With the manufacturing sector leading the country’s economic recovery, it is imperative for manufacturers to stay on top of the latest technologies and processes. With more than 13,000 manufacturing and engineering companies in the greater Houston region, it is likely many area manufacturers will be attending the biennial HOUSTEX Advanced Manufacturing Expo at the George R. Brown Convention Center, April 18-20.

HOUSTEX, produced by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), has showcased advanced machine, tools, cutting-edge production systems and pioneering innovations since 1976. It attracts manufacturing professionals in the oil and gas, aerospace, general manufacturing and emerging industries. The expo offers attendees information and technologies to cut costs, work lean, achieve world-class quality and boost customer satisfaction.

‘Everything is changing in manufacturing,” said Dave Morton, of SME and the HOUSTEX show manager. ‘Everybody needs to know what’s new, how they can improve their operations and where things are going in the industry. HOUSTEX is the place for that.”
