We sell metalworking fluids to numerous machine tool companies as well as end users. We have one customer tied completely to the automotive industry that has been shelving machines for the past year. The only sales we have had with them has been chemical clean-up of the tanks and rust inhibitors for the machines so they can shrink wrap them and push them into a corner. Once a $ 1,500,000 account, so far this year they have bought $80,000. They are now down sizing our company, because this scenario is playing out all across our customer base.
