Leadership Impact

As we prep for the 106th ABMA convention to be held March 22-25, 2023, on Coronado Island in the San Diego, California area, I am really looking forward to the keynote speech on “Leadership Matters” scheduled for the Thursday morning session. With our ongoing celebration of the 125th anniversary for Brushware, I've now had the opportunity to speak with two of the previous owners and certainly those conversations revealed quite a bit about their different styles and my own style in leading the magazine. You'll find the interview with Carl Wurzer who owned the magazine from 1976 to 1999 on page 14, and he certainly provided some fascinating insights about his time with Brushware.

Continuing the theme, in our profile on page 18, CEO Frits Doddema of Montipower also offers an in-depth view on leadership while emphasizing some of the key traits of good leaders. It’s an engaging read and I recommend the piece to anyone aspiring to future leadership.

For the convention overall, I'm excited to get the chance again to squeeze in some conversations with our readers and advertisers to get a reading on sentiment around the industry. While we are still in the midst of the latest round of challenges for business, I am so far a bit surprised that in the Brushware world and many other B2B segments that I am involved in, we are seeing quite a bit of marketing activity. Specifically from the Brushware perspective, we are seeing more leads from the online directory, more general inquiries, more interest in subscriptions, more page views and escalating growth in our digital magazine engagement.

I get the sense that many leaders in business have become accustomed to the headwinds and have simply resolved that they are going to expand business no matter what comes next. It could be impatience, but the attitude seems to be, “we can sit around and worry or we can be active in pushing our business forward.” It's a practical approach no matter what and even more so as many are predicting we are likely to see improved business conditions by the second half of 2023. Of course, I am certainly a subscriber to the move forward and grab the bull by the horns approach when attracting new business. Fight through the storm and come out stronger on the other side.

I hope you enjoy this edition of Brushware and if you are attending the ABMA Convention, please be sure and track me down. I always enjoy meeting our readers and I look forward to great discussion and feedback.

Hillbrush Becomes Official Member of Made in Britain

Hillbrush, the U.K.’s longest-established and largest independent manufacturer of traditional brushes and specialist cleaning tools is now an official member of Made in Britain. Membership to the Made in Britain organization allows Hillbrush to use the Made in Britain registered mark on all its products, packaging and marketing materials.

Hillbrush manufactures more than 2,000 brushes and cleaning tools from its U.K. manufacturing site in Wiltshire. Supplied to more than 90 countries worldwide, Hillbrush’s comprehensive range includes commercial brushes and ancillary items suitable for janitorial, council and commercial cleaning applications. Hillbrush’s traditional range includes broom heads, broom handles, hand brushes and guttering cleaning tools aimed largely at the agricultural and construction sectors.

Hillbrush has invested significantly during its 100 years in business in the U.K. with state-of-the-art design and manufacturing facilities including a new 1,800 square meter warehouse providing additional space to hold products on site and therefore ensure high stock availability to customers. As Hillbrush’s products are “Made in Britain,” lead times for customers can be much shorter when compared with other products in the marketplace.

Hillbrush managing director Charlie Coward says, “Hillbrush is a British manufacturing institution that has stayed true to its family values while innovating and diversifying to stay ahead of the times.

Made in Britain is an accolade that we are very proud to champion. Manufacturing locally is good for jobs and the local economy. It is a sustainable way to do business and in the current climate of difficult sourcing issues and long lead times, it’s better for our customers too.”

SUSTAINABILITY AWARD: Hillbrush’s commitment to sustainability was recognized in December 2022 when the company secured “Highly Commended” in the “Sustainable Company of the Year” category at the prestigious Cleaning Excellence Conference and Awards. Planet Mark certificated since 2019, Hillbrush, the U.K.’s largest manufacturer of brushes and specialist cleaning tools, has made significant strides to implement and improve its carbon footprint across all areas of its business, from procurement to manufacture and delivery.

Simple changes at Hillbrush’s manufacturing site in Mere, Wiltshire, have given tangible results in both business efficiency and sustainability. Changes include more solar panels, LED lighting, electric charging points, automatic taps to control water consumption and using 80 percent recycling materials. In addition, Hillbrush is currently working towards ISO 14001 environmental certification and will launch new products that use fewer materials.

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.

YOUR BRUSH DESERVES THE BEST FILAMENTS 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. 1-800-635-9695 | www.dupont.com

Stainless Steel Products Adds New Brush Wire Processing Facility

At the start of 2023, Stainless Steel Products moved all of their brush wire crimping, straightening and bunching operations to a new and larger facility in Mohnton, Pennsylvania. The move to Mohnton was instigated by customer demands to expand production capacity, especially for their crimping and bunching lines, and in order to reduce lead times.

Historically, the company has prided itself on short lead times using kanban systems, blanket orders and other similar methods. However, as demand for the company’s productive capabilities has expanded greatly in the past couple of years, lead times have gotten rather lengthy. As a result, in 2022 the company undertook a sizeable expansion of inventory including more quantities of brush wires in stainless steel, oil-tempered steel and copper-based brush wires such as brass, phosphor bronze and nickel silver.

During the first quarter and into the second quarter of 2023, the company is expanding machinery and productive capacity,

now that they have more space available at the new location in Mohnton. The expansion of machinery also includes nextgeneration upgrades to their existing systems with new spoolers, payoffs and crimping machines.

Stainless Steel Products began operations in June 1995 and became a member of the ABMA in 1997. The company serves industrial manufacturers in North America with value-added services including application engineering assistance, responsive customer service and quality products. Contact Stainless Steel Products at 631-243-1500 or SALES@stainlesswires.com.

Ohio Manufacturers’ Association’s New Workforce Services Roadmap

The Ohio Manufacturers’ Association has announced the availability of the latest OMA Workforce Roadmap. Guiding the workforce community since 2017, the new Workforce Roadmap lays out the strategies to bolster OMA’s network of Industry Sector Partnerships to protect and grow Ohio manufacturing. OMA’s workforce priorities are designed to:

• Expand earn-and-learn programs to engage, evaluate, and employ recruits. Through June 2025, the OMA will scale an entry-level earn-and-learn initiative called WorkAdvance throughout the state via OMA’s network of Industry Sector Partnerships (ISPs).

• Accelerate the development of a statewide Innovation/ Industry 4.0 education and workforce development environment. As technology advances, the OMA effort to stay on-pace with innovation and support manufacturers by maintaining a pipeline of trained workers is critical.

• Develop the structures and processes that help manufacturers hire and retain workers through a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion lens. Expanding and diversifying the advanced manufacturing talent pool is endorsed by OMA as a solution for helping to close the skills gap in Ohio.

• Strengthen and expand the capacity of OMA’s ISPs. As of January, OMA’s ISP network had grown to 15 endorsed partnerships, collectively encompassing 72 of Ohio’s 88 counties.

Joseph A. Graham

The ABMA reported the passing of Joseph Allan Graham, former chairman of Atlas Graham Industries, on December 30, 2022. Graham joined his father in his broom and brush manufacturing business at Atlas Brush Ltd. in 1960 which was later renamed Atlas Graham Industries.

His impact at Atlas Graham began in sales where his goal was always to stay true to his father’s vision of building superior quality products and servicing the customer better than the competition with unsurpassed honesty and integrity. It was Graham who was made aware of the first looped-end mops being developed by Seco Industries in the early 1970s and a deal was completed to make Atlas Graham the only licensed manufacturer of the product in Canada.

The announcement says he will be remembered for instilling a customercentric business philosophy, which is still the company’s primary focus today, and why AGF has been successful for 82 years. While making his customers a top priority, he also made all his employees feel as if they were family, which was reflected in their tenure. It was his integrity and passion for the industry that led him to establish long-lasting relationships with customers and vendors that still exist to this day.

CARL WURZER

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 second installment in the series, we have the following interview with former magazine owner, Carl Wurzer.

Age: 83

Current location: Harrisonburg, VA.

Role: Owner from 1976 to 1999

Can tell us about how you acquired Brushware?

I went into the print broker business in 1974. I realized at that time I could get a $1,000,000 policy for my wife Andra and the two children but how far will that go? I always had in the back of my mind to go ahead and get a publication. So this fellow, Walter Grimes, had an office in the National Press Building and I would stop in every so often. Of course, some of the prices for the publications were way beyond my means.

One day I stopped in and Walter said, ‘Something just crossed my desk the other day. This could be something you might want to take a look at.’

So I got the information from him and called the owner Chuck Baldwin. At that time Baldwin was living in Bernardsville, New Jersey, so it was only maybe about a three-hour drive for us. We went up and went through the financials. Our CPA, Jay Fielding, said everything is pretty much in sync with the tax returns. So I said, ‘Okay, fine, we’ll go ahead with it.’

The whole idea behind getting the publication in 1976 was so that Andra would have something to work with or have an income from, rather than just the policy because the print broker business was basically all up in my head. So that’s how it got started.

What was it like in the early days of running the magazine?

When it started, a fellow by the name of William Magnus did the editing of freelance articles. He had his own ad agency and we had known each other for a number of years. I told him what was going to happen and he said, ‘That’s fine, I can go ahead and edit it.’

We sent it up to a fellow by name of Frank Kotkamp, in Brattleboro, Vermont, who did the typesetting. We were on our way up to New England for some reason and I suggested to Andra to stop off and see Frank. When he opens up the door to his apartment, it slams right into the composing machine. He said, ‘Well, that’s the only place we could fit it.’ So, he had this typesetter right there in the middle of his living room. He was good. He did ballet on the side and was so nimble. You never really had to proofread his material, I mean, that’s how clean it was.

Bottom line was that I felt after about a year and a half with the people we had working on it, Andra could basically run the publication on her own. At that time, we had the writers John Perry and Gerson Goodman. All of the suppliers were good.

14 | www.brushwaremag.com 2023 Media Kit 125 Year Anniversary 1898-2023 brushware

I was still basically on the road three days a week, mainly in the Washington D.C. area because we lived in Potomac at that time. During the week Andra would lay out the magazine and was really running the show from that point. I still handled the advertising. Once again, as I say, it was like clockwork, we didn’t have any contracts with anybody. It was just you know, a handshake or a phone call. ‘Yeah, go ahead, keep running our ad.’ You know that kind of a thing.

What do think about the current state of Brushware?

I see you have not dropped the quality of the paper, that’s good. As soon as I took the publication over in 1976, that was one of the first things I did. I went to a 60# coated stock for the paper and also went to a 70# coated cover versus what it was before. Baldwin … was a character. I had a five-year payout with him and when I made the last payment, I brought the final check to him and said, ‘Well Chuck, I won’t be seeing you any further or having any communication, we’re all said and done.” And he looks at me, didn’t thank me for making sure that he received his money on a monthly basis, but he says to me, ‘Well, I just probably sold it too soon.’

If you could have seen the publication before and then after we got it, it was like night and day.

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

We had a good stable of advertisers. I mean it was like clockwork and that was one of the best parts of the whole thing. The other part that was always interesting was the writers. There was a publication called Editor & Publisher that came out on a weekly basis. They had a big classified section in the back with writers and publishers looking for writers and I think that’s how we came across Bob Lawrence.

At that time, the ABMA had two meetings, one in the fall and one in the spring. The one in the fall was usually in an industrial state and the one in the spring was always held in Florida, either at the Breakers or Boca Raton. Later they started to migrate out to the West Coast on that one.

We had a fellow by the name of Gerson Goodman, who also was one of our writers. After we had a trip out to the West Coast and took the red-eye special back, I get a phone call from Gerson and he says, ‘Carl, I’m telling you right now, that’s the last time I’m gonna be doing this. You better find somebody else.’

Bob Lawrence had already been working with us. I had him going around the country to the different brush manufacturers. Then what we did is I would send him out a copy of the subscribers so when we were going to the spring or fall convention, we would go ahead and look in the area for manufacturers or suppliers. That’s how we did the profiles. Our lead article at that time was always of somebody in the brush industry.

We also had another fellow by the name of Bruce Gebhardt, who has since passed away, a victim of Agent Orange in Vietnam unfortunately. He was an excellent writer, beyond belief. He really had connections at the Commerce Department and knew what was going on with the different sessions with imports and exports.

What would you consider to be the strength of Brushware during your time with the magazine?

I think the strength overall was simply the writing. We had a reporter in Japan, who, we eventually found out wound up in Tokyo because he had no money. He was good and did good reporting for us. We had Goodman who was out of New York, and of course, he did a lot of the reporting of the conventions. Another fellow that we had was John Perry. We found him through Editor & Publisher. He wrote for different publications like U.S. News and World Report and a few others. He spoke Swiss, German, Spanish and Italian. He was an excellent, excellent writer and would do the conventions for us over in Europe. He covered Interbrush and the European Brushware Federation, so then we would go ahead and have him do interviews with some of the manufacturers.

Is there anything about working on Brushware during your time that would you think would be a surprise to the readers?

I did have some favorable comments on what/where Bruce would be covering, regarding the imports and exports. He would also be down at the Commerce Department interviewing people there. I think people were pleasantly surprised at the coverage. We would go ahead and give it the importance that we thought brush manufacturers deserved. So we did have a good response — they really appreciated that.

Do you have any thoughts or comments overall on the 125-year anniversary of the magazine?

Well, Andra and I both feel a little bit down that the back issues are gone. Every couple of years I would take it to a library bindery and I’d have them bound up and have the volume number put on and the year and Brushware and the whole nine yards. There were a couple of volumes missing, but the first one that really stuck out was the one from 1898 when they first came out compared to where we took it.

It’s just a shame because what we also did is in the July/August issue I would run what we called the nostalgic section and I would put a 10 or 15 percent yellow tint behind it. We would do four to eight pages depending on how the space went. I would go back to let’s say 1925, 1920 or 1930. The same things that you hear today from the manufacturers you heard back in 1925, ‘Can’t get good help, raw materials costing too much.’

Manufacturing Opportunities in e-Commerce

According to Insider Intelligence, U.S. B2B e-commerce sales will be over $2 trillion by 2024. Digital Commerce 360 says that manufacturers’ B2B e-commerce sales have been growing at an annual rate of 16 percent since 2016 which is almost 1.5 times faster than total manufacturing sales. The opportunity is vast to grow even faster than the averages as not all manufacturers are willing to jump into the mix.

As customers see the advantage of improved support and greater collaboration in addition to the lower costs of going direct to manufacturers, sales will continue to increase for manufacturers that invest in B2B e-commerce. It is not for the faint of heart as companies have to upgrade systems infrastructure to accept online orders, provide inventory visibility and tie it in with an existing ERP system. Additionally, manufacturers will have to proactively address changes to their ability to pick, pack and ship smaller orders on a more frequent basis. On the other hand, those that offer this capability will grow faster than the competition, and, more importantly, they will develop a closer relationship with their customers.

For example, a bike helmet manufacturer wanted to take advantage of potential e-commerce sales; however, their greater near-term opportunity was in B2B e-commerce. They took the opportunity and upgraded their B2B system capabilities. Their customers gained a superior customer interface with valueadded reports and capabilities and the company was able to leverage this advantage in the marketplace.

Additionally, by virtue of having B2B e-commerce capabilities, their B2C e-commerce capabilities and related customer opportunities grew as well. In concert with these upgrades, they also upgraded their ERP system, warehousing process capabilities and warehouse automation so that they could increase their efficiency, accuracy and responsiveness to meet these increased demands without negatively impacting operations.

Similarly, a hand tools manufacturer saw a significant opportunity in e-commerce sales during the pandemic. From a sales perspective, they could take orders from B2B customers as well as consumers to support aggressive and rapid sales growth; however, there were challenges in meeting customers’ expectations from a distribution perspective. Since their strength was in supporting B2B customers and their ability to pivot in manufacturing to changing needs and incorporate product changes rapidly, they wanted to focus on how to best serve these priority customers.

Thus, they performed an internal analysis as well as a 3PL analysis to determine the requirements and costs to pick, kit as needed, package, pack and ship pallets (typically required for B2B) as well as pieces (typically required for B2C) while supporting a quick delivery window for their customers. Although they could scale up internal operations, space was limited, so they decided to focus the 3PL experts on improved performance for B2B e-commerce customers while looking for opportunities for efficiency and cost improvements in warehousing and freight. They kept the rest internal while focusing efforts on the 3PL pilot for quick scalability and dedicated expertise.

E-commerce trends will continue to increase as customer personalization and customization differentiate from the competition. It is not one size fits all but taking steps forward will open up opportunities. The proactive companies will thrive whereas the stodgy will see their competition race by.

TITLE: CEO

18 | www.brushwaremag.com profile

What year did you start in the industry and how did you get started?

I started to work in the paint and coatings industry in 1998 for a Marine Coatings Manufacturer from The Netherlands. After one year I started to work for Carboline Coatings (RPM Inc) from St. Louis taking care of the Central European business. In 2005, I joined STOPAQ.Sealforlife from Stadskanaal Groningen close to my hometown. They manufactured a patented visco-elastic pipeline coating to prevent corrosion. I came in contact with Monti at the 2006 ADIPEC oil and gas show in Abu Dhabi. Monti is an amazing tool and brush to clean and prepare steel substrates for coating as an alternative for open grit blasting. These brushes of Monti, branded under MBX or Bristle Blaster, were able to remove mill scale, rust, existing coatings and create a profile. Proper profiling is for example needed for liquid-curing coating adhesion and corrosion resistance in the long run. After the show in 2006, I started to promote this technology and in 2018 I joined the company as CEO and co-owner. In the meantime from 2012-2018, I have been EVP of Berry Global Inc, an Indiana-based stock quoted company strong in the manufacturing of consumable plastics and textiles such as nonwovens. For Berry, I have run the global SealforLife Industries business with a fantastic team. Some team members joined the Monti-Group which consists of surface preparation tools, coatings and coating services such as inspection and calibration services for coating test equipment.

Can you tell our readers about Monti and the market it serves?

MontiPower serves a broad range of markets from automotive to retail all over the world. The biggest business portion is the preparation of outdoor heavy-duty steel such as pipelines, oil and gas platforms, refineries, tanks and terminals for coatings and sealants. You also see the tool and Monti brush used for bridges, statues, marine vessels, super yachts, riverboats, nuclear facilities, mining and OEM fabrication. Any operator can create a 1m2 blast cleanliness and anchor profile per brush, per hour. A 23mm wide brush does strike the substrate effectively more than 10,000 times a second. The brush does not burnish or heat up the substrate. The tool works at a low speed of 2500 rpm and low vibration/noise. Monti prepares any substrate from scratch. Automotive, including maintenance of busses, planes, trains and trucks or other agricultural equipment, is another big portion of the business. Monti does have a retail brand called Decapower and Activet for dog brushes.

What are the key advantages Montipower products offer?

The key advantage of the Monti setup of a tool/brush is that an operator can achieve ‘sandblasting” quality without the use of grit or other blast media. The brushes can be resharpened and recycled. The tools are robust and do have a long life when maintained well. The operator can actually see what he is cleaning and preparing for coating or sealants. For rust removal, the rust particles can be vacuumed. Monti offers the tools as cordless, pneumatic, electric cable and waterdriven solutions. An operator can be the master of spot repair even at high altitudes, like wind power. Every year, more than 20,000 operators all around the world work with our tools to restore, prepare, and maintain a pipeline, car, bridge etc. Monti prepares more than 1 million m2 substrates including wood, stone, plastic, stainless, galvanized steel, composites and aluminum for protection in an environmentally safe, fast, easy and applicator-friendly manner.

What is your favorite aspect of working in the industry?

First of all, I love to run a factory, to be the source to engineer better and new solutions by design and manufacturing. Secondly, I love to sell game-changing products in the market and explore new markets and thirdly I love to work worldwide with a passionate group of people to grow the business in existing and new markets. Every day, together with our international team and with the clients, we learn about the capabilities of our brushes. Preparation is everything, we say. In our case, we need to understand the context of different kinds of substrates, coating and sealant needs and wishes, H&S, environmental constraints and new factors like Co2 impact of the job versus other solutions. The team is passionate to change project specifications so that all stakeholders from different perspectives such as H&S, ergonomics, productivity, environment and quality feel confident about our brush solutions which offer similar cleanliness and profiling results as loose abrasive blasting. We make a big impact up to circa 15m2 a day per repair job onsite, and outdoors. Monti owns many patents and has been extremely innovative the last four years to make the fundaments of our technology stronger than ever.

JF (FRITS) DODDEMA | MONTIPOWER

What is your proudest career or company accomplishment?

One of the founders of Monti-Werkzeuge GmbH was Detlef Thomas. Unfortunately, he passed away five years ago. Detlef always was a great business friend. Day in and day out we think of him. Detlef and the team did a great job getting Monti where it was. He had big dreams and visions for Monti. The team feels lucky and privileged to make it all happen. Wish he could be with us to celebrate the Monti future. In 2022, we celebrated the 35th anniversary of Monti.

What are the key challenges you have faced at Monti and how have you solved those challenges?

The key was to survive 2020. Together with an investor from Norway, I managed to buy the shares of Monti-Werkzeuge GmbH and created the Monti-Group. In 2020, COVID-19 came and most big clients just locked their warehouses and transportation of goods became hardly possible. Revenues just dropped. In the end, it meant switching gears and changing the focus for a while. We put a lot of emphasis on a total make-over of the facilities. We came out stronger than ever. Today we do have more suppliers from the E.U. Supply chain is back under control. Nevertheless, year on year since 2018 we’ve grown 10 percent. We opened new offices around the world, and some distributors became part of the Monti Group. The USA is the most important region for Monti’s sales. We stuck to the plan and we beat the plan. R. Schueller said it once: “All it takes is one idea to make the impossible possible.” For this one needs focus, discipline and teamwork.

What changes or innovations do you see ahead for Monti and the industry it serves?

There is more and more pressure on firms for ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance), H&S for workers in the field and legal business compliance. I see that more and more asset owners are staring intensive maintenance programs to keep current machines or assets operating instead of buying new machines. Less capex, more opex. I also see that due to ESG, co2, and H&S constraints, specifiers and engineers look for alternative solutions to lower the environmental impact.

It is clear that the car business is trending downwards. Some markets go up and down based on oil prices. We are fortunate to have a healthy mix of many customers around the world. Locally, we see that many smaller firms have trouble getting back on track long before COVID-19. The bigger get bigger and some small firms disappear. Monti does have the capabilities to triple sales. We are ready to contribute to a more sustainable world. We embrace new digital tools to promote our features and benefits. We simply aim to make coatings and sealants better. We keep on pushing the narrative of H&S, cleanliness and profiling quality and environmental impact from Co2, recycling and resharpening perspective.

Also via our own webshops, it is easy to select accessories such as safety caps, dust control vacuum units, offshore rope access safety hooks and battery backpacks. We continue to innovate to make a difference subsea, in the sky (Aeroblaster) and by robotic crawlers to speed up productivity.

Are there any new products or initiatives for Monti that you would like to share?

A fantastic new initiative is the recycle bin. This is a carton bin which we offer to our contractor clients. The contractors can make an impact and statement to their clients, the asset owners. The brushes can be returned so that we can recycle the brushes for our clients. This exercise is part of a loyalty program. Asset owners love that the contractors take waste to NetZero.

Recruiting skilled workers overall and also young workers has been stated as a concern in the industry. How do you think that is best addressed?

We simply look for talent. Talent doesn’t have much to do with education. At key positions and all other positions, we look for people who are passionate to join a disruptive international team. For example in one of our manufacturing plants, we have a fantastic mix of Germans, Dutch, Belgians, Turkish, Russian, Syrian, Afghans and Romanians. Different vocational backgrounds lead to new and better ideas. We do not think or work in silos. I believe in entrepreneurship, or better said, intrapreneurship. This means, giving responsibility where it belongs. At the basis of the organization, workers must have the ability and tools to be effective and efficient for the company, the team and him or herself. We work with clear house rules to respect, take care and help each other. Current and new talent all get support like extra education and possibilities to join trade shows and demonstrations to understand the crossfunctions. Many do have double roles in the firm. Making Monti brushes is thinking upside down for many educated people. We look for people who are still able and willing to see through. What you see is not always what you get and vice versa when you take a deep dive into making brushes. Making Monti brushes from the rolls made by the card clothing setting machines is a gift. It gives so much joy.

Do you have any key business/leadership tips out there for young people looking to ascend to a leadership role?

Try to read as many books about leadership as you can, for example, Simon Sinek’s “Start With Why.” After reading these books and talking to business leaders about their drive and attitudes, make sure you find your own purpose. Entrepreneurship is about direction, room, accountability and reward. Being the boss does not make you the boss. Respect is something that you cannot get because of a title or position, but it is something that you receive. Leading a business means serving the organization and all stakeholders like banks. As in normal life, make sure you treat someone the same way you would like to be treated.

20 | www.brushwaremag.com

Leading or owning a business is not just a role. It is life. Make sure you pick the right partner to pursue your destiny to be you. Never pretend. Be authentic. “Leaders Eat Last” is a book I recommend. Serving means that you come last, not first. It means you cannot be selfish and think about X amount of hours and dollars per hour. Also do not think in terms of work-life balance. Leading means life. It is very rewarding to share success and go through necessary changes. Change must be good. Leaders show and tell what is good. Leaders are the face of the business in the market and take the pain for the team. It is fantastic to build businesses and build personal identities and stronger individuals.

Based on respect, taking care, looking after each other and teamwork, we continue to strive to be the best in brushes for surface preparation. The underlying vision and mission approach is fundamental. One tip: “Make sure that you surround yourself with positive, energy-giving people.”

What is the key tradeshow for Monti?

The key event for Monti is the AMPP Show (NACE/SSPC). This is a corrosion engineers show and conference. In 2023 the event will be held in Denver. During such shows, we gather for committee meetings about surface preparation to make sure that Monti brushes get the place in the market they deserve to be known for.

What do you like to do outside of work?

Just to be out in Spain, in Malaga with the family to see old and make new friends.To live the Spanish life of drinking Rioja red wine, eating fish and tapas. We have a place down there in the city near the beach.

Do you have any pop culture favorites?

Since the 1970s, as a kid, I follow one band in particular. A band that never made it in the USA. This is Status Quo with great songs such as: “Whatever You Want,” “Down Down,” “Roll Over Lay Down” and “In the Army Now.” As a kid, it was KISS or Status Quo. This is pure rock ‘n’ roll without any fashion. Just denim, 12 bar blues. Besides Quo, I do listen to blues-rock bands like Rory Gallagher, ZZ Top, Deep Purple. Rod Stewart and Eric Clapton are also on the playlist. I am also a fan of Elvis Presley. I recommend watching the latest movie about him and his manager from the Netherlands. What a story.

Are there sports and/or teams that you follow?

I used to be a soccer player with my 14-year-old son. I follow FC Barcelona from Spain. For me, the best player is Frenkie De Jong as he embodies the philosophy of Johan Cruyff the most. Do you have a business travel tip for our readers?

If I travel on a plane I do have a golden rule of: 33 percent sleep, 33 percent work, 33 percent watching movies.

What is one thing about you that people might find surprising?

The future lies in the past. So, for a country, a region, but also for a business, there is always a reason why something is done the way it is done. I always want to find out what is behind a decision, a written or an unwritten rule. In many businesses, you find these unwritten rules. If you ask the question: “Why is it done this way?” or “Where is it stated?;” people look at you with glazed eyes. People are sometimes surprised because I support a culture of openness, directness, fairness and honesty. People make mistakes. It is better to just say “sorry” so the whole team can learn from it. I also see from working all over the world that language can be very decision-making. It is for me important to feel the language to understand why things are done in a certain way. Most people look at me and do like how I am able to change companies in 100 days by the look and feel of new marketing. This means a new slogan, new logo, new colors, new look and feel, new pay-off, new adverts, new words, new brandbooks. I believe in Human to Human marketing. Not BtoB or BtoConsumers. People buy brands, not (from) companies.

What have you learned in life or in the industry?

I have learned that all people around the world have the same needs and wishes. I am fortunate to work in the anticorrosion business for more than 25 years. Corrosion is everywhere. In some regions worse than others. Of course, I know that there are always greedy and jealous people out there. I have learned that in bigger organizations, it might be the case that someone might put you in the corner for whatever reason. Most of the time because they are scared. My motto is to be fearless. Be strong for the company and the team. Like with fighting corrosion, we can’t compromise on quality. This is one of the reasons why I love the Monti Brush Solution so much. The best coatings in the world deserve the best brush.

A one-day attendee is an additional delegate representing a member organization (already sending a delegate) who will only be at the convention for one day (usually the Suppliers Display Day). This is to encourage member companies to bring additional purchasing and sales representatives for increased networking.

Companion

A companion is the spouse, child aged 18 and older, or significant other of a registered delegate and is not an employee of the attending organization.

Child

Your children are welcome. Ages 0-4 are free. Ages 5-11 are at the child rate. Ages 12-17 are at the teen rate. Children 18+ should register at the companion rate. If your child is now in the business and working the convention then they should be registered as a delegate.

US Manufacturing PMI Slide Continues Into January

India and Italy both register above 50 percent for PMI readings to start the year

While many countries seemed to find a bottom for manufacturing activity, the U.S. continued to slide deeper into contraction territory based on the latest PMI reading from the ISM® Report On Business® for manufacturing. The report tagged U.S. manufacturing with a reading of 47.4 percent for January, which represents a relatively steady decline that began in December of 2021.

“New order rates remain depressed due to buyer and supplier disagreements regarding price levels and delivery lead times; these should be resolved by the second quarter,” says Timothy R. Fiore, Chair of the ISM® Manufacturing Business Survey Committee. “In the meantime, panelists’ companies are attempting to maintain head-count levels during the anticipated slow first half in preparation for a strong performance in the second half of 2023. Eighty-six percent of manufacturing gross domestic product is contracting, up from 85 percent in December. However, 26 percent of sector industries had a composite PMI® calculation of below 45 percent in January, down from 35 percent the previous month.”

The report also indicates a softening in demand with the New Orders Index contracting strongly while the New Export

Orders Index showed improvement but still remained below 50 percent. The Customers’ Inventories Index contracted slightly which should be a positive for future production. The Backlog of Orders Index increased for a second straight month but still remains in contraction territory.

On the plus side, panelists’ companies indicate that they are not going to substantially reduce headcounts as they are projecting improvement in the second half of the year.

ISM® REPORT COMMENTS (US Manufacturers)

“Business is still strong, but we have begun to see softening in some pricing, and lead times seem to be improving.”

Computer and Electronic Products

“Conditions are reasonable. Sales are a little better than planned. Cost pressures are easing for most products. There have been a lot fewer supply disruptions so far this year, and few are expected in the short term. The crystal ball remains a little blurry for the rest of 2023.”

Chemical Products

“Sales have dropped (as expected) at the beginning of the year. The forecast from the sales department is showing even lower sales than we expected. If this holds true, inventory levels will rise slightly over the next month and a half.”

Food, Beverage and Tobacco Products

“Supply chain issues continue to plague our production schedules. Transportation from our overseas suppliers is also contributing to delays. Lead times have doubled for critical electronics, gaskets, sealants and specialized steel.”

Transportation Equipment

“Strong big ag demand continues to drive heightened demand for parts. Large construction/off-highway original equipment manufacturers have strong demand as well creating continued capacity constraints with the supply base.” Machinery

“Some business segments showing demand softening globally. Many materials showing improved lead times as well as cost deflation.”

Electrical Equipment, Appliances and Components

“Thus far, the outlook for the first half of 2023 looks very soft. Demand for our products has taken a sharp downward turn. Our inventories are high, as well as our customers’. It seems everyone is bracing for a recession.”

Fabricated Metal Products

“Customers are being quite aggressive in pursuing price decreases, far beyond the price relief we are actually receiving from our suppliers.” Miscellaneous Manufacturing

“Industrial construction is strong. Commercial construction is slower.”

Nonmetallic Mineral Products

“In the past two weeks, we are seeing a slowing of new orders.” Primary Metals

GLOBAL MANUFACTURING

EUROPE: The S&P Global Eurozone Manufacturing PMI registered 48.8 percent for January, up one percent from the December reading. It was the third straight month of improvement for Eurozone factory activity as the supply chain continued to remain stable. New orders declined, but at a slower rate despite a continuing decline in export business. Cost inflation hit a 26-month low and business optimism was up.

INDIA: While remaining well above the 50-percent line, the S&P Global India Manufacturing PMI slipped to 55.4 percent to start the year after a surge to 57.8 percent in December. Output and new orders grew but at a slower rate. Export sales have driven that growth over the past 10 months. Delivery times were shorter, but input costs hit a three-month high. Prices overall continued to increase.

ITALY: The S&P Global Italy Manufacturing PMI pushed into growth territory with a 50.4 percent reading for January. It was the first trip above the 50-percent line since June 2022. Output grew slightly, but new orders were weak as higher borrowing costs and fears of a recession factored in. Employment saw a bump and business confidence improved.

CHINA: The Caixin China General Manufacturing PMI came in at 49.2 percent in January to continue a streak in contraction territory that dates back to August 2022. Output fell but not as severely as in previous months. Export demand was still weak and fell for a sixth straight month. Backlogs of work increased and that helped improve employment figures. Delivery times were improved and business optimism reached the highest level since April 2021.

GERMANY: The S&P Global/BME Germany Manufacturing PMI was reported at 47.3 percent for January, up just 0.2 percent from December. Still, it represented a third straight month of improvement. The most significant headwind was a decline in new orders brought about by high inventories, high prices and a slowdown in investment. Export orders were weak, but employment grew for the 23rd straight month. Business optimism was up for the first time since February of last year.

UNITED KINGDOM: The S&P Global/CIPS UK Manufacturing PMI continued to bounce up and down in contraction territory to register 47.0 percent for January 2023. That was up nicely from the December figure of 45.3 percent but represented a sixth month in contraction territory. New orders dropped to continue an eight-month trend based on lower demand from the domestic and export markets. Input costs fell, but selling price inflation increased, while business confidence also pushed up.
