May/June 2015

There’s plenty to get revved up about inside on the pages of the May-June 2015  issue of Trade & Industry Development, not the least of which is a very insightful feature on the rebound of the automotive industry. What has been the key to this rebound, and what does it mean for site selectors? The answers are awaiting right here.

If the resurgence of the auto industry isn’t uplifting enough for you, surely our feature on supply chains for the aerospace industry will put you into a positive orb. With its heavy dependence on its suppliers, every site selector concerned with this industry will greatly benefit from the knowledge passed along in this article.

Also of great benefit to manufacturers in all industries is where the manufacturing is taking place. As every businessperson is aware, offshore manufacturing gained great popularity, but it is currently in the throes of reversing itself. The most knowledgeable source, The Reshoring Initiative, brings you up to date on what’s happening.

And don’t’ forget our excellent columns: State Spotlights (California, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Wisconsin are featured), Insights (another leader’s perspective on reshoring), Industry Outlooks (Aerospace Industry Association and Original Equipment Suppliers Association), and a special Case Study on Greenbrier Valley, West Virginia, are not to be missed.

Rounding it all out, in our Sites & Programs column, we introduce you to some terrific locations and their businesses that are involved in light manufacturing, and in our Short List column, you’ll learn about some of America’s top sites for business, some of which you may not have been acquainted with before.
