DOUBLE DIP?

Nov 29, 2010

As we approach the end of 2010, we're wondering what 2011 holds for the various industries we serve. Our 2010 (ending Dec 31st) sales will close out with a 45% increase over 2009. However, between the currency market uncertainties, and state, federal and national debts, we're sensing mixed forecasts from our customer base. Our largest customers seem to be the most optimistic. Our smaller customers tend to be far less optimistic depending on their region and their marketplace. We're planning on growth in 2011, but more from increased market share than from customers increasing schedules. We still see too many of our customers with activity levels 30%, 40% and even 60% down from 2008 on a part-to-part comparison. Even so, we continue to operate with no debt, monthly profits, and heavy investment in energy savings, new inventory, new equipment, and new product lines. If you have a question about what we're seeing in your specific industry, drop me an email at mcr ("@" symbol) midwestcontrol (".com") (sorry, trying to avoid the spammers). I wish each and every one of you a wonderful Christmas and holiday season - Mark Rauschert.
