McGladrey Manufacturing and Distribution Monitor® Shows Business Accelerating Despite Concerns About Government Gridlock
Date:11/21/2011

CHICAGO, Nov. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- According to results from the most recent McGladrey Manufacturing and Distribution Monitor®, manufacturers and distributors, particularly those in the durable goods sector, suffered from a number of challenges leading into the fall, including rising energy and raw materials costs, and falling business and consumer sentiment. Still, more than 43 percent of fall Monitor participants say their businesses are thriving and growing.

The Manufacturing and Distribution Monitor provides timely and relevant information to industry leaders. Survey participants are presented with a core group of benchmark questions and a select series of topical questions touching on key management issues. Questions in the fall Monitor focused on the motivations and challenges related to exporting. Responses revealed that 71 percent are exporting to countries outside of the United States, and these export sales make up approximately 16 percent of total company revenue.  

Fall Monitor results showed a 52 percent increase over summer Monitor results in the number of respondents who identified federal government gridlock as a high risk factor for their companies (23 percent in the summer and 35 percent in the fall). Uncertainty over what, if anything, will come out of the Congress's super committee in November likely contributed to this increase. There was a 48 percent increase in the number of respondents who cited the global economy as a high risk factor in the summer (23 percent) and those who cited it in the fall (34 percent). Conversely, the percentage of respondents who cited higher commodities prices as high risk fell 33 percent, from 48 percent in the summer to 32 percent in the fall.
