Klise Manufacturing Co. was one of 7 wood working companies invited to host a plant tour for the Wood Components Manufacturers Association Fall Conference. The conference consisted of 2 days of activities including plant tours, speakers, and wood technology Expo.
Klise was one of the first stop for the tour and greeted guest openly and warmly with breakfast snacks and refreshments. The allotted time for the tour called for a tight time window for Klise tour guides to provide 100 plus years worth of history, wood working experience, and manufacturing technology. Klise was proud to present its in house tooling and explain the processes involved in Klise wood mouldings.
WCMA leaders were able to provide Klise tour guides with microphones and attendees with headphones so all was audible during the tour. Klise tour guides made an effort to introduce those who were unfamiliar with Klise Grilles to the actual weaving process.
Overall, participating in the WCMA Fall Conference was a fun and exciting learning experience for both Klise and for those who attended other plant tours. We hope to be invited to host more tours and continue to support the woodworking community.
