About Productivity Technologies Corp.
Productivity Technologies Corp. manufactures automated industrial systems, machinery, equipment, custom electrical control panels and a provider of engineering services. The Company sells its products principally to automobile and automotive parts manufacturers and appliance manufacturers. Other customers include manufacturers of garden and lawn equipment, office furniture, heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment and aircraft. The company primarily operates in United States, and has targeted its sales efforts in Canada, Mexico, Europe and Asia.
The Company's wholly owned subsidiaries include Atlas Technologies, Inc. (Atlas) and Westland Control Systems, Inc. (Westland).
Atlas offers production critical, technology products based on proven designs and engineering, which are modular and may be used with existing systems, as well as with new systems. Virtually all of its products are manufactured on a made-to-order basis. Atlas personnel perform applications engineering, product design or customization, procurement, fabrication, machining, assembly, testing, shipping and installation of the products and systems it sells.
Quick die change equipment made by Atlas includes automated die carts, die tables and high rise automated storage-retrieval systems which are used to maneuver stamping press dies and molds weighing up to 100 tons each. The Atlas-developed products allow die swapping to be accomplished in minutes as compared to hours if conventional equipment is used. Atlas storage-retrieval systems permit dies not in use to be stored in multiple level racks and readily accessible to die carts for die swapping. Atlas' equipment can be configured for use with either manually controlled or automated presses.
Transfer press automation equipment is sold by Atlas under the names Flex 2000, Flex 3000, and Flex 5000. Transfer presses use as many as ten dies within a single press to progressively form the component (typically including tasks such as drawing or forming, trimming, piercing and flanging). Atlas began offering standard Transfer Press Cells as a systems integrator, comprised of Atlas equipment and presses made by other manufacturers to more aggressively pursue the transfer press process market segment. Stacking and destacking automation equipment is used to handle the sheet metal in the initial stages of the stamping process. Stackers stack flat blanks cut from the coiled rolls, which are delivered to the manufacturer. Atlas also produces and sells precision steel pallets for handling the stacks of sheet metal so as to reduce handling damage and to eliminate the need for strapping the stack of sheets together.
Westland designs, manufactures and field installs custom electrical control panels primarily for use in production machinery and machine tools utilized in automotive, adhesive and sealant, food processing, and other industrial applications. The design and manufacture of control panels for machinery occasionally occurs in the later stages of the machinery design and construction process. Machinery must first be constructed, and then wired, where the wiring is conducted through the control panel.
Westland's products range from small, single door electrical panels to six door panels. The electrical control panels are used by customers to control the mechanical functions of machinery used in applying adhesives and sealants in automobile production, material handling equipment for metal forming for automobiles and appliances, the machining of cylinders for the manufacture of vehicle engines, and the fabrication of containers for food and juice packaging.
The Companys major customers include General Motors Corporation and The Ford Motor Company.
The primary competitors of Atlas include ABB Flexible Automation; Automatic Feed Company; Binar; Orchid International; Linear Transfer Systems; Gudel/Rapindex; Wayne Trail; HMS Products Co.; Schuler Automation Group; Strothmann GmbH; and Aisaku. Westland's major competitors in the Southeast Michigan region include Bentech; K-R Automation; Con-Syst-Int; JIC Electric; X-Bar Automation; and Control Technique, Incorporated.
Productivity Technologies Corp., formerly Production Systems Acquisition Corporation, was incorporated in 1993. The company changed its name to Productivity Technologies Corp. in 1996.

Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
