HOMETOWN: Brooklyn, OH
YEARS IN THE INDUSTRY: 4 Years
FIRST YEAR ATTENDED MATS: 2022
Why Did You Attend MATS?
“I attended MATS to be able to see new products that I have never seen before. I was able to connect and network with new companies, and research and purchase new products to help my operations with the help of product engineers and experts.”
Why Do You Recommend MATS?
“I recommend attending MATS because it truly is a learning ground for all sectors of the trucking industry. While you are driving on the road, you can miss a lot of up to date information. By attending this show, you are able to learn and gather the newest information all in one setting.”
“MATS provides an open forum where I can actually test out and see products live and in-person. I am able to research and make purchase decisions here that I know will directly improve my business.”
“At MATS, I was able to listen in to some seminars about growing your trucking business and operations. These were very educational because they provided me with real information and answers to questions I have always had in this industry. I am still young in the owner operator industry, so these seminars provided a wealth of knowledge that I have been able to take back to my business.”
Post Show Purchasing:
“Going into MATS 2022, I knew I wanted to find products to make help load securement easier and more efficient for my business. I downloaded the app beforehand to see what exhibitors I wanted to visit, and landed on TarpStop. After speaking with TarpStop, I decided that I wanted to make some changes to how my flatbed operates and was able to test out some of their speed binders. Since MATS has ended, I have followed up with TarpStop and purchased the speed binders.”
