Posted by Scotchman Industries on Mar 13, 2018 2:12:28 PM

Scotchman Industries is going international to attend two of North America’s largest metal fabrication events: FABTECH Mexico (May 2-4, 2018), and FABTECH Canada (June 12-14, 2018)

We’ll be taking our ironworkers, circular cold saws, and other metal fabrication products to THREE different locations in North America so metal fabricators across the continent can see first-hand how our machines have the ability to add value to their businesses.

At Scotchman, we’re always looking for opportunities to make connections with fabricators and businesses–– learning about their metal fabrication needs and discussing how our products and dedicated sales and service teams can help.

Although it’s still a few months away, registrations are officially open for FABTECH Mexico and FABTECH Canada. Keep reading for a preview of both events, and learn why you should make plans to visit the Scotchman booth!

Women in Manufacturing at Scotchman Industries

Posted by Scotchman Industries on Mar 8, 2018 3:41:01 PM

Today's U.S. manufacturers are facing an impending skills gap as a generation of manufacturing workers prepare themselves for retirement.

If this prediction is correct, the manufacturing skills gap will continue to grow and create an even greater challenge for American manufacturers. The shortage of skilled workers is a serious challenge which needs to be addressed with high priority.

Scotchman Sales Team: Real People Ready to Help with Your Metal Fabrication Equipment Needs

Posted by Scotchman Industries on Jan 29, 2018 2:40:38 PM

Every business claims to have excellent customer service, but we all know this claim isn't always the truth. 

In today’s world, it has become harder to find a real person to speak with on the phone, let alone see them face to face. All too often, when trying to navigate through an automated phone system it can become a long and drawn out process. When you’re provided with a long list of options to choose from, with many of these options leading you to a voice mail box anyway or directing you to a website.

This form of “service” is rarely helpful, and usually quite frustrating. Luckily for you, Scotchman Industries believes in the human connection and highly values open communication. Which is why we ALWAYS have someone answering our phone during office hours.

At Scotchman, our business is building ironworkers and cold saws, but our company was also founded on the principle of providing well-built machinery to help our customers find efficient solutions for their shop needs.
