Pack Expo 2014 – Chicago

Engineered Automation of Maine has just completed a very successful Trade Show this first week of November in Chicago. This was Pack Expo International, which is the trade show of PMMI, the Packaging Machinery Manufacturing Institute of which EAM is a proud and active member.
There was a little apprehension on our part that our 10’x10’ booth might be lost in the Jungle of over a million square feet of show space, with many large companies composed of huge booths and displays. This feeling was quickly dispelled, as there was much interest in our line of Label Applicators which we displayed, and discussions of Custom Automation Equipment projects which we are so well known for. We had the pleasure of meeting with a few current customers that travelled from around the country to attend this show.
2015 will find EAM at two more Pack Expo trade shows, Philadelphia in February and Las Vegas in September, as we continue to grow and strengthen our position in the manufacturing arena. EAM01

Metal Fabrication and Automation Technology is Alive and Well at Pack Expo 2013!

The Pack Expo, Las Vegas show, put on by PMMI, the Association of Packaging and Processing was a must-attend industry event this past September. There were a few hundred companies displaying automation of some kind, all requiring tubing frames, precision sheet metal panels, guards, chutes, card feeders and labelers.

Always on the lookout to collaborate and provide solutions for some of the more complicated fabrication and manufacturing problems, Mark Whitmore Bob Bartlett attended the show. Their mission of looking for better ideas on how to automate various concepts, look for suppliers for components and network with other industry experts was a complete success. They were also able to cement EAM Inc and Prescott Metal’s reputation as the go-to service provider for many prospective customers and partners.

EAM is in the process of joining PMMI, with plans to display at this show going forward. We’ll see you next year!
