“Manufacturers Strapping in for a Tumultuous Ride”

April 20, 2020 – The 2020 State of Manufacturing® Survey Shows an Immediate COVID-19 Reaction.

2020欧洲杯外围APPMany of you may know that COVID-19 forced Enterprise Minnesota to postpone the June public release of our annual State of Manufacturing® data. But when we made that decision, it was too late to cancel the survey itself. In fact, pollster Rob Autry had already completed the research.

We at first thought the survey data might be skewed by the fact that interviews were conducted before and after President Trump’s National Emergency Declaration (COVID-19) on March 13th. We then realized that Rob’s survey captured an almost perfect opportunity to assess how manufacturing executives reacted to the news in real time.

Rob and Bob Kill, our president and CEO, released the results at a digital press conference on April 20.

The results show that while Minnesota’s manufacturers share broad long-term confidence about the future prospects of their companies, they are strapping in for a tumultuous COVID-19-related economic ride.
