Last week, we were well represented at a record-breaking IMTS in Chicago, IL. Our team walked the 1.4 million square feet of exhibition space. There were 2,563 exhibiting suppliers at 2,123 booths, including many companies that we work with. The International Manufacturing Technology Show takes place every 24 months at McCormick Place, and is the best place to see the latest machine tool, tooling, gaging, and software.
According to the organizers, “IMTS 2018 didn’t just break records; it crushed them. According to AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology, the show attendance will approach 130,000 at its close. The prior record was 121,764—and that was during the dot-com bubble.”
In the coming weeks, our team will debrief with others at our three plant sites as we evaluate which technology and ideas will help build new capacity and capability. IMTS is always an inspiration experience, but it has practical impact as suppliers follow-up. It’s great to be part of a resurgent manufacturing sector.
