Milacron CEO Tom Goeke stated, “Milacron always enjoys reconnecting with existing and prospective customers at trade shows but there’s something special about the NPE show, we’re in our North America customers backyards and we’re the largest North American plastics industry manufacturer. Milacron is a proud global company with locations all over the world but we’re uniquely equipped to serve our North American customers with excellent, on time parts availability, local field service technicians, and IIOT technologies to the degree our competitors simply cannot with their satellite North American locations”. Goeke added, “At NPE 2018, Milacron welcomes the world to Orlando, FL and this year we’re proud to focus on our industry-leading service and support. It goes without saying our customers are our most important asset at Milacron and all of our product brands are ensuring that we provide world-class, second to none support across all of our technologies. This is my personal promise to each and every customer.”
