First Year at the World’s Largest Machining Expo This year marked a huge milestone for Diversified Machine Systems. Despite our over 32 years of experience in the industry, 2013 was the first year exhibiting at the world’s largest machining expo – EMO Hannover (http://emo-hannover.de) which featured over 2,100 exhibitors in 16 halls representing 43 countries showcasing their innovations to industrial users from around the world under the event’s keynote slogan of ‘Intelligence in Production’. In one week, the trade show attracted almost 145,000 trade visitors from 100 different nations. These experts varied in industries such as automotive, aerospace, electrical engineering, precision mechanics and related industries. DMS featured the Enclosed 5 Axis Euro CNC Router in Hall 13 / Stand 25. Read about it in the press release here. Received like we’d been there for years. We were fortunate that we were warmly-received, many people knew about us as if we’d been there in previous years, and it resulted in a lot of success. Many people we spoke with told us they know about DMS and had research on our company before stopping by our booth. We had at least 5 meetings every day with potential distributors since many of them are looking to enhance their offerings for their client base in Europe. These distributors were looking for high speed machine centers for composites, aluminum, and honeycomb, we were one of the few there doing just that. We will be announcing new distributors across Europe pending results from the show. Partnership with Fagor Automation shown to the max. We are also seeing our Fagor partnership in full force in Europe with all of the support they have launched on behalf of our products. Everyone working over at the Fagor Automation booth came over and visited with us. We were especially delighted to meet some of their team members from Fagor Taiwan, Spain and Belgium. Not only was Fagor a friendly and generous partner at the show, but they were also active on the online community as well. Many social media posts from Fagor featured images that they’d taken in our booth and then shared. We’re thrilled to have such thriving, engaging and supportive partner who is already so active in Europe as we continue to grow in this market. Didn’t make it to the show?
