Texas Manufacturing Activity Picks Up in September

Texas factory activity expanded in September, according to business executives responding to the Texas Manufacturing Outlook Survey. The production index, a key measure of state manufacturing conditions, rose from 7.3 to 11.5, suggesting output increased at a slightly faster pace than in August.

Other measures of current manufacturing activity indicated continued growth in September. The capacity utilization index rose 6 points to a reading of 10.7. The new orders index was 5, largely unchanged from its August level. The shipments index edged down from 11.4 to 10.3.

Perceptions of broader business conditions improved further in September. The general business activity index jumped nearly 8 points to 12.8, its highest reading in a year and a half. The company outlook index posted a fourth consecutive positive reading and came in at 7.9, little changed from August.
