Here at Plymouth Foam, we fully believe in being a part of something bigger. It’s important for us to maintain connections between other companies in our field in order to share ideas and even collaborate with each other. Because of this, we are proud members of the EPS Industry Alliance, and a great way for us to network with those companies is at two annual conferences that the EPS Industry Alliance hosts.
The first conference is held every year in the spring and is called “EPS EXPO.” The conference focuses on important industry issues and EPS business interests. The EXPO includes table top exhibits which feature equipment suppliers and other service providers. The exhibits are a great way to inform attendees about the available suppliers and what services they can provide in order to assist and improve business in the EPS industry. With so many companies in the industry attending the EXPO, just one weekend there is an outstanding opportunity to provide education on current industry topics and networking among companies within the EPS industry.
The second conference in the fall is called the “Performance, Technology & Operations (PTO) Conference.” This opportunity is specifically geared towards EPS plant operations and management as the conference provides discussions and education on current issues and equipment involved in technology and the production process. Other positions that majorly benefit from this conference are plant managers, shift supervisors, floor level personnel, and anyone else involved in EPS production processes.
We are so grateful for these opportunities for two major reasons: it’s important for us to educate ourselves about the latest technology and equipment available in order to improve our production, and therefore, business in general. But also it’s vital to have opportunities to network with similar companies in order to experience new ideas. As a company, we are always striving to be better, because that will always keep YOU (our customers) satisfied. For these reasons, we are annual attendees at the EPS Industry Alliance conferences, and will continue to be in the future.
