Announcing the Conway Analytics Report & Conway Projects Database

ATLANTA, Sept 15, 2015 – Reflecting extensive redevelopment and new dimensions of strategic insight, Conway’s world-renowned New Plant & Expansion Report has been renamed the Conway Analytics Report. In addition, Conway's massively expanded proprietary database that serves as the report's main source has been renamed the Conway Projects Database.

Published since 1989, Conway’s subscription-only report — which tracks corporate facility locations and expansions worldwide — was relaunched in 2015 with an array of new features and insights. The response was immediate and enthusiastic. But something was still missing.

“The industry response to this product has been tremendous, but several subscribers noted that the former name was too limiting as it didn’t accurately convey the full breadth of data in the Report," said Adam Jones-Kelley, President of Conway, Inc. "We listened, and are proud to carry forward this new, more inclusive name, that better connects to a long-respected global company."

Among the new features in the Conway Analytics Report:

Lead Indicators
Amid the static of globalization, Conway now monitors signals that provide insight on corporate investment strategies. Conway Lead Indicators are pieces of intelligence that reflect a company’s intent and readiness to enter or expand its presence in new markets. Investment Leads by Region total a minimum of 100 per month and include top sectors and motives for growth. They help uncover strategic opportunities early in the company’s decision-making process and provide leverage to develop proactive strategies ahead of the competition. Leads are vital clues that help in understanding the direction in which today’s most competitive companies are heading.

Capacity Expansions
To offer a more comprehensive picture of global investment activity and local competitiveness, this report now includes capacity expansions, defined as non-construction investments that expand business or increase production capacity, such as the hiring of new employees, or the acquisition/update of machinery.

Investment Motives
For most projects, the report includes investment motives that clarify the decision-making process behind the site selection. This section highlights the competitive features of a location and the reasons why it has been chosen over competing locations: cost factors, skilled labor, infrastructure, territorial business climate, etc.

Statements gathered from executives and upper management through press releases, interviews, speeches and the exclusive reporting work of Conway's team of journalists provide insight into the direction today's top companies are moving.
