U of M Researchers: Michigan’s economy will keep growing!
Michigan has seen the creation of more than 220,000 private sector jobs since December 2010, and a new report shows that our state’s economy is strong, and it’s going to keep on growing.
According to University of Michigan researchers, Michigan’s economy saw a great year in 2013 — and there’s more of that to come:
“Michigan is closing out 2013 with a healthy year of job growth, the second-largest gain in jobs over a year since as far back as 1999, and well in excess of the average yearly gains recorded from 1971 to 2000, prior to the extended downturn of the 2000s.”
As for the future, the researchers have a bright outlook for the Great Lakes State, writing that “We are forecasting job growth to continue at a solid pace through 2015.”
There’s more great news, too. The U of M researchers write that Michigan “trumps the nation” in both high-wage and middle-wage job growth, and our state “ranks fourth among all 51 states (including Washington, D.C.) in job growth from 2010 to 2012 in the high-wage industry category.”
More and better jobs and a brighter future for our kids. That’s what reinventing Michigan is all about!
We are proud to use Michigan made products. The majority of our roofing materials and supplies come from Duro-Last Roofing in Saginaw, Michigan. We have partnered with Duro-Last for decades and they have never let us down. They are a perfect example of what makes Michigan great. We at Springfield urge everyone to buy and use products made in Michigan whenever possible. Let’s keep Michigan rolling as the nation’s #1 come-back state.
Since the beginning of the decade, Michigan has created more than 88,100 manufacturing jobs, read on….http://industrytoday.com/article_view.asp?ArticleID=we603
Springfield offices lost power this past Monday at 6:30 a.m. during our weekly production meeting. The room filled with 8 managers went from fully lighted to pitch black. Conversation stopped and the room went silent for for less than 3 seconds when one of our leaders, Joe Graham, pulled a flashlight out of his pocket and set it in the middle of the conference room table. The meeting resumed without fanfare and ten minutes later the meeting concluded just as the power came back on.
Springfield has a long history of problem solving – – whether it’s losing power at the office or encountering something unforeseen on a rooftop. We will solve your problem and we will “git R done”
Please participate in the Hiring Our Heroes Program!
How many of you know of a young man or woman who grew up on the neighboring farm or in your subdivision who joined the military right after high school, served our country and then came home? We LOVE to hire those young men and women coming home from the service. We are forever grateful for their dedication to our country and they almost always possess a high level of courtesy, respect and pride in their workmanship. As a veteran-owned company, Springfield makes special efforts to recruit veterans. Give us a call – we can help you with your commercial building and your project may even be completed by the kid down the road who is now home from the military.
God Bless America!
What a blessing it is to be busy in Wexford County and Northern Michigan this summer! We recently had a downstate sales representative contact us about subcontracting out some of our roofing work to an extremely reasonable company out of Texas. While we appreciated his suggestion, we have never considered passing over hard working Michigan men and women in favor of employing subcontractors from out of state. Springfield will continue to utilize their own employees – hiring as many people as necessary to accommodate our workload. After all – it’s a win-win for everyone in Michigan when we utilize our own qualified and impressive local labor force. Hiring Springfield for your project will guarantee that your project will be completed by local Michigan W-2 employees earning competitive wages and benefits.
