Injection machine manufacturer Nissei Plastic Industrial Co. Ltd., an early dropout from the NPE 2009 show, has reconsidered its decision and will exhibit at the Chicago trade show after all.
According to company officials, the reversal followed a personal appeal by Society of the Plastics Industry (SPI) president Bill Carteaux to Hozumi Yoda, Nissei’s president.
The SPI, which is the show’s manager, had announced a reduction in rates for exhibitors two weeks ago.
“[Our decision to rejoin the show] is all made possible by SPI’s very generous package. Without that, we couldn’t have done it,” said Nobu Kobayashi, marketing team coordinator of Nissei America Inc. of Anaheim, Calif.
According to Kobayashi, Nissei America is going to cut the size of its booth in half. Originally, Nissei was going to take seven or eight injection molding machines to a booth measuring 8,800 square feet. Now, Kobayashi said, Nissei will bring three presses to its 4,400-square-foot booth in the South Hall of Chicago’s McCormick Place
