Manufacturing technology orders down in June

August 12, 2013 - June U.S. manufacturing technology orders totaled $426.83 million according to AMT - The Association For Manufacturing Technology. This total, as reported by companies participating in the USMTO program, was down 5.8% from May and down 5.7% when compared with the total of $452.75 million reported for June 2012. With a year-to-date total of $2,538.55 million, 2013 is down 5.7% compared with 2012.

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

“It’s typical for orders to experience a modest drop going into the summer months, and we’ve seen this lull in six of the past nine summers. It’s important to remember that in the overall picture, this is a very strong order level,” said Douglas K. Woods, AMT President. “Manufacturing is still the key area driving the economy. With durable goods orders at a record level of $244 billion in June, and the Purchasing Managers’ Index at 55, we expect manufacturing technology orders to hold steady through the end of the year.”

The United States Manufacturing Technology Orders (USMTO) report, compiled by the trade association 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 six geographic breakdowns of the United States.
