Manufacturing technology orders up 102.9% from 2010 (USMTO)

September 12, 2011 - July U.S. manufacturing technology orders totaled $506.97 million according to AMTDA, the American Machine Tool Distributors’ Association, and AMT - The Association For Manufacturing Technology.  This total, as reported by companies participating in the USMTO program, was up    7.3% from June and up 92.7% when compared with the total of $263.14 million reported for July 2010.  With a year-to-date total of $2,975.10 million, 2011 is up 102.9% compared with 2010.

These numbers and all data in this report are based on the totals of actual data reported by
companies participating in the USMTO program.

“The manufacturing beat goes on! Machine tool sales continue to exceed forecasts for 2011,” said Peter Borden, AMTDA President. “The stock market’s volatility and the traditional summer slowdowns as budgets are depleted were no match for the ongoing demand to get new machines into production as soon as possible. This pace will slow; but for USMTO 2011 so far, there are no signs of what we hear on the nightly news.”

The United States Manufacturing Technology Orders (USMTO) report, jointly compiled by the two trade associations representing the production and distribution of manufacturing technology, provides regional and national U.S. orders data of domestic and imported machine tools and related equipment. Analysis of manufacturing technology orders provides a reliable leading economic indicator as manufacturing industries invest in capital metalworking equipment to increase capacity and improve productivity.

U.S. manufacturing technology orders are also reported on a regional basis for five geographic breakdowns of the United States.
