Material handling's future tied to upping US capacity
from Material Flows
During the Material Handling Industry's Fall Meetings in San Antonio, representatives from the major product sections of MHI gave their assessment of this country's fiscal health based on their own fiscal health. Hal Vandiver, MHI's executive consultant, said that for the next two or three years we can expect lackluster growth overall, judging by housing starts and employment. Furthermore, unemployment is expected to be above normal for the next two or three years. That means consumer durables will be low. So we're not headed for a consumer rebound, he said.
