Something strange is afoot. In a week when we see another manufacturer reporting strong sales and healthy margins, our team is hearing about end-users taking longer and longer to make purchase decisions.
It seems that there's a significant level of uncertainty among equipment buyers, especially in North America. For many, it looks like it's just too hard to make decisions about significant capital investments.
Maybe it's the Trump factor, or rising tensions in North Korea, or even lingering uncertainty about the eventual impact of Brexit, but the talk on the sales floor certainly contradicts the optimism we're hearing from the manufacturers.
We can't help but wonder where it's headed.

"Amazon has acquired the rights to buy up to 23% of Plug Power and Walmart has agreed to buy 19%. Amazons involvement is to give it control over technology its competitors use, the same strategy they employed with Amazon Web Service. Automated warehousing is here now, and it doesn't suit the vast majority of users. And at any rate, many of the AGV's in these automated warehouses will need lithium or hydrogen power anyway.".
deadpan, Austria
"I have never understood why drive in racks that intrude into the operators area are permissible. Operators have little space to operate as defined by the rear posts or raised backrest and allowing racks to intrude into that space makes no sense with respect to safety of the operator. Clark ESM forklifts had reversible rear posts to allow for drive in racks but the operator has to lean away from the side of the machine to get into the racks.".
