As we put Q1 of 2017 in the rearview mirror, what does Q2 look like going forward?
MORE, MORE AND BETTER!
More advanced machine tools, more talented people, and better results for our customers.
Let me first look back to the last quarter of 2016. Buyers leaned out their inventory as the world held its breath, watching the U.S. elections unfold. I can only characterize that time as one of overcapacity and uncertainty. This lethargic environment changed rapidly as we entered the new year, like a dragster coming off the line when the lights turn green.
