The U.S. manufacturing outlook looks promising for 2015 according to MAPI Foundation. “Manufacturing is expected to grow faster than the overall economy and aerospace production is starting to ramp up again. The forecast is predicted as 4.0% for manufacturing, 8.5% for computer and electronic products, and 3.8% for non-hi-tech manufacturing.”

Since 1998, we’ve partnered with manufacturers and have now over 3,000 customers. SFA was recognized as Predator Software’s number #1 dealer for 2014. We are proud to receive this award for multiple years in a row. We stand by Predator Software, a U.S. made product.
