The U.S. Manufacturing Technology Orders report for November is out, and the numbers are up for the month, though still down for the year.
Order values increased 2.2% across the board compared to October, with the biggest industry investment in appliances, automotive, computer and electronics, and HVAC, a trickle-down effect, according to the Association for Manufacturing Technology, of the year’s new housing starts. The year-to-date orders are down 17.2% from the same point in 2014.
