Next up on the list of distributor visits was Siding World. New Tech Machinery visited the main office for Siding World located in Detroit, Michigan. The company has 17 total branches throughout Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. The Detroit facility has MACH II machines in stock including the one they use for gutter production jobs. Future plans between Siding World and NTM include: scheduled regional Adjustment Days, updating and sending marketing collateral and following up with each individual branch based on their specific local needs.
New Tech Machinery has started visiting some of our longtime distributors and first on the list was Rain Trade Corp. in Lake Bluff, Ill. NTM flew out to meet them at their home office for conversation to further benefit both companies. Future endeavors include a visit to the NTM facility for training and an adjustment day at the Rain Trade offices.
NTM Says, “Feliz Cinco de Mayo!”
Much more than just another party holiday, the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo celebrates the 1862 Battle of Puebla when the Mexican army defeated France in the Franco-Mexican War. It has nothing to do with the Mexican Independence day (celebrated in September) but this is significant because the Mexican army was severely outnumbered. Cinco de Mayo is often confused for the Mexican Independence day but that is actually in September. In present day, Cinco de Mayo is now celebrated in Mexico and America alike to honor the culture as a whole. Traditions include food, parades, regional music and dance performances. NTM celebrates with some Mexican cuisine
NTM Says, “Happy Administrative Professionals Week”
Every April, the people all over the world who answer phones, keep track of documents and bring order to companies are celebrated by the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP). This year, April 21-27th is Administrative Professionals Week with April 24 2013, being recognized as Adminstrative Professionals Day/ Día de las Profesiones Administrativas.
New Tech Machinery honors its Administration Professionals as pictured to the left.
A little known but vital celebration in industrialized countries is Engineers Week, also known as E-Week, running from February 17-23rd. The celebration was jump started by a coalition called the National Engineers Week Foundation a chapter of the STEM education coalition (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
The purpose of Engineers Week is to reward and recognize the monumental advances within the field and its impact on society both from a professional level and also as a way to get younger generations interested in the field as a career choice. According to a Washington Post article, Mexico is currently the top producer of Engineering graduates at 130,000 students annually. According to the National Society of Professional Engineers there are approximately more than 2 million Engineers in the U.S practicing in a myriad of specific disciplines, all starting from Egyptian pyramid designer Imhotep in 2250 B.C.

Huge crowds watch as Steve Levonyak of New Tech Machinery does a machine demo of our NEW TPM (Tapered Panel Machine) and TSM (Tapered Slitter Machine).
“Please let everyone at New Tech know how excited we were to win the new gutter machine. This will mean so much for our business this winter. I am sure your company was excited also that a true gutter company had won the machine, also a company that had purchased a New Tech 6″ machine a year earlier. Thanks again for everything and hope you have another 20 years!”
