Phew! That’s a busy three months, to be sure, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. Engaging in our industries by being at all the major events allows us the unique opportunity to interact with a wide variety of customers, industry professionals, organizations & associations all in once place. We thrive on the great discussions that take place, the free exchange of ideas, providing solutions to problems, and helping our customers make educated choices that will help their business become more efficient and allow it to grow and prosper.
We’ve got three more shows upcoming for the remainder of 2011, and they are some of the biggest. SEMA is without a doubt, THE automotive industry event of the year. If you’re in to cars, chances are you’ll love SEMA. It really has everything the automotive industry has to offer, all in once place. GFS will be on-site at booth # 10821 in the Collision Repair section.
WMS is a great event for anyone in the woodworking industry. You’ll see the latest in tools and techniques for making your operation more effective, more efficient, and more productive. GFS will be on-site at booth # 714.
FABTECH is one of the biggest industrial shows we exhibit at, and every year it consistently provides a wealth of great knowledge for attendees on every type of metal fabricating & finishing process that exists. GFS will be on-site at booth # 4042 in the Finishing section.
We look forward to seeing you at these events, and hope that your trips are successful!
