Industry News: New Study Finds U.S. Manufacturing Hit Record Pace in 2015
Last year was a great year for UCEC, and it turns out it was a record year, too, for U.S. manufacturers as a whole. According to a new study by the U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Commerce, 2015 was a record production year.
As ResourceMFG reports, domestic manufacturers are creating more products and streamlining processes with an end result of faster, safer production. We've seen the same results here at UCEC as we strive to improve processes and adopt new technologies.
“Implementing new technologies has not only increased productivity on our shop floor, but created learning opportunities and new skillsets for our employees," says UCEC's VP of Business Operations Evan Coulter.
The blog post points to the need for skilled manufacturing workers in the U.S. who can adapt and move into more technical roles which offer better opportunities and higher pay. This aligns with UCEC's philosophy of on-the-job training coupled with career advancement. “When we recruit and hire a person in 2016, we want a person who already knows that their job will be significantly different in 2020, and embraces the opportunity to grow and learn new technology," says UCEC CEO and President Mark Inboden.
