Iowa Manufacturers Expect Strong Start to New Year
15 Jan 2021
They’re the words Iowa manufacturers have been waiting all year to hear: “Things are looking up.”
Iowa manufacturers expect increased sales, employment and capital investments in the first quarter (January-March), according to the results of the latest ABI Quarterly Iowa Business Survey.
“The survey results are incredibly positive for Iowa’s economy,” said ABI President Mike Ralston. “This is a great way to build momentum as we begin the new year.”
Approximately half of ABI’s 1,500 member companies are manufacturers. The association represents nearly every industry in Iowa.
