e called it “Mr. Toad’s
Wild Ride” last year, as
we noted that automation sales had remained strong while
the rest of the economy had dropped
into the pot. It didn’t take long, however for the automation vendors to follow like lemmings over the recession cliff. Starting in the first quarter of 2009, sales softened and, in some cases, plummeted. Sales funnels vanished, and some companies began cutting and gutting in a frantic attempt to maintain profitability. Which portion of the manufacturing economy the company faced determined how fast and how deep the cuts had to go. Companies working in

the process industries generally had
to cut less, at least at first, than those
in the discrete manufacturing sector. Those servicing the automotive industries and their suppliers were
hurt the worst as the big automakers
flailed and both GM and Chrysler
filed for bankruptcy protection.
The numbers we present here, however, do not reflect the precipitous decline in the performance of the sector since the end of 2008, because, as always, we’ve used the last full year
of financial performance data we can
get to establish the Top 50 rankings.
In this case, the data are normalized
to 2008 financial performance. So
you can take it as given that we’ll be
able to show you the whole sorry story
next December, after all the 2009
performance data have come out.
