With strong winter storms and frigid temperature dominating the headlines in Western Pennsylvania recently, we thought we’d share some news that’s a little sunnier. The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia has reported a tremendous surge in regional manufacturing activity – the largest growth that’s been seen since 1993.
Economists, being the dour creatures that they are, warn us not to take these numbers too much to heart. The surge we’ve seen this month may not be repeated next month; any future gains might be smaller. We understand their caution, but we also see reasons to be optimistic. Growth in the manufacturing sector has also been seen in New Jersey, Delaware, and New York. Most importantly, where we’re seeing the manufacturing sector grow, we’re also seeing the number of jobs go up.
