I think all of us in the machine shop industry are a little concerned about what’s next. For some us we’ve seen an increase of work for our milling centers, where our lathe work has dramatically decrease. Some of seen just the opposite. Others I know are realizing an overall increase in their CNC machining.
But all Machine Shops are wondering what the machining will business we be like as we enter a new year with such an unstable economy. As a sales rep for John Prosock Machine I speak with many of our existing manufacturing customers as well as new companies that are looking to source out CNC mill and lathe machining. Some are slowing to the point where they are able to machine their own parts on their own milling centers or CNC lathes.
While others have seen their work load expand which is requiring them to pursue other machine shops to meet their growing internal demand. But everyone seems to be holding their breath to see what is next for the economy and how that will affect the manufacturing sector and the world of precision machining. At John Prosock Machine we are pulling out the stops.
We believe that this year will be one of the best ever. Certain sectors of the market are growing. We believe its our job to find out where the growth is and then position ourselves in front of the growing demand and thrive during these tough times.
