Are we heading into a manufacturing resurgence?
Maybe so, according to a recently released industry report.
The Aspen Institute and the Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation (MAPI) study suggests that U.S. manufacturing is showing signs of a resurgence that by 2025 would lead to the first surplus in the nation’s goods and services balance of trade since 1975.
The report suggests that U.S. manufacturing could experience a resurgence that will ensure new innovation and increased productivity.

For many manufacturing companies, now is the time to optimize business process improvement and invest in new technologies.
Our ERP consulting team is witnessing this shift as we talk to manufacturers in a variety of sectors, including process manufacturing.
