AWISCO Hosts Annual Trade Show - 6/7/2012
Rain and the threat of thunderstorms did not stop more than 850 people from attending AWISCO’s (Maspeth, NY) Annual Trade Show. “The rain encouraged customers to spend more time under the tents with our vendor partners,” says AWISCO President Lloyd Robinson. Sixty vendor partners exhibited the latest in welding, cutting, safety and industrial technology. In attendance were more than 40 welding students and staff from New York’s School of Cooperative Technical Education, as well as apprentices from the Iron Workers Local 40 & 36 Joint Training Facility and Local 15 of the Plumbers Union. “Working with local technical schools is one of the ways distributors can contribute to the next generation of welders, who will also be the next generation of customers,” says Robinson.
