Congrats to the Top Equipment Brands

Metal Center News will publish the full results of its annual Top 10 Service Center Equipment Brands Survey in the May print edition, but here’s an advanced peek at the winners.
For 2016, the top vote-getters in their respective product categories are:
• Coil Processing: Red Bud Industries
• Sawing: DoALL
• Cutting: Hypertherm
• Material Handling: Bushman Equipment

Each year, MCN surveys its service center readers on which brands of processing equipment they favor and would recommend to others planning a capital investment. The ranking is based simply on the number of votes each company receives. It is meant as an informal measure of brand preference, and does not attempt to rank companies by size or market share or to evaluate their products. It’s just one tool service centers may use to make future purchasing decisions. Rankings are often separated by a relatively small number of votes, so just making the Top 10 list indicates that each company has succeeded in delivering a high level of customer satisfaction. Our thanks to all the busy service center personnel who took the time to share their opinions.

The Top Brands ranking in the May issue will be accompanied by a capital spending report. As sources told MCN, equipment buyers remain fairly skittish about the economy. Most service centers are taking a cautious approach to their capital spending plans for 2016. Equipment makers are hopeful that the uptick in steel prices to start 2016 may trigger more capital spending later in the year. Perhaps now is the best time to upgrade and gain that competitive advantage, while others sit on the sidelines.
