WSJ: "U.S. Manufacturing Rides Rising Tide, Buoyed by Global Growth, Optimism"

“The U.S. manufacturers have added 156,000 workers since Donald Trump was elected president in November 2016, according to government data.” U.S. Manufacturing Rides Rising Tide, Buoyed by Global Growth, Optimism By Andrew Tangel and Josh Zumbrun The Wall Street Journal November 14, 2017 American manufacturing has picked up pace over the last 12 months thanks to steady global economic growth, a rise in energy and other commodity prices, and increased business confidence. … The sector “absolutely has improved relative to where we were a year ago,” said William Strauss, a manufacturing economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, who described the growth as modest. Employment numbers point to the overall progress. The U.S. manufacturers have added 156,000 workers since Donald Trump was elected president in November 2016, according to government data. … Also, business investment has risen, a sign companies are spending to increase productivity. In the first quarter, investment in plants climbed a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 14.8%, the highest since early 2014. Investment in equipment climbed 8.8% in the second quarter, the highest in almost two years. … Global energy and commodity prices have rebounded amid growth in many economies around the world. That has boosted sales for Illinois-based manufacturing giant Caterpillar Inc. and other makers of heavy machinery used to extract natural resources. In the process, Caterpillar has increased its domestic workforce by 3,200 from the end of March to 49,700 at the end of September. … Part of the optimism stemmed from the election of a businessman as president last November and Mr. Trump’s promise of reduced taxes and fewer regulations. … Among 70 manufacturing sub-industries tracked by the Labor Department, 19 have seen robust employment increases of 2.5% or more since October 2016, the month before the election. … Still, many business leaders remain hopeful Mr. Trump can deliver an infrastructure-spending plan and trade measures that benefit domestic manufacturers. Harley-Davidson Inc. Chief Executive Matt Levatich credits Mr. Trump’s administration with turning a welcome spotlight on manufacturing and skilled trades. … American corporate chiefs and other observers see the administration’s actions to roll back federal regulations—an agenda that has moved ahead with less public fanfare—as likely to help in the long term. The Trump administration, according to [Stanley Black & Decker Inc. Chief Executive Officer James] Loree, has provided the “icing on the cake” for the sector via its deregulatory efforts and its general pro-business approach. “It’s a moment in time when it’s all coming together,” the Stanley Black & Decker CEO said.

Royal Enfield's big bike could test Harley's India dominance

Harley-Davidson Inc's pole position in India's fast growing big-bike category is set to face a sweeping test when Indian-owned Royal Enfield launches its first heavyweight bike on Tuesday. The world's biggest bike and scooter market with 18 million in the year to last March, India accounts for less than 2 percent of Harley's global sales but is now a production location for its popular Street 750 bike and a promising generator of growth as U.S. demand slows. Harley was the first major player in the country's big bike market - defined as those with engines above 601cc - and controls 60 percent of a segment that has almost tripled in size since 2014 and is expected to double again in the next 4-5 years.

On The Road Again

Today is National Manufacturing Day—and that gives me the opportunity to talk about two of my favorite things: Wisconsin and tax reform.   Harley-Davidson is a proud “Made in America” company. And for over 100 years, they’ve also been a “Made in Wisconsin” company. That’s why I was so excited to make a pit stop at their Menomonee Falls, WI factory to not only see how Harley assembles their engines, but to talk with workers on the factory floor about what tax reform will mean for them.   These hogs, made in America, are taxed at about 35%. But Harley competes against companies like Triumph in England and BMW in Germany who are taxed at 18 and 24%, respectively. And as a result, American business and American jobs are being put at a big competitive disadvantage.    Tax reform can fix that by putting American manufacturers and American companies like Harley-Davidson on a much better footing to compete in the global economy and keep jobs here in America.    More jobs, fairer taxes, and bigger paychecks for workers—that’s what this is all about.   You can watch a video of my visit here.

The September Story

The month of September was filled with headline-making moments—moments that will leave a lasting impact on so many Americans. There were moments of great sadness and loss with Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. Moments of triumph and joy with the return of Whip Steve Scalise to the people’s House. And moments of confidence and optimism that accompany the House’s efforts to pass bold, pro-growth tax reform for the first time since 1986. Here are nine such moments from the month that tell the story of September, through the eyes of the Speaker of the House: 1.   #ScaliseStrong – Speaker Ryan greets Majority Whip Steve Scalise upon his return to the people’s House after being shot in June while practicing for the Congressional Baseball Game.        2.   #HurricaneHarvey – While visiting Houston, Texas to lend a hand with Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, Speaker Ryan prays with volunteers serving breakfast to displaced Houstonians.        3.   #MadeInAmerica – At Harley-Davidson’s factory in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, Speaker Ryan learns about the assembly process for engines and transmissions. This stop is one of many on his tour of Made in America companies to discuss the benefits of tax reform.        4.   #HurricaneIrma – Speaker Ryan looks out the back of a C-130 to survey Hurricane Irma’s devastation along the Florida Keys.        5.   #SmallBiz – During another stop on his Made in America tax reform tour—this time at Penn Machine Works outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania—Speaker Ryan observes one part of the pipe manufacturing process.        6.   #Bipartisanship – With a bipartisan group of Members from Texas, Speaker Ryan sends a Hurricane Harvey aid package off to the White House.        7.   #HurricaneMaria –Speaker Ryan meets with Puerto Rico Congresswoman Jenniffer González-Colón to learn more about the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria, and to pledge resources to help Puerto Rico rebuild and recover.        8.   #CTE – During a visit to New Berlin School District’s Eisenhower School in New Berlin, Wisconsin to discuss their career and technical education (CTE) programs, Speaker Ryan cracks a few jokes with a teacher who attended his rival high school.        9.   #TaxReform – Ryan meets with House, Senate, and White House leaders to discuss the unified framework for tax reform just days before it is released.

A Quick Pit Stop

Founded in Milwaukee, WI in 1903, Harley-Davidson is as intertwined with the Wisconsin culture as Miller beer, cheese curds, and the Green Bay Packers. Last week, Speaker Ryan made a pit stop at Harley’s Powertrain Operations facility in Menomonee Falls, WI (just outside of Milwaukee). Harley is also one of the many American companies being handicapped by our current tax system. Like many American companies, Harley competes on a global stage. Two of its competitors, Triumph in England and BMW in Germany, are taxed at 18 percent and 24 percent respectively. Harley is essentially handicapped against its competitors with a statutory tax rate of 35 percent. Pro-growth tax reform that significantly lowers that rate will not only make American companies more competitive, but will raise wages and create more jobs. Here are seven photos from the Speaker’s recent pit stop in Menomonee Falls, where he toured the facility and spoke with Harley’s executive leadership team about how tax reform can help make companies like Harley more globally competitive. 1.   The Briefing – At the start of the facility tour, Speaker Ryan is briefed on which parts of the assembly process are completed at the Menomonee Falls location. 2.   The Operations Manager – Powertrain Operations facility General Manager Randy Christianson guides Speaker Ryan through the tour of the 912,000 square-foot space.   3.   The Assembly Man – While on the tour, Speaker Ryan stops to talk to a factory employee about his role in the engine assembly process. 4.   The Automated Arm – While watching an automated assembly process, Speaker Ryan asks a question about the programming of the assembly arm. 5.   The Next Steps – At the end of the tour, Speaker Ryan learns about the next steps in the assembly process for the completed engines and transmissions. 6.   The CEO – Harley-Davidson President and CEO Matt Levatich shows Speaker Ryan the features on one of the new edition Hogs. 7.   The Leadership Roundtable – Speaker Ryan meets with Harley’s executive leadership team to discuss the need for competitive tax reform. Watch Speaker Ryan’s remarks at Harley-Davidson here.

Батареи хватает в среднем на 85 км, полная зарядка за 3,5 часа.
