Additionally with 2024 being an election year, there was continued conversation of trade policies. As well as further concern for political unrest that could impact foreign supplier chain reliability 

He praised Design-2-Part for their excellent organization, making it easy for Deco Products to set up their booth.

They talked to attendees about zinc as a material used for die casting manufacturing parts.  

One continued trend from visitors was the desire to find stable, robust, and local sources of supply. Many people at the show expressed concerns about the risks in the supply chain. They wanted to mitigate such risk with a “made in the USA” supplier was a common topic and goal for many at the show.  

The Design-2-Part Show served as an ideal platform for Deco Products to address these inquiries. Display their expertise in zinc die casting and highlight the benefits of domestic production. The event facilitated meaningful conversations and connections with potential customers seeking reliable, high-quality zinc die casting solutions.
