November U.S. manufacturing technology orders totaled $421.83 million according to AMT - The Association For Manufacturing Technology. This total, as reported by companies participating in the USMTO program, was down 11.0% from October and down 8.5% when compared with the total of $460.86 million reported for November 2011. With a year-to-date total of $5,212.17 million, 2012 was up 4.8% compared with 2011. These numbers and all data in this report are based on the totals of actual data reported by companies participating in the USMTO program.

“Orders for all of 2012 remain full steam ahead, likely on pace to pass the totals of 2011 and echoing the overall strength of manufacturing for the year,” said Douglas K. Woods, AMT President. “While economic uncertainty remains a concern for both businesses and consumers, we anticipate a steady, albeit slower growth for manufacturing as we begin 2013.”

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.
