Stiles Machinery Plans Return to IWFGRAND RAPIDS, MI - Stiles Machinery Inc. announced it will exhibit at the International Woodworking Fair, August 22-25 in Atlanta.

The company said its 15,000-square-foot stand will make it the "largest exhibitor" at this year's show at the Georgia World Congress Center.

“We are excited to connect with the industry again in Atlanta after skipping the 2010 show due to the low economic conditions which were present in the U.S. during that time period,” said Stephan Waltman, vice president of marketing and communications. “IWF has been a proven sales platform for decades and we look forward to meeting many customers at the 2012 show. “

“Do More with Less” will be Stiles' IWF 2012 theme. The company plans to staff up its booth with a team of experts to meet one-on-one with attendees to discuss unique strategies to satisfy their production opportunities and challenges.

“Because customers now expect new products with more features, at lower costs, and faster than ever, manufacturers must also reinvent how they deliver goods and support their customers for the entire product life cycle," Waltman said. “Our approach must embrace consultative selling where we engage the customer in a holistic process that encompasses the complete solution, a total production solution, and brings real value to the process.”

Stiles' IWF exhibit will include the IntelliStore, a new panel management system from Bargstedt. (See accompanying video.) The system also will be the subject of a showroom event at Stiles headquarters in Grand Rapds, April 18-19.
