At the 2018 AHR EXPO held in Chicago, Illinois Jan 22-24, 2018, optimism was high for growth in the coming year with 89% of respondents to the ASHRE Journal Annual Economic Outlook Survey forecasting excellent or good growth vs. 74% in 2017. This comes on the heels of a strong 2017 for more than 34% of the respondents.
Most bullish sector is the residential, light commercial office building/industry market which Mercury Manufacturing serves through our OEM compressor manufacturing customers. Within this sector, new construction as opposed to replacement/maintenance work, was identified as the biggest market driver which supports the overall indications that the US economic outlook for 2018 is strong.
Reliability, affordable price and energy efficiency are influential factors in end user sourcing decisions. This is where the custom, high performance valves developed and manufactured by Mercury Mfg perform best. Contact us to discuss your specific application requirements.
