Legacy 2023 Media Kit 125 Year Anniversary 1898-2023

As we enter only our fifth year with the magazine, we certainly say that we are “standing on the shoulders of giants.” With that kind of legacy, we endeavor to continue the drive to make Brushware better every single day — striving to not only make the brand the best in the brush industry but also to make it the best media brand period. The mission for Brushware is not simply to modernize, our aim is to go beyond and forge new paths in the media arena to provide the brush community with a vital resource for connection and information.

Plans to celebrate the 125-year anniversary have been ongoing for more than a year and I am happy to have already made connections with a few key players in the history of Brushware. During those exchanges, I heard a couple of new stories and learned a few bits of history I didn’t know. I am excited to make more connections and follow through on our plan to showcase this milestone year with an article in each issue for 2023.

For part one of this 125-year celebration series, I was able to meet with the previous owner Norman Finegold, who now lives here in my home base of Kansas City. We were able to sit down for a lengthy catch-up and the full interview is available on page 14.

And while we will enjoy looking back, business is always moving forward. We are excited to see that the ABMA and FEIBP have announced Bologna, Italy, as the location for the new World Brush Expo to be held in May 2024. We look forward to promoting, attending and covering the event.

While we are aware that the global economy is facing severe challenges, we do thank all of our readers and advertisers for their support, and we hope our coverage helps provide guidance and inspiration. We are here to help all manufacturers and suppliers achieve success, so as always I welcome your feedback on how Brushware can help the industry move forward. Please enjoy this 125th Anniversary Special edition and have a Happy New Year!

World Brush Expo Set for Italy: May 22-24, 2024

The American Brush Manufacturers Association (ABMA) and the European Brushware Federation (FEIBP) are excited to announce the creation of a new show for the industry: World Brush Expo, which will take place May 22-24, 2024, at the Bologna Exhibition Centre in Bologna, Italy.

Donna Frendt, ABMA Executive Director says, “We have been working on this show since it became apparent at the ABMA meeting last March that Interbrush in Freiburg was untenable. Shortly after the completion of the ABMA convention, ABMA reached out to FEIBP to see if there was interest in putting on an industry show, by and for the industry.”

Since that time, a joint task force from the two associations has been working together to determine a pathway to create and hold an industry show. Fons Ceelaert, FEIBP Managing Director says, “The process to come together has been very good for both associations and we look forward to partnering with ABMA to make World Brush Expo THE show for the industry.”

The task force invited Daniel Strowitzki of FWTM (the owners of Interbrush) to make a presentation to continue the show in Freiburg and to submit a proposal for Salzburg, Austria. The task force and ABMA/FEIBP wish to thank Daniel Strowitzki, FWTM, and the Messe in Freiburg for 45 years of partnership and for the outstanding InterBrossa/Interbrush shows. In addition to the proposals from Freiburg and Salzburg, the task force entertained proposals from Bologna, Modena and Parma, Italy. Eventually, Bologna was selected as the host venue for 2024.

Greg Miller, ABMA President said, “I am very excited to see a new industry show arise from the ashes. It has been since

2016 that the entire industry has been able to get together and I think I speak for everyone when I say that this will be a great event for the industry and I can’t wait for 2024!”

Andrew McIlroy added, “The Bologna venue is world-class and Bologna is a fascinating city and will appeal to attendees from all over the world. In addition, their infrastructure is excellent for our show; attendees and exhibitors alike will enjoy the variety of hotel accommodations and the easy logistics of the Bologna site.”

The Bologna Exhibition Centre covers 375,000 square meters of indoor and external areas. Its exhibition services area covers 36,000 square meters. The venue has 20 halls which are fully wired, air-conditioned and equipped with state-of-the-art IT systems. Multiple events can be held simultaneously thanks to five separate entrances. Flexibility and mobility are ensured by a network of walkways and by a system of carparks for a total of 14,500 covered parking spaces. Vehicle owners can reserve their space in advance. Bologna Fiere is the first exhibition center with its own motorway tollbooth, that provides direct entrance to the venue. A “BolognaFiere” railway station handles special trains for exhibitions with a large number of visitors. A heliport is located on the roof of halls 16-18.

Bologna is one of Italy’s great and historic cities. It has a major airport (BLQ) and supports over 13,000 hotel rooms in the city. The exhibition center is near the city center making for convenient logistics. Bologna is home to the oldest university in Europe and has many nearby attractions for attendees and visitors alike.

YOUR BRUSH DESERVES THE BEST FILAMENTS

DUPONT FILAMENTS CONTINUES T O L EAD THE WAY IN INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS

For more than 80 years, DuPont Filaments has been recognized as a leader in innovative synthetic filaments that enable brush manufacturers to address emerging trends and meet evolving consumer expectations.

HEALTH DESERVES THE BEST FILAMENTS -TOOTHBRUSH FILAMENTS

The most important component of a toothbrush lies in the bristle. With outstanding industry expertise accumulated over the years, coupled with our proven technologies, DuPont Filaments is dedicated to the oral care brush industry with our nylon solutions under the brand names of DuPont™ Tynex®(nylon 612) and DuPont™ Herox®(nylon 610) . Leading toothbrush brands and manufacturers are able to produce very high quality brushes with a balance of consistent quality, wear performance and unmatched productivities in tufting and end-rounding by using DuPont filaments. As consumer trends in toothbrush are increasingly focused on the six major areas of 1) Visual Attractiveness, 2) Interdental Cleaning, 3) Plaque Removal, 4) Gum Comfort, 5) Gingival Cleaning and 6) Anti-microbial within the filaments, DuPont Filaments has been working closely with the leading global brands in oral care as well as toothbrush manufacturers by fulfilling these needs with our broad range of innovative products in the portfolio

BEAUTY DESERVES THE BEST FILAMENTS -FINE FILAMENTS

DuPont™ Natrafil® filaments, a pioneering filament from DuPont’s unique polyester based material, contain proprietary texturizing additives that create a structured surface that mimics animal hair. Natrafil® filaments offer a synthetic alternative to animal hair in premium cosmetic powder brushes with more consistency in the bristle while maintaining the touch-and-feel of premium animal hair. Studies have shown that brushes made with Natrafil® filaments have equal to superior pickup and release performance versus brushes made with animal hair.

EFFICIENCY DESERVES THE BEST FILAMENTS –ABRASIVE FILAMENTS

Like most industries, steel manufacturers are always looking for

ways to increase productivity. The emphasis is on getting more square feet of metal through the mill, cleaned and coated faster than ever before. To accomplish this, steel mills are using more aggressive cleaning solutions. The problem is that the cleaning brushes typically used were quickly degrading because many plastics used in the brush filaments can’t handle the solutions of the extremes of the PH scale. The technical resources at DuPont Filaments were able to help solve the problem by adding stabilizers to one of our nylon polymer formulations, effectively extending the pH range that these filaments can be used in. Brushes made with these filaments deliver cleaning performance over an improved service life, helping steel manufactures to achieve higher productivity. Another need voiced by customers is higher aggressiveness in metal finishing applications. DuPont™ Tynex® A filaments, a family of ceramic grit-containing filaments, was developed to meet this need.

CREATIVITY DESERVES THE BEST FILAMENTS –PAINTBRUSH FILAMENTS

When manufacturers began changing their paints to water-based formulations, more people began using paintbrushes made with synthetic bristles because the hog bristles traditionally used in paintbrushes lost stiffness in water-based paints. Synthetics such as DuPont™ Tynex®, DuPont™ Chinex® and DuPont™ Orel® brand filaments quickly became popular choices. As paint manufacturers continue to improve their water-based formulations by reducing volatile organic compound (VOC) content, increasing solid loadings and decreasing drying times, there is an ongoing need for increasingly higher performing brushes. To meet this need, DuPont Filaments continues to innovate and help customize solutions. For example, we developed filaments with stiffer cross-section that can push higher viscosity paints more efficiently. We also changed the shapes of the filaments so that they not only pick up more paint from the can for faster application, but are easier to clean.

Recognition for being the global leader in filaments comes from our customers. You inspire us to make a difference in the world. We will continue to advance our innovations because we believe your BRUSH deserves the best FILAMENTS.

ABMA To Hold Webinar on Downtime Tips

The ABMA’s Webinar Series is scheduled to resume in January with Downtime Tips presented by Adam Moran, Vice President for Sales of Vorne Industries, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, January 25, 2023.

Downtime continues to be a huge source of lost productivity for the vast majority of manufacturers, but downtime is also often where the biggest gains can be made. Vorne knows that companies have the resources to improve, but they need the tools to leverage their resources, and this starts with understanding the corporate strategy. Vorne works with leaders at multiple levels of manufacturing companies to implement technology to turbo-charge continuous improvement and change management initiatives.

With more than twenty years of projects across thousands of companies in dozens of countries, Moran has helped companies, analyze, quantify and optimize stalled or failing continuous improvement initiatives through data and process change. Through this ABMA webinar, Moran will present ten simple and practical strategies for reducing downtime to help brush manufacturers regain lost productivity.

Hillbrush Centenary Celebration Continues With New Warehouse

Hillbrush, the U.K.’s largest manufacturer of brushes and specialist cleaning tools, has rounded off a year of centenary celebrations with the official opening of a new warehouse and planting of a commemorative tree at Wiltshire headquarters. The new environmentally friendly “Centenary Warehouse” was declared officially open by Rt Hon Dr. Andrew Murrison, MP for Southwest Wiltshire, at a special reception held on Friday, November 18, 2022, for Hillbrush customers and suppliers. The celebratory event offered a hog roast, tours of the brush manufacturing facility and a chance to network with colleagues in the brush-making industry.

Hillbrush’s new 1,800 square meter Centenary Warehouse will provide the company with significantly more space to hold product on site and therefore ensure high stock availability to customers. Hillbrush currently manufactures more than 2,000 product lines at Mere. In line with Hillbrush’s focus on building a sustainable and environmentally friendly business, lighting inside the warehouse is movement activated to reduce energy and provide cost efficiency.

Hillbrush’s milestone birthday was also marked by the planting of a Redwood tree at the front of the offices by company Chairman, Philip Coward. Hillbrush was founded in 1922 by Fred and Bill Coward, Philip’s father and uncle. Today, Hillbrush is still independent, familyowned and run with Philip’s

son, Charlie Coward, and nephew, Andy Coward, as current joint managing Directors.

“Who would have thought when Fred and Bill Coward set up the original Hill Brush Company in 1922 to serve the needs of the many farms and agricultural businesses surrounding Mere that we would be celebrating 100 years on,” says Charlie Coward. “Hillbrush is a British manufacturing institution that has stayed true to its family values while innovating and diversifying to stay ahead of the times. It was a delight to celebrate the company’s centenary with our loyal customers and suppliers. We were delighted that our local MP the Rt Hon Dr. Murrison was able to share the day with us and officially open our new warehouse.”

Global Shop Solutions Employees Celebrated As Emerging Leaders By NTMA

Developing homegrown leaders is one of the most important things companies can do to pave the way for continued success. Global Shop Solutions, a global leader in ERP software for manufacturers, is proud to announce Cynthia Ashby and Ryan Carpenter were identified as Emerging Leaders by the National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA).

NTMA is a U.S.-based trade association with 1,200 tool and die and precision manufacturing companies representing more than $35 billion in sales. Each year NTMA selects 15 individuals for recognition in the association’s Emerging Leaders Rising program. This program recognizes the hard work and accomplishments of future leaders in manufacturing.

“We’re very proud to have Cynthia and Ryan on our team,” says Dusty Alexander, President and CEO of Global Shop Solutions. “Cynthia attained her current position as Manager of the Financial Data Analysis Team by earning the respect, admiration and trust of senior leaders, supervisors, fellow employees and customers. As an operations consultant on our Continuous Improvement Team, Ryan has greatly impacted our customers by continuously helping them improve their fluency with our software and resolving issues from quote to cash. It’s employees like Cynthia and Ryan that have made Global Shop Solutions great today and into the future.”

Each Emerging Leaders class is profiled in The Record, NTMA’s Monthly Precision Manufacturing Magazine and are invited to attend Manufacturing Engage — the annual precision manufacturing conference — where they are recognized on stage during the awards ceremony. They are also invited to attend the annual Emerging Leaders Conference where they can connect with each other and continue to develop their leadership skills.

“It’s an honor to receive this award, but I wouldn’t be where I am today without the guidance of others,” says Ashby. “Becoming an Emerging Leader has motivated me to work harder and continue growing in my career while helping others succeed.”

“I am honored to be chosen as an Emerging Leader,” says Carpenter. “Every day I do my best to ensure our customers’ needs are met, and I hope to pioneer a path for new hires by demonstrating the effectiveness of young leaders.”

PEOPLE

Norman Finegold

As part of our 125th-anniversary celebration, Brushware is offering an article related to the history of the magazine in each edition for 2023. For our first installment in the series, we present the following interview with the magazine’s previous owner, Norman Finegold.

Age: 74

Current Location: Fairway, Kansas (Kansas City Metro)

Role with Brushware: Owner from 1999 to 2019

How did you get into publishing?

When I graduated college, I went to work for Arthur Andersen, which was a big public accounting firm and I hated the life of a public accountant. I then got a job with a company called Cadence Industries as a corporate analyst — going into the divisions and doing internal audits. I was assigned to the publishing divisions and one of their divisions was Marvel Comics. The other company was Magazine Management. They were both in the same building on Madison Avenue in New York City. About two years later, they fired the controller of Marvel and put me in that role. So I was the controller of Marvel Comics for about five years. At the time, they didn’t do anything with movies, but they would produce 60 comic books a month — from Captain America to Hulk to Spiderman. I reported to Stan Lee.

Then, before buying Brushware, I moved around to various other publishing companies. I worked for Worldwide Magazines, which was the biggest exporter of US magazines. I was a controller there for a number of years but I got sick and tired of corporate America.

I married my wife, Karen, in June 1999. She had no experience whatsoever in magazine publishing but was game to learn. So we went out and bought Brushware magazine. Karen was the designer and did everything except, magazine sales, advertising sales and subscriptions. We became a good team and so in 2004, we bought a second trade publication called the American Window Cleaner Magazine

From the day-to-day perspective, what was your favorite part of working on Brushware?

My favorite part was working with the advertisers, they were so nice. I didn’t enjoy the actual travel to conventions, but once I was there I so enjoyed mingling with the advertisers. Yeah, I was there to sell advertising, but it was also wonderful just to BS with them.

From a day-to-day standpoint, it was always a challenge to keep an advertiser in or try to get a new one, and I sort of enjoyed that.

What would you say was the strength of Brushware during your time running the magazine?

Well, we had the highest circulation, so we had the strength of circulation and also the strength of great editorial. We focused on what we thought our advertisers and subscribers wanted to read, and I think that separated us.

Is there anything about the Brushware workflow/process that might come as surprise to readers and advertisers?

There was a lot of conversation and discussion about what articles to run. The editorial calendar took a lot more time than I think any advertiser or reader

would really realize. Bob Lawrence, Mark Battersby and every single writer would contribute ideas for what we should do each August. Karen and I would do that as well. Then Karen and I sat down and looked it all over, and I would ultimately decide which stories we would go with.

What have you been doing since moving on from Brushware?

I got myself involved in umpiring for high school baseball, which I totally love. I started with the lower-grade kids and got frustrated. However, at the same time that I was frustrated, it was imperative I learn the rules better than I knew. When I started, my knowledge of baseball and the rules came from watching the Yankees play baseball on TV, but there were so many more rules that I had to learn. There are so many rules that I probably still don’t know.

Now I’m doing a lot of seventh through 12th-grade baseball games and the higher you go, the more competitive is. It’s just wonderful, I so enjoy it.

I also do volunteer work at the University of Kansas Health System at the Cancer Center on Friday mornings. I have a beverage cart for the patients and families … they’re there for chemo or other treatments. The funniest thing happened to me while I was doing that. When somebody asks me for a cup of coffee, I say, “How do you take it?” Normally, the answer is black or one cream, 2 sugars, Sweet and Low, or something like that. About two months, a guy asked me for a coffee and I said, “How do you take it?” He said, “In a cup.”

I’ve also been going to grandkids’ soccer games and basketball games, watching them grow up. That’s fun. When I grew up, no one played soccer. I grew up in New York City, so … you know, we had beaches and we had other stuff to do. There are no beaches here in Kansas or Missouri, as you know, and the sports here are just amazing. It’s every sport in the world and they play it and everybody plays.

Is there anything about the current Brushware that stands out to you?

I love the publisher’s page. I like the length of it, the detail of it and you know, and I’m enjoying the articles.

What are your thoughts on Brushware celebrating 125 years?

Well, it’s absolutely amazing that the magazine is that old and I’m so happy that I was a part of the history of Brushware. I’m happy that you’re doing well with it and that I passed the baton to somebody who took it and is running with it. Karen and I were happy to be part of the industry and to meet some wonderful, wonderful people.

Supply Chain Disruption Has Become an Excuse

Only the Proactive Will Thrive in 2024

The supply chain has become an excuse. Although there has certainly been a slew of supply chain challenges that carry on with baby formula shortages, rail backlogs, computer chip issues, hurricane-induced delays, fertilizer scarcity and China’s zero-COVID policy delays, the supply chain should no longer be the excuse. Only the proactive will thrive in the years to come.

Start with the simple. Assess your end-to-end supply chain. Focus on your strengths and identify what must be shored up quickly, or should you completely change your supply chain strategy to better support your target customers’ needs? Why invest money in the bottom 20% of your customers or products that utilize precious resources that should be invested to take market share in what will be the largest opportunity since the Great Depression to solidify your position in your industry?

Instead, identify your target customers and ideal future state customers. Determine which products and services will meet their needs this year, next year and five years from now. Quickly assess a directionally correct path forward, and incorporate these findings into your SIOP (Sales, Inventory, Operations Planning, also known as S&OP) process. Your SIOP process will provide clarity on changes in customer demand patterns, the potential misalignment of demand and supply, decisions required (such as pricing and the reallocation of capacity) and manufacturing and supply chain adjustments needed to support your growth and profitability goals.

If you are heavily reliant on manufacturing in other countries, it is time to reevaluate. How confident are you that you will be able to support your key customers? Most likely, you should assess reshoring, nearshoring, friendly-shoring, expanding capacity or simply finding new partners closer to your customers. You must gain control over your ability to execute to support your customer’s needs.

Collaborate with your supply chain partners. Partner with customers in unique and creative ways for win-win solutions. For example, when working as VP of Operations for a mid-market manufacturer, we partnered with our number two customer to share demand information, coordinate agreements to share warehouse space and build collaborative truckloads. Rethink how to partner with customers and suppliers.

Evaluate your use of technology. Although more than 90 percent of clients can better leverage their ERP system and related technologies to a greater degree to drive customer service, on-time-in-full (OTIF), profitability and working capital improvements, it is no longer enough. Upgrading to a modern ERP system with advanced data analytics and business intelligence capabilities has become the new baseline to automate, digitize, predict and provide a superior customer experience. It is likely you’ll need to think bigger with artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT), additive manufacturing and digital twins.

Stop using the supply chain as an excuse and start acting. There is no doubt the world is disrupted and will not realign on its own. Only the resilient and strong will survive, but most importantly, only the proactive and forward-thinking will thrive. Get ahead of the supply chain disruptions, or better yet, be disruptive and solidify your market position and EBITDA strength.

COMPANY: Pennelli Cinghiale

LOCATION: Cicognara-Mantova-Italy

TITLE: Managing Director

When did you start working in this industry and how did you get started?

My career started in 2004, but I have practically lived and breathed Pennelli Cinghiale since I was born. Ours is a traditional Italian family-run business that was founded in 1945 with the bold and visionary undertaking of my grandfather.

What aspect of working in the paintbrush industry do you enjoy the most?

The perfect balance between technique and creativity, which has allowed us, through years of experience, to develop a global brand that designs all the products necessary for painting.

What aspect of Pennelli Cinghiale makes you the most proud?

We have been acknowledged as a historic brand of national interest for Italy, and we have created a company museum where our history intertwines with pop art.

What are the main challenges you have faced in recent years and how is Pennelli Cinghiale facing them?

The main and constant challenge is to keep up with the development of paints. Chemical formulas are constantly evolving and we have to design products that are always up-to-date in order to achieve the best performance for their application. A good paint is not enough; you need a suitable tool to achieve perfect results, especially for professionals, who represent our main target group.

Do you foresee any permanent changes for Pennelli Cinghiale and the paintbrush industry in general?

The world of paints is moving more and more towards water-based formulations, requiring increasingly detailed research into synthetic filaments, which are the best to use with this type of formulation, and high-tech materials for a quick and easy application. Another essential aspect is the choice of components: we are now heading towards the use of FSC wood, recyclable plastic and recycled plastic.

ELEONORA CALAVALLE

Are there any news or initiatives taking place at Pennelli Cinghiale that you would like to share with us?

Over the past few years, we have invested heavily in research into new synthetic filaments which can guarantee the excellent performance of our paintbrushes with new-generation paints. Each filament mixture is produced – and their application is tested – in our laboratories. We are very proud of the results we have obtained, which is why we are very keen to protect our “recipes,” as in the case of Boartex®: a high-performance filament mixture that guarantees extraordinary results with both water and solvent-based paints.

The recruitment of skilled labor in general and young workers has been said to be a concern for the industry. In your opinion, how should this problem be addressed?

We have such a strong connection with our area, which is the industrial paintbrush and brush district, that this problem has never arisen. We have staff from different generations of the same family who have chosen to continue working with us; this is very important as well as significant.

Do you have any key advice in terms of business/leadership for young people whose aim is to reach a leadership role in this industry?

Develop a deep technical knowledge by listening to experience, but be brave enough to dare and innovate. Invest in digital even for a seemingly simple product like a paintbrush. Today’s consumers live in the digital world and they collect information before making any purchase decisions. This is why it is important to create strong cross-selling within the painting industry so that nobody is disappointed by the wrong toolpaint combination.

Does Pennelli Cinghiale participate or attend international trade fairs?

This year, Pennelli Cinghiale attended the EISENWARENMESSE International Hardware Fair in Cologne, one of the main events for our industry. On this occasion, we presented new products that we have designed according to international building trends and based on the technical requirements of different countries, with a special focus on environmental impact.

What do you like to do when you are not at work?

I am a contemporary art lover, perhaps because art is the most creative and lofty result originating from a paintbrush. I cannot

help but try to imagine the brush stroke and the artist’s gesture lying behind each mark on the canvas.

Do you have any pop culture favorites?

I love attending live shows and I have missed them a lot over the past two years. I caught up with summer concerts: from Tears for Fears and Ben Harper to Dua Lipa and Lady Gaga. The energy you feel when listening to live music cannot be compared to streaming on Spotify.

Are there any sports or teams you like to follow?

My favorite team is our team of Cinghiale professionals. Joking aside, our brand has had strong connections with excellent sports teams, my grandfather being a super fan. Our museum still houses important memorabilia of Inter FC since my grandfather was a huge fan, as well as that of the great cycling champions.

Do you have any advice for business trips?

Yes! Never forget a piece of Parmesan cheese in your luggage for your customer, it is the best gift you can give! Everyone appreciates the real taste of Italy.

Can you tell us one thing about you that people might find surprising?

I am a young woman, isn’t that enough for this industry?

What have you learned in life or in the industry?

People are stronger than products. Creating excellent products designed and manufactured in Italy is what Pennelli Cinghiale has been doing in the factory every day since 1945; but above all, I have learned that being a partner to your customer and not just a supplier makes the real difference.

Is there any question or topic we have not covered that you would like to comment on?

Pennelli Cinghiale can count on a strong heritage thanks to TV advertising, which is still alive in the Italian culture. My grandfather started right after the Second World War and now we are the third generation of a family-run business based on ethics and reliability. Today our goal is to bring the company to the international market with high-quality Made-in-Italy products, 4.0 production technology and digital marketing.

Forecast 2023

Gathering Clouds and Growing Turbulence

The economy will slow perceptively in 2023. Less robust activity in sectors such as housing, retailing and manufacturing will put downward pressure on growth and contribute to a deceleration in profits. Companies can prepare for a tougher environment by tracking cash flow closely, investing selectively and hiring prudently.

Businesses are preparing for a more challenging operating environment in 2023. After two years of frenetic commercial activity fueled by a post-pandemic recovery, strengthening headwinds will tap the brakes on a robust economy. Among the culprits: rising inflation, higher interest rates, a softening housing market, continuing supply chain disruptions, declining capital investments and escalating costs for wages and energy.

The loss of some helpful economic initiatives is only adding to the downward pressure. “Government stimulus packages, ultra-low interest rates and strong money supply creation had been helping to compel business activity until mid2022,” says Anirban Basu, Chairman and CEO of Sage Policy Group (www. sagepolicy.com). “All those fundamentals have been inverted.”

Economists are adjusting their forecasts to reflect the new normal. “We project real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) will increase by 1.4% in 2023,” says Bernard Yaros Jr., Assistant Director and Economist at Moody’s Analytics (www.economy.com). “The expectation for 2022 is 1.6%. Both figures represent much slower activity than the 5.7% increase of 2021.” (GDP, the total of the nation’s goods and services, is the most commonly accepted measure of economic growth. “Real” GDP adjusts for inflation.)

22 | www.brushwaremag.com

All of the above conditions should have a depressing effect on corporate profits, projected by Moody’s Analytics to increase at a 5.2% clip in 2023. That represents a decline from the 7.9% figure anticipated for 2022. Both estimates are much lower than the 25% increase of 2021.

Strong Employment

Reports from the field reflect early glimmers of a less robust business environment. “In the first half of 2022 many of our members were still experiencing high demand,” says Tom Palisin, Executive Director of The Manufacturers’ Association, a York, Pa., based regional organization with more than 390 member companies (www.mascpa.org). “But as the year progressed there was a significant slowdown caused by the labor shortage, inflationary issues and global events.”

With its diverse membership in food processing, defense, fabrication and machinery building, Palisin’s association is something of a proxy for all American industry. The good news is that a strong employment environment at the association’s members — as well as at companies elsewhere in the nation — is helping alleviate the negative impact of the economy’s headwinds. Moody’s Analytics expects a continuation of that favorable condition, forecasting an unemployment rate of 4.1% by the end of 2023. That’s not much higher than the 3.7% rate of late 2022. (Many economists peg an unemployment rate of between 3.5% and 4.5% as the “sweet spot” that balances the risks of wage escalation and economic recession).

On the downside, low unemployment usually increases business costs by forcing employers to boost wages to attract scarce workers. Today is no exception. “Our organization surveys members annually on their baseline entry-level hourly wage figure,” says Palisin. “Increases typically run around 2.5% to 3%, but the figure was 8% in 2022.” While Moody’s Analytics forecasts a continuation of labor cost increases, they should moderate to 3.5% in 2023, down from their current 5%. Even so, those increases are expected to affect business profitability.

Worker Shortage

The tight labor market hits business profitability not only in the form of higher wages but also in a scarcity of the very workers needed to produce goods and services. “Employers will be very focused on labor availability in 2023 as Baby Boomers continue to retire and the supply of immigrant labor has yet to fully recover from severe pandemic-related disruptions,” says Yaros. “Despite a slowing economy, layoffs are low, indicating that businesses are holding onto labor in a reaction to the hiring difficulties they encountered during the pandemic.”

When will workforce availability increase? Not anytime soon, say observers. “The labor market is going to be tight for years to come,” says Bill Conerly, Principal of his own consulting firm in Lake Oswego, Oregon (www.conerlyconsulting.com). “The decade from 2020 to 2030 is expected to have the lowest growth of working age population since the Civil War. One reason is the retirement of the Baby Boomers; another is the low rate of immigration over the last few years.”

Palisin agrees that a labor shortage is going to be a long-term condition and says his members are making moves to lessen the effect. “Employers are trying to be creative in the way they keep and retain workers not only by offering higher salary rates but also by extending benefits and encouraging work flexibility. They are also investing more in automation for labor-intensive tasks.”

Will We Have a Recession?

The accompanying article suggests an economic slowdown as the likeliest scenario for 2023. But what are the chances of a recession or an actual decline in business activity?

While Moody’s Analytics sets the odds at 50-50, avoiding a recession will require a bit of luck. “The U.S. economy will enter 2023 being vulnerable to anything that might go wrong,” says Bernard Yaros Jr., Assistant Director and Economist at Moody’s Analytics (www.economy.com). He pointed to risks such as a resurgence of the pandemic in China, a worsening of the Ukraine war and another energy supply shock that would hit consumer pocketbooks.

“Avoiding a recession will also depend on a couple of things going right,” adds Yaros. “The ebullient labor market will need to cool down at a pace that softens wage increases without sparking economic turmoil. Most important, the Federal Reserve will need to successfully tame inflation without allowing interest rates to spike the economy.”

Yaros, however, is optimistic. “We think inflation will steadily slow from more than 8% to a pace that is consistent with the central bank’s 2% target by the end of 2023.”

Retail Slowdown

If high employment levels can stress the bottom lines of many employers, they can also fill workers’ pockets with spendable cash and flush consumers can help drive a robust retail sector, an important slice of the economic pie. “Wage rates, as measured by the Employment Cost Index (ECI), remain very high by the standards of the last couple of decades,” says Scott Hoyt, Senior Director of Consumer Economics for Moody’s Analytics (www.economy.com).

Even so, activity is decelerating at the nation’s stores. “2023 is likely to be a challenging year for retail, with growth only at 2.8%,” says Hoyt. The projected growth is well below the sector’s historic 4.3% average as well as the 8.3% increase expected when 2022 numbers are finally tallied. The recent trend is well below 2021 when a 17.5% increase was fueled by a consumer shift away from services and toward goods.

A slowing economy is contributing to retail’s deceleration, as is a penchant for post-pandemic consumers to shell out less cash on merchandise and more on services such as hotels, travel and restaurants. Any softening of inflation from recent highs should also depress results since retail activity is measured in nominal terms.

Supply Chain Disruptions

Higher wages and scarce workers are not the only forces depressing business profits. Another major factor is a rise in interest rates — the Fed’s favorite tool for fighting inflation. “The purpose of increasing interest rates is to drive down demand,” says Palisin. “So, our members are expecting to see a decrease in new orders that will impact the overall economy. Also, many of our companies have lines

of credit that rely on floating interest rates. Rising rates will take a hit to the bottom line as companies decide whether to utilize those lines to support their cash flow and investments.”

Adding further downward pressure are disruptions in the delivery of goods that continue to plague companies large and small. “Supply chain problems have improved over the past year, but there hasn’t been the significant resolution we had hoped for,” says Palisin. “Random shortages in materials and deliveries are still plaguing our members and that’s leading to backlogging of orders; companies just can’t get the materials or parts.”

The Russia-Ukraine war has worsened the situation, notes Palisin. “The war has created an energy crunch and a disruption in raw materials from that region that have trickled through the economy to exacerbate the supply chain issues.” Companies are responding by moving to reduce their reliance on China, he adds. “They’re sourcing from additional countries to reduce disruptions.”

Housing Headwinds

Housing, a key driver of the economy, has also entered a period of correction. “The underlying dynamics of the housing market are changing as lower affordability spurred by higher prices and mortgage rates is starting to significantly weigh on demand,” says Yaros.

Limited affordability is discouraging consumers from signing on the bottom line. Median prices for existing single-family homes are expected to increase by 11.5% when 2022 figures are finally tallied. That comes off a strong 18% increase in 2021. Any relief will only come in 2023 when prices should decline by 2.6%. While 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022 2023

Economists expect growth to slow in 2023.

affordability has sunk to its lowest level since late 2007, the 30-year fixed mortgage rate is within striking distance of its highest level in over a decade, leading to a decline in purchase applications.

A tight housing supply is only adding to upward pricing pressure. The inventory of for-sale homes remains historically low and new ones will be scarce on the ground. “We expect housing starts to fall by 1.8% and 2% in 2022 and 2023 respectively,” says Yaros. “This compares with a 15.1% increase in 2021.”

There’s only so much the industry can do to bolster the housing supply — one big reason being the above-mentioned labor shortage. “The unemployment rate for experienced construction workers is about as low as it’s ever been,” said Yaros. “Capacity limits have delayed housing completions and contributed to a record number of housing units in the pipeline.”

One bright spot in the housing picture: mortgage credit quality has never been better. “The percent of loans delinquent and in foreclosure is at a record low,” says Yaros. “This goes to the stellar underwriting standards since the financial crisis and borrowers’ credit scores are much higher.” While lending standards for mortgage loans are now tightening, the credit spigot is unlikely to seize up as it did during the financial crisis of 2008.

Looking Ahead

Given the above concerns, it’s little wonder corporate confidence is taking a hit. As the calendar turns to a new year, companies are responding to soaring interest rates and inflation by scaling back the capital investments that help fuel the economy. “Up until the second

half of 2022 most companies were taking advantage of low rates to plan ahead for equipment purchases and expansion opportunities,” says Palisin. “Now, though, many are taking second looks at anything planned for 2023.”

Businesses are also taking steps to increase their liquidity to cushion against tough times. “We are all going to need to watch our cash flow,” says Palisin. “Most of our members anticipate a slowdown in orders; and as a result, they are holding off on some future investments and pulling back in hiring.”

Uncertainty is the name of the game, and that makes planning difficult. “We are faced with a kind of a two-sided coin,” says Palisin. “The positive side represents strong current orders and a continuing need for more workers; while the negative side represents inflationary pressures and global headwinds.”

Which side of the coin will show its face in 2023? Economists advise watching a few key indicators. “In the early part of the year companies should keep an eye on what is happening with the cost of money,” says Basu of Sage Policy Group. “Inflation is the driver of near-andmedium term economic outlooks.” A second vital element, he says, is the employment picture. “Employers should watch for any emerging weakness in the labor market.” Finally, what about consumers? “Any softening of spending would point to a looming recession.”

US Manufacturing PMI Below 50 Percent for November

Indian Manufacturing PMI edges up to remain in growth territory for 17th straight month

The November Institute for Supply Management® Report On Business® reported a PMI reading of 49 percent for U.S. manufacturers which represented a move into contraction territory for the first time since May 2020. The new figure supported an overall downward trend that started in November of 2021 for U.S. manufacturers.

“Manufacturing contracted in November after expanding for 29 straight months,” says Timothy R. Fiore, Chair of the ISM® Manufacturing Business Survey Committee. “Panelists’ companies continue to judiciously manage hiring. Other than October 2022, the month-over-month supplier delivery performance was the best since February 2012, when it registered 47 percent. Material lead times declined approximately nine percent from the prior month and approximately 18 percent over the last four months. Managing head counts and total supply chain inventories remain primary goals. Order backlogs, prices and now lead times are declining rapidly, which should bring buyers and sellers back to the table to refill order books based on 2023 business plans.”

Survey panelists reported new softening of new order rates over the previous six months with the November composite PMI (purchasing manager index) figure indicating that companies are preparing for lower output in the future. Demand eased,

with new orders remaining in contraction territory and the new export orders index registering below 50 percent for a fourth consecutive month. The customer inventory index was effectively in “just right” territory, as it climbed 7.1 percentage points. Order backlogs decreased and employment fell as panelists say companies are managing headcount through a combination of hiring freezes, employee attrition and now layoffs. The supplier delivery index indicated faster deliveries and the inventories expanded at a slower rate as panelists’ companies continued to manage the total supply chain inventory.

ISM® REPORT COMMENTS (US Manufacturers)

“General economic uncertainty has created a slowdown in orders as we approach the end of the year; and many of our key customers are reducing their capital expenditures spend.”

Machinery

“The market remains consistent: sales match expectations; there are concerns about the impact of rising interest rates on customers; most suppliers have recovered on labor, but some are still struggling; and inflation seems to have peaked, but commodity price decreases have not been passed through to us. Lots of unknowns regarding impact to the European Union from the Russia-Ukraine war and questions about customer behavior in 2023.” Miscellaneous Manufacturing

“Future volumes are on a downward trend for the next 60 days.” Chemical Products

“Looking into December and the first quarter of 2023, business is softening as uncertain economic conditions lie ahead.”

Plastics and Rubber Products

“Slight improvement on overall business conditions from the previous month.”

Primary Metals

“Customer demand is softening, yet suppliers are maintaining high prices and record profits. Pushing for cost reductions based on market evidence has been surprisingly successful.”

Computer and Electronic Products

“Orders for transportation equipment remain strong. Supply chain issues persist, with a minimal direct effect on output.”

Transportation Equipment

“Consumer goods are slowing down in several of our markets, although the U.S. economy seems decent. Cannot say the same for the European economy.”

Food, Beverage and Tobacco Products

“Overall, things are worsening. Housing starts are down. We’re doing well against our competitors, but the industry overall is down. We’re sitting on cash (that is) tied up in inventory.”

Electrical Equipment, Appliances and Components

“There is caution going into 2023, but the commercial section of construction seems to still be going strong.”

Nonmetallic Mineral Products

GLOBAL MANUFACTURING

EUROPE: The S&P Global Eurozone Manufacturing PMI for November was reported as 47.1 percent, which did represent a move up from the October reading of 47.3 percent (the lowest since May 2020). Despite the uptick, it represented a fifth straight month of falling factory activity as output continued to shrink and the incoming orders dropped off with demand decreasing. That eased inflationary pressure, but companies in Europe offered a pessimistic outlook for the next year.

INDIA: The S&P Global India Manufacturing PMI pushed up to 55.7 percent for November after registering a solid 55.3 percent mark in October. Demand spurred growth as manufacturers saw a strong increase in new orders and output. The purchasing rate also accelerated with inflation pressure easing and notably employment grew for a ninth straight month. Additionally, supplier delivery times improved and materials were delivered on time to improve overall manufacturer performance. With the strong demand, companies were optimistic about the business outlook as sentiment hit an eight-year high.

CHINA: The Caixin China General Manufacturing PMI had a second straight month of improvement registering 49.4 percent for November, but the continuing struggles with COVID containment kept manufacturers in contraction territory for a fourth straight month. Output fell, new orders were weak and export sales were also disappointing. Companies cut back on purchasing and that impacted employment, which also fell. The business outlook was still pessimistic but did hit a three-month high.

ITALY: The S&P Global Italian Manufacturing PMI bumped up to 48.4 percent in November to reach a four-month high. However, manufacturing in the country still remains in contraction territory dating back to July of this year. Inflation and recession concerns impacted new orders and client demand. Employment did improve as firms were anticipating increased demand. Cost inflation did continue to increase and the business outlook remained weak.

GERMANY: The S&P Global/BME Germany Manufacturing PMI came in at 46.2 percent for November. The reading kept German manufacturers in contraction territory for the fifth straight month, but it was the first positive move for the German index since May of 2022. Headwinds for the country include weaker demand related to higher energy costs resulting from the Russia-Ukraine War.

UNITED KINGDOM: The S&P Global/CIPS U.K. Manufacturing PMI moved up slightly in November to register 46.5 percent. That was up 0.3 percent from 46.2 percent for October. Even with the upward move, the figure continues a ninth straight month of an overall downward trend and the fourth month in contraction territory for factory activity for U.K. manufacturing. Issues include lower output, a decrease in new work and lower employment. New exports took a dive as demand fell from many key trading partners. Inflation pressure decreased; however, business outlook hit the lowest mark since April 2020 as recession fears are weighing on U.K. companies.
