Outlook on Chicago’s Industrial Sector
June 26, 2015
The 2015 Market Outlook event recently took place in Chicago. In this interview, Elise Couston, Senior Managing Director at Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, interviewed one of the event’s panel speakers, Dave Pickering, Global VP of Research – Industrial Manufacturing at Industrial Info Resources. In this interview, Pickering speaks about some of the current trends in manufacturing, including: re-shoring of manufacturers; the use of existing plants for re-shoring companies (rather than new construction); the resurgence of textile companies; European automakers moving more of their manufacturing to the US; the rise in 3D manufacturing; and the opening of companies in lower income areas to provide jobs, training, and growth in those communities.
