U.S. Manufacturing, Defying Naysayers

Wall Street Journal (04/20/12) John Bussey

South Carolina is experiencing a resurgence in manufacturing. Although the new factories are automated and don’t require the number of workers the old ones did, they are employing college-educated engineers and machinists. In March the Institute of Supply Management’s manufacturing index revealed expansion for the 32nd month nationally, and South Carolina is benefiting from that expansion. At least 30 companies have expressed interest in moving to or expanding into the Greenville, SC, area.
