KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Dr. Brian Long’s monthly survey of the health of the local economy as viewed from the factory floor continues to see positive growth, in fact better numbers than the rest of the nation.
His survey from May shows nothing but positive numbers for sales, new orders, employment and inventories. He says it’s the best report he has put together in two years.
He says the main driving force behind the growth continues to be the auto industry’s recovery. Dr. Long says his organization’s national survey shows much flatter numbers.
