Minnesota’s small- and medium-sized manufacturers are incredibly optimistic about the prospects of their companies over the coming year according to the ninth annual State of Manufacturing® survey. These findings, coupled with shrinking concerns about the global economy, suggest 2017 will be a year of growth for the state’s manufacturing industry. 

“At the time the survey was taken in March, it was clear that Minnesota’s manufacturers are optimistic about the economy and their companies’ growth potential,” said Bob Kill, Enterprise Minnesota president and CEO. “Manufacturers preside over a job-creating engine that feeds the economic vitality of so many communities across the state.”
