Ron Nielsen, IKS' VP for Sales and Paper/Recycling, stopped by the IKS blog today to give a recap of the 2015 NPE show in Orlando. Check out what Ron had to say about his experience below:
IKS exhibited at the NPE 2015 show in Orlando, Florida in March. Billed as the largest ever, the show filled both the south and the west halls in the Orlando Convention Center. The show ran for five days (March 22-27) and the total attendees count was estimated to be over 60,000.
Made in the USA
We displayed a banner with the words “MADE IN U.S.A.” as one of our prominent display features. There are very few knife companies that can make that statement. The IKS booth was located in the recycling hall and literally hundreds of people stopped by to ask about our company, products, and services.
We have been absent from this industry for several years, and people clearly recognized that. Several show attendees from Asia stopped by our booth and mentioned that they were interested in American products. We happily explained that we’re alive and well in Florence, SC.
Old Faces, New Customers
Kenny Causey was the main plastic granulator specialist at IKS for many years. He has since returned to IKS and several old friends and customers stopped to visit and discuss our industry position and focus. We are increasing our bank of drawings and inventory every week in order to fulfill the needs of our customers and look forward to working with more customers than ever before.
As we respond to the inquiries from the show, we look forward to making new friends and customers. Please do not hesitate to contact IKS to learn more about our American-made products!
