Sonnhalter Releases State of the Construction Industry Podcast

Podcast interviews STAFDA Executive Director Georgia Foley on industry challenges for 2012.

Sonnhalter, a communications firm marketing to the professional tradesman in the construction, industrial and MRO markets, released a podcast interview with Georgia Foley of the Specialty Tools and Fasteners Distributors Association (STAFDA) about the state of the construction industry.

The podcast interview with Foley, who is the executive director of STAFDA, gives a brief overview of the construction industry in 2011 and the industry’s outlook after the first major industry show of the year, World of Concrete.

“The construction industry certainly continues to have its challenges as it moves into 2012,” said John Sonnhalter, rainmaker journeyman at Sonnhalter. “This podcast gives some valuable insight into where construction was last year and where the industry experts see it going in the year ahead.”

“Made in the USA has become increasingly important. Americans are paying attention to the country of origin and are making an effort to avoid products from other countries,” said Foley. “Manufacturing is improving and profits are up, but finding qualified employees is a problem for many.”
