Products Finishing (Cincinnati, Ohio) announced its participation in the new Top Shops Expo + Conference. An expansion of Products Finishing’s annual Top Shops Benchmarking program, the Top Shops Expo will combine three days of exhibits, education, and networking to deliver a range of solutions to North American contract manufacturing businesses.

Debuting October 12 – 14, 2021, at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, Top Shops Expo’s mission is to raise the profile and redefine the potential of North American manufacturing by providing participants unique insights and business solutions in three key areas: business improvement; technology transfer; and North American-based production sourcing, reshoring and onshoring.

“Since its debut, the Products Finishing’s Top Shops benchmarking program has helped thousands of coating businesses benchmark and improve their operations. With the Top Shops Expo, we’re introducing additional ways for North American finishing businesses to not just better know but to better grow their businesses by connecting them to more data, more technology and more business development opportunities,”  notes Products Finishing's publisher, Todd Luciano.
