Volatility in the Manufacturing Industry

We keep hearing that the economy is doing great, so why are so many manufacturers downsizing? Since the Great Recession, the industry has become accustomed to instability. We’ve seen reductions at multiple OEMs in 2019, and now we are beginning to see the downstream impact of these reductions on many Tier 1 manufacturers.
