SantorumFABTECH 2015 Packed to the Rafters

Celebrating manufacturing strength and innovation, FABTECH 2015 has wrapped in Chicago, with 43,836 attendees from more than 90 countries visiting 1700-plus exhibitors in more than 730,000 sq. ft. of space. These record-setting numbers cemented FABTECH 2015 as North America’s largest collaboration of technology, equipment and knowledge in the metalforming, fabricating, welding and finishing industries.

One of the week’s highlights was a visit by former U.S. Senator (R, PA) Rick Santorum, who toured several FABTECH booths. Mr. Santorum even mentioned his visit to FABTECH during the fourth Republican presidential undercard debate on November 10.
Here’s a link to the debate transcript.
