Brexit plan 'unclear' for local industry

Local industry took hit following Leave vote

A lack of concrete strategy following the Brexit announcement caused an initial financial dip for one Manx manufacturer, who says business has since improved.  

Dr Helmut Kessler is the managing director of Manx Precision Optics, which provides custom components to international production giants.

Earlier this week the Manx government released its first major report since the referendum, updating residents and the private sector on its position in the UK/EU divorce process.

Areas of the Island's economy like agriculture, fisheries and manufacturing are expected to be hit hardest once Article 50 is triggered. 

Manx Radio met Dr Kessler in his factory near Ronaldsway Airport, where he explained how his business has been affected by the uncertainty.
