Manufacturing News

There are lots of factors that impact manufacturing in the United States, so it is important to stay informed, whatever your industry. The Wiser daily manufacturing news email will help you do that just that. The influences that affect manufacturing include the rate of economic growth in developing countries like China; the cost of oil; globally significant events like natural disasters or war; advances in technology; government policy; and more. The term manufacturing covers any company involved in the production of goods. It includes small businesses with a handful of employees up to major corporations, and it exists in a range of industries. It is in a state of change - since the industrial revolution manufacturing has constantly evolved. It is therefore common to see once thriving companies shut down manufacturing because of weakening consumer demand, or companies moving manufacturing to other parts of the world because of cost.
