Stiles Machinery’s President, Mr. Christian Vollmers, was quoted in 2014 that “we will grow yet again”. It seems that his prediction was accurate for 2015 and will be true again in 2016.
Despite many industry and political headwinds, Stiles Machinery, Inc. had its best performance in the history of the company in 2015. On the heels of many well expected changes in 2015 the prospect for record top line and bottom line results seem obtainable for 2016.
The marketplace for equipment sales is currently very robust and all expectations remain positive despite the distractions from unrest in the world and a dramatic political spectacle in the U.S.
“Our strategies are in place to offer maximum support to our current and future customers” reports Mr. Vollmer.
The prospects are high for a very active IWF 2016, the largest trade show in North America that caters to the woodworking and plastics industries. Stiles Machinery has expanded their booth from the show in 2014 to nearly 26,000 sq. ft. and plans to exhibit over 50 lines of machinery. “The goal this year is to provide our guests a comprehensive experience of all of Stiles Machinery’s many attributes” explains Chris Dolbow, IWF Show Chairman at Stiles. Mr. Dolbow explains that the booth facilities are all new and improved to offer the show attendee choices on how they would like to experience their visit to the Stiles’ booth. Improved sight lines, graphics, hospitality experience, machine presentation, and advanced digital interaction are all hallmarks of Stiles’ vastly enhanced presentation at IWF 2016.
