There is officially a day on the calendar with our name on it. It’s true, just ask New York State Senator Mark Grisanti. Mr. Grisanti stopped by our Launch Event yesterday and decreed that May 1, 2014 be known as “Staub Incorporated Day” in the great state of New York. So there’s that.
Senator Grisanti wasn’t the only big name at our facility. We hosted State Assemblyman Sean Ryan, County Legislator Lynn Dixon, Hamburg Town Supervisor Steven Walters, and Village of Hamburg Mayor Tom Moses. More importantly though, we got to celebrate our launch of Staub Additive and the debut of our rebranding efforts with our employees, customers, and friends. We invited a select group of prospective customers as well, and hope to work with many of them in the very near future. Honored guests were two of our favorite vendors, The Quilted Squirrel and CADimensions. The “Squirrels” drove the rebranding process that we are so proud of, and their squirrel-prints are all over our company today. We purchased both of our 3D Printers from CADimensions, who have gone above and beyond what most would expect from an equipment dealer. We’re lucky to work with some outstanding customers and vendors.
Even Elizabeth Banks from Channel 7 stopped by!
Yesterday we opened our doors and showed off our Grimsby Drive facility. Our presentations were packed, with standing room only in our presentation room. (Billy won $1 from Tony Staub for that one!) While there was great interest in our machining centers, robots, and linear pallet pool, the star of the show was our brand new Additive department. The gleaming floor, tables of parts, and two state-of-the-art printers growing parts made for a very exciting scene. Travis, Billy, and I (along with the CADimensions crew) spent the day educating our guests about 3D Printing. Our discussions ranged from broad 3D Printing introductions all the way to describing how our new Connex3 digitally mixes materials to provide different shore value options.
Our staff shined, doing their best tour guide impersonations. The beer was cold and the food was excellent. It was a great way to spend our first official day as Staub Incorporated. We hope that our guests enjoyed themselves as much as we did.
