“Shops do not make capital investments unless there is a solid reason to expect the investment will pay off,” said Dr. Chris Kuehl, economic analyst for the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association. “This report reflects a far more confident look forward than many had expected given all the uncertainty that has surrounded the economy in recent months.”
