LANSING, MI (WTVB) - Coming away from the great recession, Michigan has led the nation in manufacturing growth and the country seems to be feeding off the improvement. U.S. manufacturing is moving at its fastest pace in the last two years.  The latest figures from the Institute for Supply Management show last month was the best since June of 2011.  Government budget cuts had hurt the industry in the early part of the year, but orders have been up in recent months.  New orders are also at their highest level in two years.
