CHICAGO – Senior management at U.S. manufacturing companies is once again optimistic, according to a Grant Thornton LLP November survey. The survey was conducted Nov. 3-16, 2010, with 63 senior executives from U.S. manufacturing companies. Nearly half (49%) believe the U.S. economy will improve in the next six months, and the same amount (49%) say they plan to increase staff during the same period.

Manufacturing leaders are also optimistic about their own businesses, with 81% feeling optimistic about their companies’ growth over the next six months, the survey results indicate.
