Connecting with Happy Clients at the Assembly & Automation Expo

The PARTsolutions Crew at AATE 2012 June 19-21, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL

The PARTsolutions crew hit the road last week and headed to Chi-Town for the 2012 Assembly and Automation Expo, June 19-21 at McCormick Place. While the turn out was a little lighter than expected, we were able to connect with many of our customers and catch up.  It was great to see some familiar faces and meet many new folks. It’s always nice to hear first hand how PARTsolutions is helping companies succeed.

Here’s a snap shot of some of the folks we bumped into at the show.
