NAHAD 2019 is happening April 2-7 in Las Vegas.
We'll be there along with many fellow hose industry professionals sharing in ongoing education, training, networking, and fun at the beautiful Bellagio Resort and Casino. This is the 35th Annual Meeting & Convention. Stop by our booth #709 to see what Air-Way has to offer you and your business this year.
It is a members-only organization committed to those in the hose and hose accessories industry (hydraulic fittings, adapters, couplings and more). Members gain useful information in tools and resources to give them leverage in the industry. This conference is an exciting opportunity to connect with industry leaders, business partners and friends from across the country.
We look forward to seeing you there! Learn more about this year's NAHAD Annual Meeting at nahad.org.
Air-Way Terminology – Fittings or Adapters?If you go to the homepage of Air-Way Global Manufacturing, in big, bold letters it says, “Hydraulic Fittings & Adapters Manufacturer.” In our line of work, these two words - fittings and adapters – are quite interchangeable. Do they mean the exact same thing? We’ve talked with our team of experts including engineering, production, and sales reps to get the details.
70 years, 4 Generations, One Air-Way Global ManufacturingAir-Way Global Manufacturing continues to be an industry leader by supplying hydraulic fittings and adapters in an ever-changing global marketplace. While 98 percent of family-businesses fail by now, we feel compelled to explore our past and how we’ve stayed family-focused for 4 generations – and counting. It certainly wasn’t easy long ago, just like it is not easy today. It took a lot of perseverance and skill, while experiencing both wins and losses to get where we are now.
The Tariff Situation – Impact on Materials & ManufacturingThe trade war between the U.S. and China has become close to a year-long affair that has affected nearly every industry nation-wide, and like many manufacturers, Air-Way isn’t immune to the impacts. As tariffs have been ramping up since the start of 2018, it’s hard to understand the current state of trade and what it means for manufacturing. That topic is too big for a single article, but we would like to try and explain the specific tariffs that are affecting our entire industry and Air-Way’s manufacturing and supply chain.
