Chris Kuehl presents 2021 economic predictions for manufacturers

Kansas Manufacturing Solutions has partnered with Chris Kuehl and Armada Corporate Intelligence to provide Kansas manufacturers forward looking economic insight.  The objective of the KMS - Armada partnership is to provide economic data, and an understanding of what that data means, to manufacturers so they can make informed business decisions in the midst of the uncertain and changing economic conditions that have resulted largely from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Armada is a corporate intelligence firm specializing in analyzing the market forces bearing down on businesses. They use proprietary methodologies built over the past 20 years to process and understand what’s happening in your world today.

Chris is a Managing Director of Armada Corporate Intelligence and one of the co-founders of the company. He has been Armada's economic analyst and has worked with a wide variety of private clients and professional associations in the last 18 years. He is also the Economic Analyst for the Fabricators and Manufacturers Association and writes their bi-weekly publication, Fabrinomics, which details the impact of economic trends on manufacturers.  


On January 21, Chris presented some of his economic expectations for 2021 in a webinar for Kansas manufacturers.
