The Heavy-Duty Manufacturing Industry Posts Record Sales in June

Record sales in the heavy-duty trucking industry translate into sustain growth and success for automotive manufacturing companies and suppliers in 2015.

Economic forecasts for the heavy-duty trucking manufacturing industry are strong right now thanks to record sales this June. According to the Heavy Duty Manufacturers Association (HDMA), U.S. sales of heavy-duty trucks reached the third-highest level in history in June, 2015. Sales are attributed to large fleet orders placed back in the fall and winter of 2014 that are now being delivered. The June sales record continues a growth phase within the industry and experts believe the trend will continue into the future.

Sales Soar This Summer

June’s sales volume was 18% higher than May, 2015 and was the most ever for the month of June. In all, 25,369 Class 8 trucks were sold, representing a 31% increase over last year. The last highest record for June was set back in 2006 with the sale of 25,240 Class 8 trucks. Best of all, HDMA projects that sales will continue and will sustain a positive outlook for the heavy-duty trucking industry through 2015. This is great news for those in the market who are looking to continue the growth cycle that has been building in the past years and is supporting a strong return of the heavy-duty trucking manufacturing industry.

Record Sales Sustain Future Growth

This is great news for the domestic automotive manufacturing industry and the nation’s economy as a whole.   Record sales translate into additional manufacturing jobs and employment opportunities which in turn boosts the economy and sustains economic growth throughout the country. Heavy-duty manufacturing sales affect not only manufacturing companies, but manufacturing suppliers as well.
