Over the past several months we\u2019ve seen positive growth across manufacturing industries. Not to mention the growth we\u2019ve all been seeing in\u00a0consumer confidence\u00a0\u2013 a direct correlation to consumer spending. This is due in part to steady gains in nationwide employment rates, an increase in disposable income, and the value of the housing market continuing to improve.This continued increase in confidence of the American public can be seen in how businesses are once again investing in equipment, training, new software, and industrial structures. Some of the change in the manufacturing industry is a direct result of President Trump\u2019s\u00a0deregulation\u00a0of manufacturing industries and his drive to lower taxes.We are also seeing other signs of\u00a0positive growth\u00a0in the manufacturing industry, such as growing demand for equipment in the mining and construction industries. In September, the Institute for Supply Management hit its highest mark gauging manufacturing activity since 2004. There was also a boost in profits and cash flow for large companies such as Boeing Co.According to Bloomberg Markets, U.S. growth is\u00a0above what was forecasted\u00a0and came in recently at three percent, which was a solid gain, especially with two parts of the country that experienced devastating hurricanes and now, rebuilding initiatives from the destruction.All of the work and growth we\u2019ve been seeing across the sectors creates a robust outlook for 2018 and the manufacturing industry as a whole.As an\u00a0industrial contractor\u00a0for all types of industrial projects, we\u2019re looking forward to the New Year with confidence.
