The manufacturing sector in the United States is experiencing a boom, with output and employment at record highs. Historically, manufacturing has been hard hit in economic downturns. The CNN Business article “America is in a factory boom again. Even a recession may not bring it down this time” attributes the current manufacturing boom to many factors, including increased demand for goods from consumers and businesses, government policies that have supported investment in manufacturing, and a shift in global supply chains.

As a lead producer of fire-and-heat-resistant materials, Auburn Manufacturing supplies products that are used in a wide range of applications, including firefighting gear, aircraft components, industrial equipment, and more.
