For the second year in a row now, iRex has attended Austin’s local Central Texas Electronics Association Tech Forum and Expo as an exhibitor. There were 37 companies exhibiting and nearly 200 registered attendees this year. The iRex booth (manned primarily by Trey Hall, John Sansoucy and Rich Burgess) was filled with many samples of custom cables and PCBA’s hand picked from active and past projects to demonstrate the wide berth of services and capabilities we have to offer as a technology partner and contract manufacturer. Just like last year, we had an especially good presence due to our ability to demonstrate how we successfully, repeatedly and reliably encapsulate a PCBA in-line on a custom cable. We were greeted with excellent feedback from numerous existing clients and we were thrilled to meet with potential future clients. In a marketplace where so many companies are seeing a drastic slow down or flat growth, iRex was pleased to have such enthusiastic visitors stop by our booth.
As would be predicted, the TyRex Blue Wheel was shown to our many visitors to the booth and was the most popular piece of literature taken from our table. For those who aren’t aware, the Blue Wheel serves to illustrate not only the structure of the TyRex Technology Family of Companies, but also how our companies work together to provide clients with our premier products and services.
A pleasant surprise was the increased interest in Austin Reliability Labs this year. There was almost as much interest in ARL as there was in iRex, which is just one more step in the right direction for our family of companies. We’d like to give special thanks from iRex to David Rahe of ARL for stopping by and visiting our booth!
Overall, our presence at the CTEA Tech Forum and Expo allowed us to continue to build the brands of iRex and TyRex as true problem solvers that excel at providing the engineering support needed to qualify our customer’s cables and designs. It is thanks to those clients that we have continued to grow even in these difficult times. We believe the opportunity to attend tradeshows like this is hugely significant to the continued success of TyRex Group, and the chance to meet and learn from others in the industry can only strengthen our expertise. Plans are already being made to attend this expo again next year and to evaluate exhibiting at some of the other Expo locations.
