Shipments to the Northeast rose by 2.7 percent, moving down to the third largest domestic market with 16.4 percent of domestic shipments in the second quarter.  The South had 13.8 percent of second quarter 2010 domestic shipments, with an increase of 7.9 percent from the previous quarter.

The Advanced Workholding Technology Group is comprised of AMT members that produce chucks, jaws, collets, vises, fixtures, and other workholding equipment.  The AWT operates as a forum to serve the interests of U.S. manufacturers of workholding equipment.  The overriding goal of the AWT is to develop ways to better serve the workholding customer, and to implement programs to help the workholding community in this endeavor.  While AWT members must be members of AMT, any OEM workholding manufacturer or U.S.-based company that is a sole distributor of a foreign-built workholding product line may participate in the AWT statistical program.
