In Q4 2017, manufacturers’ optimism rose to unprecedented heights amid the legislative progress made on tax reform, according to the results of the Manufacturers' Outlook Survey conducted by The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM).

Bowen, who has been in the consulting business for 31 years.
