    A note from MDNA member Automatics & Machinery in Longmont, Colo., regarding Colorado flooding
    MDNA
    "Although many homes and business are under water, A&M was not affected by the rain or floods. The waters did get as close as 200 yards from our office but they never reached our doors. Still a pretty scary sight. Business will open on Monday. Thank you to those who contacted all of us with their best wishes and offers of help. We are blessed to know you, and thank you all for your concerns."

    INDUSTRY NEWS


    Hawaii to take on all manufacturing industry inspections beginning Oct. 1
    Occupational Health & Safety
    Starting Oct. 1, manufacturing companies in Hawaii will return to being inspected by their state inspection organization after being inspected on a national level for the last year. Various companies throughout Hawaii were inspected by OSHA for the last year as part of a three-year agreement made between OSHA and the Hawaii Occupational Safety and Health Division. The agreement was made because HIOSH needed training, extra hands on inspections and some rebuilding on their already established program.

    Reuters
    U.S. factory output surged in August as the pace of motor vehicle assemblies jumped to a six-year high, a hopeful sign for the economy after a slow start to the third quarter. Although another report showed a slight pullback in factory activity in New York state recently, businesses were upbeat about the future. In addition, gauges of new orders and shipments in the state jumped, all pointing to a pick-up in manufacturing after a speed bump in the spring.
