Preparing for the Return of American Manufacturing

Manufacturing production in the United States is at an all-time high. Worldwide, the U.S. trails only China in value-added manufacturing. This surge can boost employment opportunities and compensation for blue-collar workers who have been displaced for the better part of the last century. To prepare for the economic resurgence, American manufacturers must invest in growth by taking the following steps: steps:

1. Improve Your Organization: Now is the time for manufacturers to position themselves for organizational growth. According to the Institute for Supply Management, stronger orders and production have been reported across the board from manufacturers in America. Invest in new hires, innovative technology, and expansion during this time of high production demand!
2. Find Opportunities for Manufacturing Growth: Manufacturers focused specifically on growth were twice as likely to find opportunities to expand their business. High-growth manufacturers invest their time in planning through internet research, analytic data, and production assessment. Eliminate bottlenecks in the process and take the time to refine your existing production model.
3. Invest in the Latest Manufacturing Technology: Information technology and robotic systems are at the peak of innovation and manufacturing business intelligence is forever changed by the inventions of today and tomorrow. Embrace the change. Invest where it counts and put money towards new machines, training, and technological research to find innovative ways to improve your production, cut costs, and successfully handle the high demands the manufacturing industry is experiencing!
4. Focus on Customers: When things are going well, we tend to lose our focus. Never forget about the people who come first, the customers. With this resurgence in manufacturing economy, you're positioned to give back to your loyal customer base. Invest in them and they will invest in you. It's that simple!

World Class Industries is taking this opportunity by storm and embracing the comeback of the manufacturing industry with open arms by investing in the research of tomorrow. We encourage our partners to enjoy this prosperous time by looking to improve their business and become a manufacturing growth-seeking company!
