A group of 25 rotomolders and 16 suppliers attended the full-day All About the Shop Floor regional meeting conducted in Cincinnati at the end of November. Attendees told us it was an excellent meeting. Educational sessions included Preventative Tool Maintenance, Mold Release, How to Network, Resin Specifications, Safety, Hand Tools, Shrinkage & Warpage, and a hands-on What’s Your Problem? with plenty of problem parts!
The cost to attend regional meetings is only $150/member and we typically offer 25% off if you send four or more employees. ARM is currently planning to conduct four regional meetings in 2014.
