We all know that recessions can be devastating to companies and more so to the people, but there are some good things that come out of it as well.
- Businesses become more creative and efficient
- People become more creative and efficient
- New opportunities appear
- Survival mode kicks in and we make it past the tough times
Manufacturing in the United States has seen plenty of devastating events during this recession, but I see some hope. There are new companies sprouting up in the manufacturing world that are taking advantage of our strengths. Much like the wave of micro brewers, we are seeing micro manufacturing companies. Check out this company (www.local-motors.com), they have the right idea. Of course, I think they should use our KeyCreator 3D Direct CAD software and other engineering tools, but that's not my point.
I see a great future for manufacturing in this country, but we need to work real hard to get there. Let's fight our way outside the normal business habits of today and inspire new and better ways of doing things. Here's a hint, think about humanity and not about profits, and a better world will follow.
