State of Manufacturing®

For the second time this year, our national pollster interviewed over 500 manufacturing executives representing a proportional mix of geographic locations, size and type of manufacturer from across the state. He also analyzed the data by the six initiative foundation regions to provide further context and greater local insight. Our initial survey from this year took place in March.
