April 2013 Industry Production up Significantly

MHARRWashington, D.C., June 3, 2013 – The Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) reports that according to official statistics compiled on behalf of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), manufactured housing production increased significantly during April 2013.  Just-released statistics for April 2013 indicate that HUD Code manufacturers produced 5,313 homes, an increase of 14.7% from the 4,630 HUD Code homes produced during April 2012.  Cumulative 2013 industry production now totals 18,173 homes, a 4.2% increase over the 17,429 homes produced over the same period in 2012.  This monthly increase is noteworthy because it reverses the trend toward slightly weaker production observed during February (+.1%) and March 2013 (-4.3%), and also restores cumulative production growth for 2013 – which had fallen to below 1% in March – to a healthier level that is more consistent with the increases noted during 2012.   

A further analysis of the official industry statistics shows that the top ten shipment states for the period of August 2011 through April 2013 — with cumulative shipment totals as indicated — are:

1. Texas ——————————– 18,068 homes

2. Louisiana —————————–  7,319 homes
