecast seems to change where Dorset is depending on what channel you watch! I tend to think of it as South West most of the time and I have been looking South West when searching for suitable CNC Turning and CNC Milling companies to discuss the current market conditions. I am always pleasantly surprised by the number I find considering how rural many areas West of Dorset are. Needless to say there are also quite a few to the East in Hampshire but for now I am looking to the South West.

CNC Turning and CNC Milling in the South and South WestI have discovered viewpoints that are a little more mixed than in previous conversations but I am pleased to say most are still reasonably positive. Coronavirus has become a serious concern for everyone and is impacting every market sector with far reaching consequences. The South West appears (currently) less affected than other parts of the country and maybe that goes some way towards the relatively positive views. It is however, clear that there is no quick fix and like most sectors Engineering will have to weather the storm as best as it can whilst we all adjust to a new landscape and businesses start to recover.


Differing viewpoints also depend largely on what has happened to an organisation, why it happened and the current position of the organisation. A position that is usually influenced heavily by the client base but with so many unknowns the future for many clients is also difficult to predict adding another layer of uncertainty into the equation. Look at the aviation sector in the South West for example, there is still profound change happening and sadly quite often it is more difficult news breaking about this particular sector as a return to normal air travel continues to look some way off in the distance.

But despite this there is still a positive view even when reporting a general slow down which is probably because it seems pretty much unavoidable. There is also more thought being given to recovery plans and preparing for a longer period of recovery than was originally considered. I think this too is positive and illustrates how people are now able to look beyond the immediate situation to planning for the future. Like so many across the country, here at Entech we too are preparing for the challenges ahead as best we can.

So, stay safe, look out for each other and follow the government guidelines. Best wishes to you all during this challenging time.
