Kern Rounds Out the 2017 Summer Trade Shows

Last week, Kern Laser Systems exhibited at both the NBM Long Beach show and the AWFS Fair.  This rounded out a busy spring and summer trade show schedule for our company.

The AWFS Fair is the sole woodworking show that our company exhibited at for 2017.  Our salesmen got the opportunity to network with not only woodworkers, but also many different industries conducive to laser cutting and engraving.  We are signed up to exhibit at the 2019 AWFS Fair that will be taking place in Las Vegas, NV.  For future show information please visit their show website.

The N.B.M. Show in Long Beach was one of the two N.B.M. Shows that our company exhibits at each year.  Keith Hagen, Salesmen, stated that “We came away with some quality prospects, and it was great to see interest in both our LaserCELL and HSE systems.” We will also be exhibiting at this show in 2018.

The remaining shows we will be exhibiting at include the SGIA Expo in October and Fabtech in November.  Stay tuned for more details regarding these shows.

Kern will invest in a 20,800 sq. ft. expansion that will more than double its current manufacturing and research and development departments.
