Last November, I had the chance to attend FabTech, a manufacturing conference and exhibition. One of North America’s largest manufacturing events, FabTech provides a convenient “one-stop shop” venue where you can meet with world-class suppliers; see the latest industry products and developments; and find the tools to improve productivity, increase profits, and discover new solutions for manufacturing needs (in this case, for metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing needs).
We know manufacturers in our industry are continually improving their existing products and processes while also developing new options for growth. Toward that end, this issue includes our annual R&D Directory, which strives to connect manufacturers’ specific research and development efforts with the ideal supplier partners.
