SE Wisconsin manufacturing economy continues growth

by

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - The manufacturing economy continued its moderate growth this month in southeast Wisconsin.

That’s according to an index from Marquette University and the Milwaukee chapter of the Institute for Supply Management.

The seasonally-adjusted index rated the area’s factory climate at 57.7 for May. That’s up from 52.9 in April. Anything above 50 indicates general growth, while a rating below 50 shows declines.

The report said manufacturing employment kept growing, with a solid index figure of 63 – up from 61.4 last month.

Factory orders also had a slightly better showing. The report says some Milwaukee area firms are getting new orders in spurts – and it makes it hard to plan production schedules.
