Michael Coakley, director of Audit & Accounting and head of Kreischer Miller's Manufacturing Industry Group, was recently interviewed for a weekly 98.1WOGL "Philadelphia Agenda" segment on the state of manufacturing in Philadelphia.

In the segment, Michael discusses some of the results from Kreischer Miller's 2017 Greater Philadelphia Manufacturing Survey, including an increasing shortage of skilled labor in the industry as well as a rising sense of economic optimism among the region's manufacturers.

He was joined by John Shegda, President of M&S Centerless Grinding and Tom Krol, President of IMET Corporation, who provided a firsthand account of the state of manufacturing in our region.
