Stephen Wright & Alan Donkersley of Thorite recently attended the Gast/Jun-air European Distributor Conference at Gast's headquarters in Benton Harbour, Michigan, USA. For many of the 15 distributor representatives it was the first time to the Gast plant.
The conference afforded the opportunity to not only visit the impressive manufacturing plant and discuss production issues but the get involved with future plans for both brands and distribution within Europe. Some of the most interesting sessions were around the ability to produce customised versions of products to customers specialised requirements and how new products were being developed for both niche and mainstream markets.
