This year’s FABTECH manufacturing event occurred from September 11th to 14th at Chicago’s McCormick Place. The event set new benchmarks for innovation and excellence. It highlighted advancements in the metal forming, fabricating, welding, and finishing industries. At Sonic, we were honored and excited to be part of this groundbreaking assembly.
An Unmatched Assembly of Industry Professionals
FABTECH 2023 lived up to its reputation as North America’s premier gathering for B2B professionals, boasting an impressive attendance of nearly 50,000 industry insiders across 80 countries. As Sonic’s first year at the expo, our team engaged in high-value conversations with professionals from diverse fields.
Showcasing Sonic’s Innovations
Fabtech’s expansive show floor spread across 825,325 square feet and featured an unparalleled array of over 1,500 world-class suppliers. Sonic took this opportunity to showcase our NEXT toolbox series and our Sonic Foam System, a comprehensive tool organization solution designed to enhance workplace efficiency (5S). We aim to get our advanced tooling solutions into the hands of professionals like you—people committed to quality, efficiency, and safety in their workplaces. For those already implementing 5S practices in their workspaces, our Sonic Foam System offers a seamless integration, enhancing Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain.
Insightful Engagements and New Partnerships
Furthermore, the Sonic team had many meaningful interactions, particularly with mechanics and technicians who use tools daily. These conversations often delved into the specific challenges professionals face in their roles, offering us invaluable insights into their needs. In many instances, the dialogues naturally shifted toward long-term partnerships, setting the stage for future collaboration and mutually beneficial engagements. Sonic prides itself in our collaborative partnerships and student programs to assist emerging technicians in reaching their full potential.

FABTECH 2023 was more than just an exhibition space for our new products. It was a learning hub, immersing us in the collective wisdom and best practices of our industry. The event featured 1,500 world-class suppliers and 235 new exhibitors. Over 575 new products were launched. This showcases the industry’s dedication to innovation and sustainability.
