From the Editor – May/June 2022

Since 2009, the kickoff of spring for me has been my attendance at the EWPT Expo in Milwaukee. Although Ive seen snow on the fledgling daffodils once or twice, its always an exciting and refreshing time. The familiar faces and emerging technologies have provided a plethora of material for us to cover on these pages. This show is key in helping us provide important content and opportunities for you, our readers. I can imagine how tough it has been on you folks not having face-to-face interaction with suppliers and peers.

But its 2022, and weve all made our arrangements to exhibit at the show, May 10th – 12th, at the Milwaukee Center. I cant tell you how excited we are. There are some incredible workshops and seminars planned for all three days, with exhibits open Wednesday and Thursday. And of course, all the wonderful food, drink and entertainment. Search EWPT Expo for more information and a full conference schedule.

This issue deals a lot with supply chain difficulties, and Im sure that will be a large part of discussions at the show. I think youll find the articles here provide an interesting roadmap through some of the issues we are all facing.

Feel free to let us know some of the issues you are experiencing by contacting me directly. We enjoy researching with our advertiser partners to help you build strategies to grow your business. Alternatively, stop by and see us at booth 1225. We would love to hear your suggestions for the publication and learn about the subjects you would like us to cover in future issues.

Keep plugging away,

Joe Tito
