The Coating House recently had the privilege of attending the Design-2-Part Show held at the Mohegan Sun Exposition Center in Uncasville, CT. This annual event, now in its third year at this location, stands as the region’s largest design and contract manufacturing trade show. 

For businesses like ours, providing specialized coated and uncoated fasteners and fittings, attending such shows is not just an opportunity but a necessity to stay abreast of industry trends, connect with peers, and explore potential collaborations.

One of the most rewarding aspects of the Design-2-Part Show was the chance to reconnect with old friends and partners. These familiar faces brought a sense of camaraderie to the event, reminding us of the strong relationships that underpin the manufacturing community.

Equally exciting was the opportunity to forge new connections. The show boasted 240 American suppliers showcasing their expertise in custom parts, stock parts, and manufacturing services. From design and prototypes to production, finishing, and assemblies, the array of offerings was impressive. 

One thing that sets this show apart-it focuses on American suppliers. In an era where supply chain resilience is paramount, being able to engage with businesses like us – local manufacturers who can mitigate risks, shorten lead times, and ensure timely delivery of parts is invaluable.

In conclusion, our experience at the Design-2-Part Show 2024 was enriching. It reinforced the importance of industry events in fostering collaboration, innovation, and growth within the manufacturing sector. We look forward to implementing the insights gained and nurturing the relationships established for mutual success in the future.
