Back on April 21st and 22nd, several of us from John Prosock Machine were exhibitors at the Valley Forge Design 2 Part expo. At this expo, we had the opportunity to get in front of numerous quality engineers, purchasing personnel and top administrators from the key OEMs in the Northeast. Overall, we felt that the show exceeded our expectations. We were able to discuss with dozens of potential customers the CNC mill and lathe capability of our precision machine shop. We came away with over 40 solid prospects that we are now seeking to turn into satisfied customers for our machine shop.
Even in the midst of the economic downturn companies were out in force. For many the economic strain is forcing them to rethink their supply chains and make sure they are getting the best pricing for their outsourced machining.
The fun part for us was to meet a bunch of very interesting people in the manufacturing world. Our industry is full of the best of the best.
Design 2 Part has been organizing large scale events like these for over 30 years. Machine shops, manufacturing companies and suppliers of all kinds have found this opportunity a key to garnering new business for their companies. Over 80% of the companies that exhibit at the expo return for more shows. They have been driving business to their exhibitors business to our exhibitors because of one thing, QUALITY.
We found this to be true at every level of the conference. (Not so much for the food though)
All in all it was well worth our investment. We have received several rfq’s for machined parts already.
We hope to go back next year. If you want information and dates, click on the link below.
