Over seventy (70) attendees participated in the fifth annual Peddinghaus sponsored NASCC Fabricators Motorcycle Tour. The tour kicks off the NASCC show with a special two wheeled tour of modern structural fabrication shops along with the best scenery that the states of Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania has to offer.
No Matter their Country – Attendees Love Peddinghaus:
This year’s group had a distinct international flavor with riders participating from Germany, Austria, Spain, Canada, and Argentina. No problems in communication, though, as Peddinghaus hospitality helps each individual feel they are part of a great traveling “family”.
The participants were welcomed by “The Peddinghaus Riders”. The group started in Washington, DC and made their way through the beautiful state of Maryland to scenic Gettysburg, PA. After a Kentucky Derby themed welcome party, the group enjoyed guided tours of the historic Civil War battlefield, Eisenhower Farm, and the beautiful countryside of nearby Lancaster.
From Fab Shop Assembly to Harley Motorcycle Assembly:
Monday featured a visit to one of the largest, most sophisticated fabricators in the region: Kinsley Manufacturing in York, PA. Featuring two Peddinghaus drill lines, band-saws, FDB plate processing and an AFCPS 823 anglemaster.
What better for a Harley enthusiast than a visit to the Harley Davidson assembly plant? The group toured the actual assembly plant and learned first hand of the quality in manufacture that Harley Davidson puts into each product. Similar to Peddinghaus, they always think of “customers first”!
The final visits on Tuesday were two of the premier steel facilities in the East Coast: Sippel Steel Fabrication and Metals USA in suburban Pittsburgh. Both firms feature Peddinghaus equipment as the backbone of production.
What do Attendees Say?
“Each year the Peddinghaus Fabricators’ Tour gets better and better – I cant’ wait until next year”
“Where else can you learn how to improve your fab shop, enjoy dinner with global fab experts, and see the best parts of the USA as a big two-wheeled family”?
“Peddinghaus always does it best – what else can I say?”
