AWI steps on the gas at Houstex 2017
‘This is just what I need!’, ‘you can supply it in that form’, ‘really, delivery is that quick’…these are just some of the comments our representatives received when AWI exhibited at Houstex 2017 earlier this month.
Footfall to our stand was up again and, despite the oil and gas industry still in the early throes of a revival, there was plenty of interest in our materials and a number of new applications visitors enquired about.
We also spoke to a lot of new customers who were frustrated with extended delivery times from current suppliers, giving us the perfect opportunity to talk about our commitment to getting them their wire within 2 weeks on most standard orders and, for those truly URGENT deliveries, our ‘Emergency Manufacturing Service’ (EMS).
Angus Hogarth commented: “It’s not as big as the Oil Technology Conference also held here in Houston, but we do get a lot of engineers come to Houstex that perhaps wouldn’t go to OTC.
“This provokes a lot of interesting conversations and this time around there were discussions about tighter dimensional tolerances and corrosive environments, whilst a couple of delegates were delighted that we could do so much more than just round wire on a spool.”
Once again visitors and fellow exhibitors were very impressed with the visual AWI booth and were particularly intrigued with the Touch TV. This gave them the opportunity to independently explore and learn about Alloy Wire, what makes us positively different to our rivals and the technical data of our alloys.
