05/10/2011


Siemens released its global results for the second quarter of FY2011; in the U.S. market, the company showed sales growth of 9%, order intake growth of 15%, and increased hiring.

The announcement came as the U.S. Dept. of Labor Bureau of Labor StatisticsApril jobs report showed a higher-than-expected increase in jobs. Employment in professional and business services continued its expansion, with an increase of 51,000 jobs in April.

At Siemens U.S., job growth was concentrated in the industrial automation, building efficiency, Smart Grid, and information technology (IT) areas.

In the Building Technologies division, which is seeing an increase in orders to retrofit and upgrade buildings with energy-efficient and automation solutions, there are more than 400 open positions in the sales, engineering, and field service job categories. In particular, Field Service expects to add approximately 100 new technicians per year over the next 3 to 4 years at both the entry and experienced level. In an effort to prepare junior technicians for these roles, a comprehensive training program has been developed to enhance the training experience for newly hired technicians and significantly reduce the time to deploy these individuals to service customers.

There is also significant growth in products and solutions related to the building of Smart Grid infrastructure in the U.S. – from power generation and meters to monitoring, voltage regulators, reclosers, disconnectors, smart buildings, and lighting.

Siemens' Smart Grid Applications business established its headquarters last year in the Raleigh area of North Carolina and in the past 4 months has filled 26 positions, and expects to hire an additional 100 employees by the end of 2012. Most of the jobs require expertise in electrical engineering, power systems engineering, project management and software development to work in business development and in applications like e-vehicle infrastructure, meter data management, and power systems design.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
