Demands and Challenges Within the Construction and Heavy Equipment Industry

The cyclical demand that governs the construction and heavy equipment industry places a premium on component manufacturers’ partnering with lean, nimble suppliers that can respond to their dynamic production schedule. In boom times, infrastructure investment, private enterprise expansion, and custom home features may require rapid retooling and expansion of manufacturing capabilities. As the economy slows, demand may shift to mass-produced building materials and standard specifications that enable homebuilders and municipal building departments to save on design and building costs. The global nature of construction and heavy equipment investment also brings international relations, currency exchange rates, and trade policies into play. In order for U.S.-based domestic transnational manufacturing companies, heavy-civil contractors, and specialty construction companies to remain competitive, they must secure consistent, reliable, cost-effective supplier resources.
