Manufacturers network at Mold Expo in Windsor, ON
- November 13, 2019
Manufacturers in southwestern Ontario joined Shop Metalworking Technology for the inaugural Mold Expo 2019.
Canada’s only mold, tool and die show was held November 6 at the Ciociaro Club in Windsor, Ont.
Greg Paliouras, publisher of Shop Metalworking Technology magazine, says the event was organized to help bring buyers and sellers in the mold making industry together to discuss the specific needs of this sector. Attendees had the opportunity to meet face-to-face with more than 45 suppliers to the sector of machine tools, cutting tools, CAD CAM software, metrology and other manufacturing services.
The one-day event featured keynote speaker Harry Moser, president of the Reshoring Initiative. A strong advocate of bringing manufacturing back to North America, Moser provided some interesting insights into how suppliers can help support initiatives to encourage manufacturers to invest in Canada and the U.S. noting that Canadian manufacturers are well positioned to compete against offshore companies.
Mold Expo was supported by Marquee Partner SME, one of Canada’s largest manufacturing industry organizations, sponsored by machine tool distributor Megatel and endorsed by the Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association (APMA), Automate Canada, the Canadian Association of Mold Makers (CAMM), the Canadian Machine Tool Distributors’ Association (CMTDA) and the Canadian Tooling and Machining Association (CTMA).
