June Manufacturing Technology Orders Down 13.2%

Month's total of $355.4 million up 4.6 percent compared to May.

June U.S. manufacturing technology orders totaled $355.4 million according to AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology. This total, as reported by companies participating in the USMTO program, was down 13.2 percent from the June 2014 total of $409.7 million but up 4.6 percent when compared to May's total of $339.9 million.

“This monthly boost in orders is good news at face value, but belies an overall sense of concern in U.S. manufacturing,” said AMT President Douglas K. Woods. “There was noteworthy activity in the aerospace, off road/highway construction, automotive, and contract machining industries. But if not for a dozen or so standout orders from those industries, it could have been another down month. Economic uncertainty both here and internationally continues to cause concern and hesitation to invest in capital equipment, yet opportunities remain within several core industry sectors.”
