Stiles Machinery welcomed nearly 130 manufacturers across North America to our High Point, North Carolina, facility June 14-15 for their Manufacturing Solutions Seminar.
This bi-annual event showcases solutions to current challenges facing the manufacturing industry and highlights the newest advancements in industrial machinery, software, and streamlining processes.
The Manufacturing Solutions Seminar was split into two separate days, focusing on a different industry sector each day: Wednesday focused on Panel Processing, and Thursday was about solutions in Solid Wood and Surface Technologies. Each day, attendees engaged in presentations and live machinery demonstrations from various educators and subject matter experts.
The key topics covered at the seminar ranged from the latest manufacturing trends, how to unlock new machine capabilities by upgrading your equipment, the advantages of automating your production, and more.
“This latest Manufacturing Solutions Seminar was attended by a variety of customers, all with one thing in common: getting better,” said Thomas Allott, Stiles University Manager and MC at the June Manufacturing Solutions Seminar. “The energy was high, networking was strong, and the engagement was hard to replicate.”
After the primary presentations each day, event participants could choose the breakout session they wanted to attend. The sessions covered the topics: how to utilize software to streamline production, ways to improve your sales and data generation, air and dust solutions, and defining ways to optimize your manufacturing with Schuler Consulting.
“One of my favorite moments from this past Manufacturing Solutions Seminar was seeing manufacturers from the same and different industries networking and benchmarking each other,” said Allott. “We try to provide as much information as possible during this event, but it is hard to replicate the power of learning through networking. This was very present at this June event.”
Guests had various networking opportunities throughout the seminar, with periodic breaks, lunchtime each day, and two evening receptions. These social times they have fostered connections between manufacturers, business owners, and industry professionals over drinks and food.
The next Manufacturing Solutions Seminar is planned for November. Stay tuned at stilesmss.com for event dates, registration, and other details.
