I just want to take the opportunity to thank your organization for the support provided to ABB. Your energy and prompt efforts were outstanding. MACF’s ability to connect to the local industry was essential to success. We were requested to provide two shop tours for an ABB group of professionals studying lean manufacturing. With your help, two very successful tours were arranged.

As the owner of my company, I was curious how well the table top exhibits at the MACF would work. I paid $300 to have an exhibitors table at the  Manufacturing & Simulation Exchange event in August. I met an engineer from a company in Orlando that I had never done business with.  Since the event I’ve received $7100.00 of purchase orders from that one company, not counting the numerous other companies I’ve networked with since the event.  I’ve done two other events since and am thrilled I’ve been able to be involved with the MACF.
