January 2022 Issue

Be Ready... Planning for the Takeoff. Are you ready for all that 2022 promises? Despite ongoing workforce issues and supply chain hiccups, the manufacturing sector continues to thrive. "We took off last summer and we are about 16 months into what is generally a 36-to-37-month manufacturing expansion," said Timothy R. Fiore, CPSM, C.P.M., chair of the manufacturing business survey committee for the Institute of Supply Management (ISM). The fabricated metal products sector is among the top six U.S. manufacturing industries tracked by ISM each month, comprising 6.1 percent of the manufacturing economy. The sector's PMI has been extremely healthy since September 2020; above 60 percent in October. (Above 50 percent indicates a general expansion.) Find out where Fiore and other manufacturing industry leaders believe opportunities exist in 2022.
