Manufacturing declined for a second straight month in July, but the drop was slower than the previous month, a monthly survey of corporate buyers released yesterday showed. It was the third time in the last four months that the manufacturing sector of the economy declined, the National Association of Purchasing Management said. In a separate report, the government said yesterday that spending on construction projects jumped 1.2 percent in June, the best showing this year. But analysts said the important residential sector was still not responding as it should to the lowest interest rates in two decades.

With diet food again running low at Nutri/System weight-loss centers, the company's franchisees will ask a federal judge today to let them take control of ordering food. Food supplies in the company's warehouses will be virtually depleted by the weekend, the franchisees said in a petition filed Friday with Bankruptcy Court Judge David A. Scholl. Arguments on that request are scheduled for 9:30 a.m. The franchisees forced the Blue Bell company into bankruptcy proceedings May 4 because their food shipments had been cut off since April 27, when bank creditors shut the company down by seizing all of its operating funds.

Manufacturing is up nationally, the Institute for Supply Management said Monday, citing its much-watched monthly report based on a survey of executives in procurement and supply-chain businesses. The president of the Manufacturing Alliance of Philadelphia noted similar results based on his own survey - one that involves a couple of phone calls to the city's box manufacturers. "They are almost a canary in the mine," Alliance president Stephen Jurash said Monday. Boxes form the essence of the supply chain - all those goods need to be shipped in something, Jurash said.

June 4, 1992 | FROM INQUIRER WIRE SERVICES
New orders to the nation's factories rose 1 percent in April, marking the longest string of consecutive gains in nearly four years, the government said yesterday. Economists said the advance, the fourth-straight, suggested that the economic expansion was continuing, albeit at a less-than-robust pace. "It's progress, but it's slow progress," said economist Cynthia Latta of DRI/McGraw-Hill, a Lexington, Mass., forecasting firm. Economists said the gain supported the view that a weaker-than-normal economic recovery was in place that would push gross domestic product about 2.5 percent to 3 percent higher in 1992.

Steady as it goes was the theme of this month's Business Outlook Survey released Thursday by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. The survey of area manufacturers showed continued modest improvement in economic activity and an optimism that things will be better in six months. It marked the seventh month in a row that the survey showed a positive response from manufacturers. The survey is based on responses from area manufacturers questioned about a series of business indicators and whether they were up or down for the month.

Regional manufacturers reported that general business conditions deteriorated markedly over the last month, according to a survey released yesterday by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. The widely watched survey indicated drops in a number of key areas, including new orders, the number of employees, and the average employee workweek. One bright spot was a tempered but increasing optimism that the economy will begin to improve over the next six months. The results were based on a survey by mail and the Internet from Feb. 1 to 17. Of 160 companies queried, about 85 responded, according to Mike Trebing, senior economic analyst for the Philly Fed. All the companies have more than 100 employees and are from eastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey, or Delaware.

Manufacturing activity in the Philadelphia area was essentially flat in September, which was an improvement from August but less than what economists forecast. Several individual components of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia's monthly Business Outlook survey, which was released Thursday, were worrisome - especially new orders received by manufacturers and shipments of their finished products. The survey's overall index rose to minus 0.7 in September from minus 7.7 last month.

Innovative Solutions & Support Inc., of Exton, announced Monday that it had received $12 million of orders so far during the current fiscal quarter, which will end June 30. The orders were for cockpit displays and air data products for the military, commercial air transport and general aviation sectors. Orders for the military - including a full flight deck retrofit of a C-130 aircraft - made up 58 percent, the most among the three areas. The company, which manufactures, designs and markets systems that display critical flight information, said it expects production for the new orders to begin in the next quarter and be completed within 18 months.

The nation's purchasing managers said yesterday that a key index of manufacturing activity fell last month to its lowest level in almost eight years. The purchasing managers' index fell a full percentage point to 43.4 percent in October, meaning the manufacturing sector is contracting at its fastest pace since it fell to 42.8 percent in December 1982, the National Association of Purchasing Management said. The weakness in manufacturing, which accounts for about one-fifth of all the goods and services, has pulled down the overall economy, the private group said.

New Order deftly looped the past to the present to open its set at the sold-out Tower Theater on Saturday night. "Singularity," from last year's Music Complete , began with a foreboding, sparse arrangement that contained echoes of the band's early-'80s origins while videos played of Thatcher-era crowd clashes and Berlin Wall protests. Then, the band played a note-perfect "Ceremony," the last song that Joy Division wrote before the death of lead singer Ian Curtis and the 1981 debut single released by the remaining members under the name New Order.

A Pennsylvania appellate court on Tuesday ordered a new trial for Msgr. William J. Lynn, overturning for a second time a landmark verdict that was the first conviction nationwide of a Catholic Church official for covering up child sex abuse by priests. A three-judge Superior Court panel found that Lynn's 2012 conviction had been tainted by prosecutors' presentation of nearly two dozen examples of the Philadelphia Archdiocese's failure to handle pedophilia within its ranks. Lynn, however, was only charged in connection with his supervision of two priests.

Last summer, the New Jersey Supreme Court ordered a new trial for Vonte Skinner, saying the admission of rap lyrics he had written before he was arrested on charges of attempted murder prejudiced the jury in his earlier trial. On Tuesday, as his new trial was about to commence, Skinner raised yet another legal issue, telling a judge he wanted to dismiss his lawyer and defend himself. "I'm not going to continue to get railroaded," Skinner angrily told Superior Court Judge Jeanne T. Covert in Mount Holly a few minutes before a jury was to be selected.

Ruling that the trial judge's questioning of witnesses prejudiced the jury, a Pennsylvania appeals court has ordered a new trial for a veteran Philadelphia police officer convicted of false arrest. In unusually critical terms, a three-judge panel of the Superior Court ruled Tuesday that Aleksander Shwarz was denied a fair trial because of questions by Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Earl W. Trent Jr. At the same time, the court said, the jury probably would have convicted Shwarz based on the evidence alone.

Let the fight in City Hall over the precious and few millions in new spending money begin. At least when it comes to new cars and trucks. City Council begins its budget hearings Wednesday to decide how Mayor Nutter's proposed $4.5 billion pot of money will be disbursed in the fiscal year that starts July 1, and some fuss is already being made over what vehicles will be purchased. During last week's budget address, Nutter proposed $12 million in new funding for the Office of Fleet Management.

Four in 10 regional manufacturing companies plan to hire in 2014, the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia reported in a closely watched survey released Thursday. "It was a bit of a surprise to see a 41 percent expansion in employment," bank senior economic analyst Michael Trebing said Thursday, commenting on the report. "That number overwhelmed the 10 percent [of companies] that expect to decrease" their payrolls, Trebing said. Trebing said the Philadelphia regional manufacturing report is closely watched nationally because the city's manufacturing base is diverse, making it more of a proxy for the entire nation.

The sand dunes created to protect the Jersey Shore may be worth more than an unobstructed view of ocean. However, it is up to a jury to decide how much, if any, a Harvey Cedars couple should receive after a large piece of their property was taken by the state to construct 22-foot dunes that also blocked part of their view of Long Beach Island's surf. The New Jersey Supreme Court on Monday tossed out a $375,000 jury award to Harvey and Phyllis Karan in the case filed five years ago, sending it back to Ocean County for a new trial.

The extension of the federal wind-power tax credit as part of the fiscal cliff package was hailed as a victory Wednesday by renewable power advocates. But a Bucks County wind-turbine manufacturer, where much of the workforce was furloughed in September because of a slowdown in orders, is unlikely to ramp up production any time soon because of the last-minute congressional rescue of the tax credit. "I think it will take a little while for this to work its way to the manufacturing sector, but it will be a stimulus," said David J. Rosenberg, the vice president of marketing for Gamesa USA, the Spanish wind-turbine manufacturer with U.S. headquarters in Langhorne.
