If you are in the market to buy finishing or bending equipment, have we got good news for you! Edge Finisher Co., a founding Member in the International Plastics Fabricators Association, has announced a 10% discount, for IPFA Members, on all new equipment and new tooling purchases. As a manufacturer and supplier of edge finishing, edge polishing, and flame polishing equipment, and linear heat tables, their products offer fabricators the opportunity to increase part quality and shop productivity. The discount you can earn as a member of the IPFA will more than cover the cost of joining our growing association. For additional information, contact Darrell Bishop, Edge Finisher Co. at 800-625-5863, and thank you Edge Finisher Co. for your continued support.
We are also pleased to announce a new Manufacturers’ Representative Membership level for the association. Manufacturer’s Reps are very instrumental to the sale of plastic stock shapes and equipment for many manufacturers. Their product knowledge can often be invaluable to a fabricator when developing bids for jobs and sourcing material and equipment. The IPFA would like to ask them to take an active role in helping shape our young association and further our industry by joining us in our efforts to provide plastics fabricators with the latest information on materials and machinery available today. For additional information, contact our office at 630-980-4740 or click here to visit our web site.
Lastly, we are in the final stages of negotiating additional benefits for our members including discounted professional services (legal and accounting), a discounted freight program, and health insurance programs. By joining together as an industry, we can leverage our common interests and reduce our costs - helping each of us to run more efficient and profitable business.
And finally, the association now offers a Fax on Demand Service for membership applications and information. You simply call 630-980-4010 from your fax machine and when the association’s machine answers, press 02*. When the second message begins, press 11*. You will hear a tone at which time you press "start" on your fax machine and hang-up if you have a separate handset. The information will then be faxed directly to your fax machine. Additional information will soon be available on the programs we mentioned above as well as future workshops and seminars.
The International Plastics Fabricators Association was developed to provide our industry with a common voice. As plastic stock shape fabricators today, we not only compete across town, but around the world for business. We can all use a little help running our businesses better, purchasing products and services at competitive rates, and keeping current on the latest techniques in fabrication and developments in machinery and tooling for our industry. But to benefit, you have to get involved.
For more information, call the IPFA today at 630-980-4740, try the new Fax on Demand service, or visit our web site at www.fabricators.org to learn more about what the IPFA has to offer you.
