On today’s show we are looking at where companies are making major investments. This is happening at time when economic uncertainty and higher cost of capital would suggest that it is not a great time to make major investments in new plant or equipment.

There are two main drivers for investment in new manufacturing in today’s environment.

  1. Expansion of capacity for new and emerging technologies
  2. Global Security of Supply

In my opinion, these two reasons driving investment in new manufacturing.

On today’s show we are going to look at six new factories planned in the United States to see why these factories are being built.
