Factories in the Inland Empire were busy in January, with more new orders coming in and an uptick in production from the previous month, a study released Feb. 1 found. It did not, however, translate into additional job offers for Inland workers in the sector, and some factory executives say they’re concerned about uncertainties on the federal level, including the possibility of interruptions in global trade agreements and another government shutdown. The Purchasing Managers Index, based on a monthly survey of 30 manufacturing executives by the Institute of Applied Research at CSU San Bernardino, was 55.3 in January, up from 51.7 the previous month. The index has been above 50, the level that suggests growth, for 25 consecutive months. Increases were reported in new orders and production, two key factors. But the employment index declined five points, to 46.7. suggesting employers were reticent in hiring new workers. It was the first time this measurement has been below 50 in more than two years. The sector employed an estimated 99,900 Inland Empire residents in December, according to state data. While several major job classifications saw job growth of close to or better than 3 percent in 2018, manufacturing had a more subdued 1.6 percent growth rate. Also, of the 30 factory managers who responded to the Cal State survey, about two-thirds said the local economy would not change in the next quarter. The remaining participants were evenly split, with 17 percent predicting a stronger economy and 17 percent saying it would weaken. Barbara Sirotnik, director of the CSU institute, said 22 percent were forecasting a stronger quarter a month earlier. A year ago, 54 percent predicted a better economy Respondents who were not identified but quoted in the report cited uncertainties in the economy based on a variety of factors, from global trade to banks that are more cautious in lending. “Tariffs are beginning to be a factor for inbound materials and outbound orders,” one executive wrote. “Also, there was slow action at customs because of the government shutdown.” Eugene Montanez, co-owner of Allegra Marketing, a Corona-based business that prints marketing material, said in an interview that caution is the key word in his business and those of his customers. “I don’t think anyone thinks the sky is falling, it’s just a matter of watching the bottom line,” Montanez said. “In our case, we have to be careful we don’t overhire and risk not being as profitable as we need to be.” County trade mission to South Korea San Bernardino County will send a trade mission to South Korea in April, an effort to connect local businesses with new export partners and provide a boost to the local economy. The trade mission will include one-on-one meetings between Inland Empire business leaders and South Korean executives who might be considering new investments in the United States. Local officials will also meet with their counterparts, with most of the meetings taking place in Seoul. Direct investment from South Korea into the United States has more than doubled in recent years and now is close to $41 billion. As a market for goods made in San Bernardino County, officials are eying South Korea’s interest in California products. In 2017, California exported more than $9.6 billion in goods to South Korea, making it the largest trading partner of any state. ONT website goes multilingual Ontario International Airport has added Spanish and Mandarin versions of its website, further expanding its marketing efforts. Diversifying its website with additional languages will make the airport easier to navigate for international passengers, airport CEO Mark Thorpe said in a statement. This will be extended to ONT’s other social media platforms as well. Translating marketing material in Mandarin has been strongly considered since China Airlines began daily nonstop service to Taiwan last March. Work starts on Menifee apartments Construction has begun on Artesa at Menifee Town Center, an apartment complex in the heart of the city. The 15-acre complex is a joint project of MBK Rental Living and Irvine-based R.D. Olson Construction. The complex will feature 37 two-and three-story buildings and a host of outdoor amenities. It is within walking distance of shopping and entertainment venues. The complex is R.D. Olson’s third multifamily project in the Inland Empire and the largest one the firm has ever undertaken. ‘Smart’ apartments in Chino Hills Residents of a new apartment complex in Chino Hills will have Alexa as a permanent roommate. Santa Barbara, a 324-unit community developed by the Lewis Homes organization, is the first in the Inland Empire to feature built-in smart technology. The features can also save renters considerable amounts in utility money. It includes an Alexa-enabled device, lighting connected to the Alexa system, doorbells that can be answered even when not home and smart lighting and thermostats. Santa Barbara, located across the street from Chino Hills High School, features one- to four-bedroom units with rents starting at more than $2,000. EoS Fitness coming to Redlands EoS Fitness, a 24-hour gym that features state-of-the-art equipment as well as facilities for members’ children, is coming to Redlands, according to a statement. Work on the facility, at the intersection of Alabama Street and Almond Avenue, is scheduled to start this spring, although presale membership options will be offered by the summer. It is expected to open late in 2019. EoS currently has seven locations in Southern California. Luchs to head real estate office Matthew Luchs has been named regional manager for the Ontario office of commercial real estate firm Marcus & Millichap, according to a company statement. Luchs has been with the firm since 2017 and previously was the sales manager of its Encino office. Prior to joining the company, he worked for NAI Capital. ‘Signature’ hotel in Temecula RLH Corp. has reached a franchise license deal to put its “Signature” brand on a hotel in Temecula’s Old Town. The existing hotel is currently undergoing a refurbishment and repositioning with a retro-modern feel. The work on the Signature Temecula is expected to be completed by this summer. Denver-based RHC executed 167 new franchise agreements in 2018. ICYMI … Housing vouchers in SB For the first time in four years, San Bernardino County has opened applications for federal housing assistance, commonly called the Section 8 program. The last time the lottery opened, 25,000 families applied. Applicants who qualify will be put on a waiting list for the housing vouchers if they apply by 4 p.m., Feb. 25.

Factories in the Inland Empire were busy in January, with more new orders coming in and an uptick in production from the previous month, a study released Feb. 1 found. It did not, however, translate into additional job offers for Inland workers in the sector, and some factory executives say they’re concerned about uncertainties on the federal level, including the possibility of interruptions in global trade agreements and another government shutdown. The Purchasing Managers Index, based on a monthly survey of 30 manufacturing executives by the Institute of Applied Research at CSU San Bernardino, was 55.3 in January, up from 51.7 the previous month. The index has been above 50, the level that suggests growth, for 25 consecutive months. Increases were reported in new orders and production, two key factors. But the employment index declined five points, to 46.7. suggesting employers were reticent in hiring new workers. It was the first time this measurement has been below 50 in more than two years. The sector employed an estimated 99,900 Inland Empire residents in December, according to state data. While several major job classifications saw job growth of close to or better than 3 percent in 2018, manufacturing had a more subdued 1.6 percent growth rate. Also, of the 30 factory managers who responded to the Cal State survey, about two-thirds said the local economy would not change in the next quarter. The remaining participants were evenly split, with 17 percent predicting a stronger economy and 17 percent saying it would weaken. Barbara Sirotnik, director of the CSU institute, said 22 percent were forecasting a stronger quarter a month earlier. A year ago, 54 percent predicted a better economy Respondents who were not identified but quoted in the report cited uncertainties in the economy based on a variety of factors, from global trade to banks that are more cautious in lending. “Tariffs are beginning to be a factor for inbound materials and outbound orders,” one executive wrote. “Also, there was slow action at customs because of the government shutdown.” Eugene Montanez, co-owner of Allegra Marketing, a Corona-based business that prints marketing material, said in an interview that caution is the key word in his business and those of his customers. “I don’t think anyone thinks the sky is falling, it’s just a matter of watching the bottom line,” Montanez said. “In our case, we have to be careful we don’t overhire and risk not being as profitable as we need to be.” County trade mission to South Korea San Bernardino County will send a trade mission to South Korea in April, an effort to connect local businesses with new export partners and provide a boost to the local economy. The trade mission will include one-on-one meetings between Inland Empire business leaders and South Korean executives who might be considering new investments in the United States. Local officials will also meet with their counterparts, with most of the meetings taking place in Seoul. Direct investment from South Korea into the United States has more than doubled in recent years and now is close to $41 billion. As a market for goods made in San Bernardino County, officials are eying South Korea’s interest in California products. In 2017, California exported more than $9.6 billion in goods to South Korea, making it the largest trading partner of any state. ONT website goes multilingual Ontario International Airport has added Spanish and Mandarin versions of its website, further expanding its marketing efforts. Diversifying its website with additional languages will make the airport easier to navigate for international passengers, airport CEO Mark Thorpe said in a statement. This will be extended to ONT’s other social media platforms as well. Translating marketing material in Mandarin has been strongly considered since China Airlines began daily nonstop service to Taiwan last March. Work starts on Menifee apartments Construction has begun on Artesa at Menifee Town Center, an apartment complex in the heart of the city.
