2023 is off to a busy start! To kick of this year, we exhibited at both the SHOT Show and SHOT Show Supplier Showcase in Las Vegas, NV from January 16 – 19. The SHOT Show is the nation’s largest event for professionals in the sport shooting, hunting, and outdoor industry. The Supplier Showcase runs 2 days during the event and is dedicated specifically to suppliers and manufacturers looking to connect with those in these industries.
MFI equipment is a great fit for the sport shooting, hunting and outdoor industry. Our tumblers provide a fast, environmentally friendly solution for polishing and deburring gun parts, knives, and other components requiring a consistent polish or finish. We showcased our HZ-12 High Energy Centrifugal Barrell Finisher in one of our booths during the show.
Overall, SHOT Show 2023 was a great event for MFI. It was our first year exhibiting in the Supplier Showcase, and it helped us connect with dozens of manufacturers in need of polishing solutions for their knife and gun parts.
“Having two separate booths in the different sections of the show made it a challenge, but it also allowed us to have a greater reach during the five days of the event. Many of the attendees we talked with are currently doing all of their post-machining operations like deburring and polishing by hand. So, finding ways to eliminate these manual operations with the use of our equipment can greatly improve their efficiency, and ensure a higher consistency on parts. Some companies were so intrigued, they had parts on their way to our sample testing lab before the show closed on Friday,” stated Cole Mathisen, MFI Sales and Marketing Manager.
We’re looking forward to heading back in 2024!
