IWF 2008 Recap

September 30th, 2008

International Woodworking Machinery & Furniture Supply Fair-USA®

ANEST IWATA USA, Inc. participated in the International Woodworking Machinery & Furniture Supply Fair-USA® from August 20th through the 23rd. Visitors from over 80 countries and all 50 states were in attendance at one of the largest trade shows in the world. 1,324 companies were on hand exhibiting with over 800,000 net square feet of product displays.

ANEST IWATA showcased our industrial line of equipment including automatic solutions featuring our new manifold automatic spray guns. Our 13:1 air-assisted airless system with the MSG200 spray gun provides a great solution for waterborne stains and topcoats. Some of the other highlights were our double diaphragm pumps and extension guns.
Although the show as a whole didn’t set any attendance records, we noticed steady booth traffic and a more motivated buyer profile. With the hard economic times facing the industry, I think the companies visiting IWF kept the travel numbers down and only sent users and decision makers. This made for a very satisfying show experience for our employees and accumulated many solid leads for our distributors across North America.
Our thanks to Stand-Out Services for their help with the booth and to all of our distributors and end users for attending.
