Transportation and Automotive Sectors Drive $8.6 Billion in Future Spending in Great Lakes Region, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - Jun 30, 2011) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- The Great Lakes region of the United States was hit hard by the recession. Tens of thousands of jobs were lost, while hundreds of companies went out of business. Those that remained were cutting expense to the bone, attempting to remain in business through the rough times. In addition, many companies took advantage of the difficult economic situation and relocated their operations from the union-dominated region to other parts of the country, where they could work without having to deal with the restrictions union employment would place on their operations. However, as the economy has recovered, so has the Great Lakes region.

Industrial Info is tracking more than 440 planned transportation and automotive projects in the Great Lakes region worth a combined $5.9 billion. Details of these and other projects are available in Industrial Info's Industrial Manufacturing Industry Database.
