NAHAD Social Cause

Social Cause

Donors Like You Make This Possible

We banded together in the fight to provide clean, safe drinking water to people in need. Together we've raised over $17,000 through NAHAD's Social Cause initiative and because of your ongoing support, over 500 people will get access to clean water in Mozambique. You are amazing! 

Donate Today! 

We're Over Halfway There!

For those who have yet to contribute or would like to donate again, it's not too late - please consider making a tax deductible donation and help bring an end to the water crisis. Our goal is to raise an additional $5,000 by the end of 2017 and we're over halfway there! Raising this money will provide clean, safe drinking water to an additional 166 people in desperate need.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the NAHAD office at 1-800-624-2227 or email info@nahad.org.

November Trends Report - Double-Digit Growth Driven by Broad Based End Market Activity

Industry Trends Report

According to this month’s Industry Trends report, both sales and orders remained robust in October with broad based end market strength. Notably, oil and gas activity continues to be strong and other heavy industrial markets such as agriculture and mining appear to be improving as well. Participants are optimistic on growth in 2018 supported by robust end market activity and strong orders growth.

Sales growth increased 11% in October, which is inline with the 11% growth in 3Q and compares to 12% growth in September. Order growth was also up 11% in October, inline with year-to-date orders growth and modestly softer than the 12% growth in September. Initial expectations are for ~7% growth in 2018, which represents just a modest downtick from the 9% growth through the first 10 months of 2017.
