Here in Minnesota we will find out soon. It’s that time of year again in Minnesota where Enterprise Minnesota will query hundreds of executives and solicit input from 15 focus groups throughout the state. They will compile the results and release them in both a series of events as well as book form. The State of Manufacturing® is the most comprehensive survey of Minnesota’s manufacturers available. It reveals their perceptions and opinions on the economy and other major issues impacting business.
This year’s survey will be the 10th anniversary of Enterprise Minnesota performing this service. The State of Manufacturing® is a statistically meaningful survey of manufacturing executives that provides the industry, and stakeholders of manufacturing, a comprehensive view of their perceptions and opinions about the issues, challenges, and opportunities that manufacturers face in doing business in Minnesota.
PlastiCert is participating in this year’s survey effort, as they have in the past. PlastiCert President and Owner Craig Porter believes in the survey’s worthiness. He sees the value in being able to provide, not just other manufacturers what their fellow businesspeople think, but it is also an insightful tool for local, regional, state, and even federal legislators to use as they craft and update legislation that will affect the manufacturing business landscape.
Enterprise Minnesota is a consulting organization that helps manufacturing companies become operationally efficient and well positioned to grow profitably.
