US manufacturing is rolling on aged wheels
The Wall Street Journal
The equipment used by many U.S. manufacturers is getting creaky. Even as economic indicators rise, domestic capital spending has remained anemic by historical standards, especially in manufacturing. In contrast, companies have spent heavily on acquisitions and stock buybacks. That choice could hobble efforts by U.S. firms to compete more effectively with foreign rivals in the years ahead. The average age of industrial equipment in the U.S. has risen above 10 years, the highest since 1938, economists at Morgan Stanley said in a recent report.

Credentialing helps troops enter private sector
Department of Defense via Military.com
A Defense Department initiative is helping service members who plan to leave the military acquire civilian credentials for technical professions so they can move more quickly into the private sector, the department's director of force readiness and training said in a recent DoD News interview. Frank DiGiovanni said the initiative was helped along substantially by a change Congress made in 2012 in a section of Title 10 of the U.S. Code.

The US South rises as a manufacturing hub
Bloomberg Businessweek
Just before the recession hit in 2007, Electrolux, the Swedish home-appliance maker, was trying to decide what to do about an aging plant outside Montreal. The building was more than 100 years old and the line of high-end stoves and ovens produced there needed a refresh. The factory's 1,300 union workers earned around $20 an hour. Rather than sink more money into the old plant, Electrolux decided to move where it could operate more cheaply.

High school welding students can count on jobs at port in Tampa, Florida
The Tampa Tribune
Dylan Wilson pulls his face mask down over his eyes and braces himself against the wall before grabbing a torch and fusing two pieces of metal. For the 16-year-old Jefferson High School junior, the best part of the school day is the two periods he spends in welding class as one of 278 students in welding programs districtwide — at Hillsborough High in Tampa, Florida, and Tampa Bay Technical High as well as Jefferson. Welding is one of many career and technical programs open to Hillsborough County school district students and one of the ways the district is helping answer the need for more young skilled employees to replace workers retiring from ship repair jobs at Port Tampa Bay.

US manufacturing grows at fastest pace in 3 years
Bloomberg
Gains in manufacturing boosted the U.S. expansion in August, led by a surge in orders for plastics and metals that powered the world’s largest economy past a global slowdown. The Institute for Supply Management's index unexpectedly climbed to 59, the highest level since March 2011, from July's 57.1, beating all forecasts in a Bloomberg survey of economists. The orders gauge was the strongest in a decade, the Tempe, Arizona-based group reported recently.

US natural gas exports fuel Mexican manufacturing boom
The Wall Street Journal
The growing glut of U.S. natural gas is helping to power a manufacturing boom in Mexico. Natural gas exports across the southern border have risen 11 percent so far this year, to 2 billion cubic feet a day, according to Bentek Energy, an analytics company based in Denver. And that flow of gas could double in the next few years, analysts say. Companies have announced plans for at least seven new pipelines to take gas across the border from Texas and Arizona, including one expected to start transporting fuel at the end of the month.
