Tags: Business Information, Small Business, Risk Management
This special report offers a business credit overview on the U.S. manufacturing industry for Q1 2014.
The U.S. economy got off to a rocky start in Q1 2014 mostly due to record-setting low temperatures throughout much of the South, Northeast and Midwest. While some industries were able to weather the cold, the manufacturing sector was not immune. The manufacturing industry, driven primarily by auto sales, was heavily impacted by the Polar Vortex. Fortunately, winter is now in the rearview mirror, and we see a smooth road ahead for the rest of 2014.
