Press Release Body: Later this month, October 29-30, 2008 at the Reliant Center at Reliant Park - Hall A2, the AmCon Contract Manufacturing Expo will be held. There will be many engineers/buyers that visit from mid-size companies from Houston, Austin, San Antonio and throughout the Southwest. Engineers and buyers attending an AmCon Contract Manufacturing Expo can find one or multiple sources to take a project from concept or prototype to finished product quickly and at competitive prices. OEMs can find sources for engineering, design, prototypes, forming, fabricating, machining, finishing, assembly and electronic manufacturing services all under one roof. Whether looking for one part or production runs, attendees find multiple sources from which to choose. AmCon offers attendees a unique opportunity to investigate a variety of manufacturing options, both new and traditional, and find the best processes and materials for specific applications. Attendees view actual samples of products that have been produced for other OEMs in their industry and can get quotes on current projects and compare quality, pricing, and lead times from multiple vendors all in a few hours.
Recently www.houstonmanufacturer.com profiled this event. In the feature article, manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, profiled both Kati Olson, President, of AmCon as well as several former attendees who noted this event is where job shops and contract manufacturers can meet face-to-face with serious OEM buyers of custom manufacturing services from the region.
Vantage Technology is the premier manufacturer of third-party certified electrical connectors for use in hazardous environments. Cheryl Reid is the Purchasing Manager and said of her AmCon experience, "It is a good place to meet regional suppliers and to get ideas on what is available. I like to order from suppliers in my state when possible, an AmCon regional manufacturing event helps. I also am always looking for ISO certified machine shops, and they are easy to spot at the expo."
Stephen Ehrlich is Chief Mechanical Engineer for ACR Electronics. Ehrlich said of his AmCon Expo experience, "The best benefit from attending these types of events is seeing the latest offerings from the various companies and seeing what they can do for my company. I usually attend the AmCon show with others...all being Engineers or Designers."
Only AmCon shows provide a "hands on" one-on-one education. Since the exhibits are staffed with top management and technical personnel, attendees have an in-depth discussion regarding project design, materials and production issues. AmCon shows are free, including seminars on a variety of manufacturing processes and quality issues. To register for the Houston, Texas event go to: www.AmConshows.com.
