Manufacturers are looking north

American woodworking manufacturers will have a strong presence at Canada’s major trade show, the Woodworking Machinery & Supply Expo, scheduled for Oct. 27-29 at the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto.

For the first time, the Wood Machinery Manufacturers of America will sponsor a pavilion at the show, featuring exhibits by eight member companies, including Black Bros., Hendrick Mfg., Mereen-Johnson, RazorGage, Safety Speed, The Original Saw, TradeSoft and Williams & Hussey.

“Canada is an excellent market for us,” said Steve Carter, Williams & Hussey’s CEO and chair of WMMA’s International Business Development Committee, in a statement. “In 2010 Canada imported $252 million in woodworking equipment, $61 million from the U.S.A. and an increase of 41 percent over 2009. 2011 is looking good as well and we are looking forward to working with the WMMA and the sponsors of the WMS to showcase our equipment.”

Other WMMA members exhibiting on their own include Delcam Artcam, Franklin Adhesives, Graco, Klingspor, Microvellum, Osborne Wood Products, and The Sherman Williams Co. Many more will be exhibiting through their Canadian dealers, according to the WMMA.
