Great Lakes Region to See $14.6 Billion in Capital and Maintenance Projects Begin in Third-Quarter 2012

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - Jun 6, 2012) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- The Great Lakes region of the United States has struggled to recover from the recession.

While jobs have been slow to return, spending has ramped up again, which will mean more jobs down the road.
