  • Manufacturing poised for promising future, Northeastern University study says - 09/13/2012

    After decades of losing factory and assembly line jobs, manufacturing is poised for a promising future in Massachusetts, thanks to corporate investments in cutting-edge technologies and skilled workers who are churning out high-end products faster and cheaper than ever here, a new study says.

    Barry Bluestone, the lead researcher on the study and director of the Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Studies at Northeastern, said he wasn’t expecting to find manufacturing in such good shape, considering its historical downward trend and the severity of the recent recession.
