Sprovieri, John, "Wire Harness Assembly: Business Outlook" ASSEMBLY 20 April 2021. 

John looks back at the 2020 recession and provides an outlook for the wire harness assembly industry. Much of this comes from a presentation I gave to the Wiring Harness Manufacturer's Association (WHMA) in February. At that point I was optimistic, and since then, my forecast for 2021 and 2022 has improved. There are still a number of challenges. Supply chains are constrained and prices are rising across the board. COVID variants remain a risk even with mass vaccination, as we saw with the recent Kentucky nursing home outbreak. But the economic environment is improving.
