MHProNews has learned from the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) statistics compiled by the U. S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) show HUD Code manufacturers produced 4,221 homes in July of this year, a 14.8 percent increase from July 2011 when 3,676 homes were manufactured. This marks the twelfth straight month of industry increase. The 31,936 homes produced this year mark a 19 percent increase over the 26,828 homes manufactured in 2011. Once again, Texas ranks as the top shipment state with 10,107 homes, more than twice the number of units shipped to the state in second place, Louisiana, with 4,285.
