Attendees at the MFASC show in Montebello.
The Metal Finishing Association of Southern California and the Metal Finishing Association of Northern California joined with members of the San Diego group to hold a suppliers conference and tradeshow on Sept. 10 and 12 in Los Angeles and in San Jose.
The two shows held within three days allowed vendors to meet with platying shops in the two areas, as well as allowing for coordinated training sessions at each show.
The MFANC usually held their vendor showcase in February, but that event was moved to coincide with the Southern California show.
Attendees also got the chance to meet and talk with new Executive Director Norm Plotkin, who was hired this summer to lead the organizations.
