Finally some good news. According to theL.A. Times , manufacturing growth grew for the fifth month in a row since August. In December, the manufacturing index was at 55.9 percent in the United States. So what does it all mean?

We can only hope that this is the beginning of better days for the economy. If the manufacturing sector is on the rise, it also means that demand for goods is also on the rise. Perhaps companies are finally ready to make some purchases. And with all of the money flowing back to the manufacturers, hopefully more jobs will follow.

This article in theL.A. Times got me thinking about recent purchases made by sheet metal companies. Perhaps the sheet metal industry is helping the manufacturing sector by purchasing new cutting machines. Have you invested in any new machines for your sheet metal shop? Is the money starting to flow in so that you can add new equipment?

Let us know if you’ve been able to make any new purchases lately and how they are benefitting your bottom line.
