The 5th Annual Mid-Winter Finishers Conference was held 28-29 January 2015 at the Hilton DoubleTree Resort SeaWorld in Orlando, FL. The event featured two tours of local Lockheed Martin facilities: the Fire and Missile Control facility and the Mission System and Training facility. The event also featured table tops with all of the latest advances in metal finishing technology. Our attendees were treated to great presentations from renowned industry professionals such as Tim Pennington, Brian Manty, Mike Aleksinas, Jim Collins, Erica Worsdell, Keith Eidschun, and Jim Jones, along with a surprise presentation by Jeff Hannapel. In addition, Mr. Gil Burlew of the Florida Technology Student Association returned from last year’s event, with even more amazing technology advances presented by his students. All of the talks generated some great discussion.
We are very grateful to all of the suppliers, sponsors, and attendees for supporting this year’s event. We are looking forward to doing it bigger and better next year! Keep checking our website – //www.floridafinisherscorp.com/ – for further details.
