I was out visiting our customers and thankfully had time to tour four of our aerospace manufacturing plants. It then occurred to me that things are never as they seem. Current news reports would lead us to believe that the American aerospace industry is tumbling on fears from Europe’s apparent poor economy. However, from what I saw and from what our customers tell me, they’re so busy that they can barely keep up with demand.
America has a unique way to continue to grow and prosper, without care to what the rest of the world is experiencing. This current situation is one of those marvels. In fact, so is the entire American aerospace industry. It has never worried what’s going on or what the rest of the world is doing. They just put their heads down, continued to work, and as a result – we are world leaders.
During my tour, they informed me of their plans to hire over the next few months….Who says things aren’t what they seem? I just hope they don’t turn CNN or Fox news on us
