Key takeaways from my presentation:

  • Outlooks on the construction, agricultural, and power generation machinery industries.
  • Eli's own forecast for the machine tool market.


Eli S. Lustgarten is president of ESL Consultants and  a senior vice president at Longbow  Securities. Eli returns to GFMC to focus specifically on the construction and mining equipment industry with the addition of a machine tool forecast. Construction and mining is a specific interest because of the prolonged downturn in this area, which represents 9 to 15 percent of manufacturing technology orders.
