Industrial Heating’s monthly economic indicators for June 2016 rebounded in a big way from May. All four numbers improved from last month and three of four showed growth. The one number that did not show growth, change in backlog, was at its highest level since September 2015. June 2016’s index numbers reflect the changes experienced by responding companies as they compare their May 2016 business levels to their April 2016 levels. June 2016’s index numbers:

  • Change in number of orders from April to May – 51.2
  • Change in backlog from April to May – 49.8
