New Gardner Business Index Products Released

Gardner Intelligence is very pleased to announce that our Advanced Materials Business Index products have launched! This new system allows Gardner to track business activity by the type of equipment or materials used in facilities across the country.

Moving forward we will now be able to separately monitor business activity among Glass Fiber and Carbon Fiber fabricators. We will also have the ability to evaluate business activity among shops specialize in using Five Axis Machines, EDMs or Grinding equipment. In total Gardner will now be able to track 17 additional materials or specialized processes.

The full list includes the following (which may expand in the future):
Electroplating, Electrocoating, Blow Molding, Carbon Fiber Fabricating, Glass Fiber Fabricating, EDMs, Grinding, Powdercoating, Thermoplastics, Thermosets, and Thermoforming. We will also be tracking several additional end-markets beyond our current 24. New end-markets will include Consumer Products manufacturing and Wind Energy manufacturing.
