Some Good, Some Bad
How Contract Glaziers Feel About the Future
Depends on Where They Work
by Lyle R. Hill
When USGlass magazine approached us about creating a way
to measure contract glaziersí confidence in the future, we set about to
test and develop research which, when merged together through algorithm,
could provide such a measure. (For more information on the USGlass Contract
Glazier Confidence Index, see page 6 of this issue).
Keytech surveyed contract glaziers on a variety of topics. I was overwhelmed
by not only the high number of responses but also by the passion expressed
in their comments.
The five indices included here are important for a variety of reasons,
among them the noticeable differences in the results by region. Whatís
striking as well is the great schism between the opinions of those in
coastal states versus inland ones. We plan to provide updated numbers
and trends analysis on a regular basis. Thanks to all who participated.
