  • I’m a maintenance supervisor at the Abbott Nutrition plant in Sturgis, Michigan. I’m in charge of the lubrication program. We’re really lacking. This show has really opened my eyes to a lot of opportunities for our facility.
    Mark Bowen, Abbott Nutrition
  • The learning sessions have been really good. My goal here is to learn more about the lubrication process, the filtration process and how to be a better steward of what I am selling. This is a learning process. It has been a very valuable show. I have learned a lot. There have been a lot of great presenters and speakers.
    Kevin King, Royal Manufacturing
  • I’ve enjoyed it. You are learning the technical side on lubrication, and you are learning the reliability side. Just having that mix I think is great.
    Joe Anderson, J.M. Smucker Co.
  • This has been a fantastic experience. I’ve learned a lot and met a lot of people here. It was great to meet management professionals, engineers and mechanics all on the same road to excellence.
    Brad Little, Greenheck Fan Corp.

    Jacob Wilcox, Roquette America Inc.
  • I found this conference extremely informative and will return to my workplace with many ideas I can implement right away.
    Les Genn, American Castings
  • This is a very informative and useful conference. There is lots of information in each class, and lots of it is put into a ‘real-world’ scenario, making it relatable. Coming from a lubrication background, the oil analysis and other lab testing information really helped further my understanding of this tool. Going forward, I feel I will be much more knowledgeable on our own lab testing and what we can get out of it.
