Industrial Seats, a division of United Group Inc., displayed at the Waste Expo in Las Vegas between May 1st and May 3rd. This was a new show for us and it was a great learning experience. Although we have served the heavy equipment and truck markets for more than 20 years the specific market of solid waste and recycling is new to us. Waste Expo was a large show held at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Show statistics reference 500+ exhibitors, 11,000+ attendees and 6,600+ qualified decision makers.
Industrial Seats stocks the Sears Seating C2 truck seats with mounting brackets for a variety of waste trucks. Sears has a large share of this market with the C2 seat and it was very apparent when viewing the booths of the OEM dump truck manufacturers. Sears Seating was also at the show and it was a great opportunity to support our OEM Seat supplier as part of their aftermarket program. We learned a lot and found that we can definitely provide a needed service to equipment dealers in this industry. Not only do they welcome the additional source for the C2 but the customers have all types of heavy equipment that need seats!
You can check out the popular C2 seat in the photos below and see how we looked at the show! In 2013 the Waste Expo will be in New Orleans!
