Capital and Maintenance Spending Improves in Northern Illinois, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - Jul 21, 2011) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- The entire Great Lakes region took a massive spending hit throughout the recession. With thousands of Industrial Manufacturing Industry jobs lost during that difficult time, this part of the country, with its reliance on heavy manufacturing and automotive jobs, was hit especially hard. Spending was cut to the bone, as companies attempted to keep costs down while remaining in operation. However, as the economy has improved, so has the spending outlook in this key region. This has been especially true in northern Illinois, where there is a heavy concentration of aerospace-related companies, as well as a significant automotive and heavy manufacturing presence. Looking at what is currently scheduled to begin construction in this area of the country, capital and maintenance project activity is once again on the rise.
