This isn’t just an exposition; it’s a
tradition. The year 2017 marked its 50th anniversary and the line-up
for World Ag
Expo 2018 is looking as strong as ever.
World Ag Expo continues to be a marketplace
and a celebration of all things ag. Visitors are likely to find whatever it is
they need at this year’s show. They can explore the latest breakthroughs in agricultural
machinery, post-harvest equipment, and biotech advancements.
Expect at World Ag Expo 2018
From February 13 to 15, 2018,
the International Agri-Center in Tulare, California will host 1,600 exhibitors.
Suppliers and progressive agri-businesses from all over the country will
display the latest techniques and products aimed at increasing farm yield.
The 2.5 million square feet of exhibit space
will be jam packed with people hungry to bring innovation to agriculture.
Leaders from heavy weight agri-focused companies will be in attendance, looking
for ways to promote sustainability in their operations.
The free seminars will provide insights that
farmers, dairy workers and ranchers will find invaluable.
Bearing at Booth 4500 Pavilion D
For those in the market for long-lasting,
reliable agricultural bearings, PEER Bearing will be exhibiting at Booth 4500
PEER agricultural bearings, featuring our
patented sealing technology will be on display. Our bearings have an unmatched
anti-contamination capability which
defies abrasive dust, fertilizer and water to last longer than competing
products. Check it out for yourself as PEER performs against our competition in
a side-by-side mud slurry test.
Additionally, PEER offers bearings
interchangeable to common industry sizes as well as customizable solutions for
extreme application needs.
To learn more about the products we’ll have on
display, feel free to contact us
for more information. We’d also love to meet you at the show!
2017 was a year filled with activity and growth at PEER
Bearing. We launched new products and services, attended major industry events,
and took part in community-centered initiatives. It’s hard to identify our top
highlight from the year, so instead, here’s a round-up of some of our
New Releases at PEER
deck spindle assemblies are vital components in landscaping equipment. We
wanted to find a way to increase the life of these spindles for long-lasting
performance. Since contaminants and debris are a common problem, we applied
TURFXTREME seal technology and specialized shaft and housing components to
block this contamination. We also adjusted the materials used to provide
greater strength to the housings.
To keep up with heightening demand for conveying equipment,
PEER released new features in
Bearing products. We’ve included premium seals to extend the life of
bearings, customized seal options for different applications, industry standard
sizes for interchangeability, and more. Our mission
was to provide a superior bearing product to reduce conveyor downtime, thereby
improving productivity in industrial facilities.
Sometimes, companies require a custom bearing solution and with
a limited production run. It can be difficult to find a supplier willing to
work on this type of project, so PEER Bearing introduced our FLEXWORKS
Center to fill this need. We are able to modify in-stock products to match
our customers’ requirements, providing speed and flexibility in production.
This past November, PEER Bearing attended AGRITECHNICA,
joining more than 2,800 exhibitors and 450,000 visitors in Hanover, Germany.
The event brought together buyers and suppliers, and hosted an array of
workshops and forums to discuss the latest technology trends in agriculture.
In August, we attended the largest outdoor farm event in the
United States, Farm
Progress. This event featured lessons on mass grain harvesting with new
equipment, and autonomous tractors to increase productivity despite the current
skills gap in agriculture.
Expo Pack Guadalajara
Earlier this summer, we traveled to South America for Expo
Pack Guadalajara in June. It brought together material handling companies
and professionals to discuss the latest products and trends. As an exhibitor at
the show, we explained the benefits of our ball and roller bearing systems in
the material handling sector.
Way back in February PEER Bearing attended the 50th
installment of the World
Ag Expo. We exhibited our AGXTREME range of products, with a particular
focus on TILLXTREME and SEEDXTREME. These lines are designed for demanding jobs
with continuous operation. In the farm sector, where the skills gap has led to
labor shortage, it’s important for equipment to keep up the pace and minimize
Customer Service Week 2017
To celebrate Customer
Service Week in 2017, we planned a week-long event that kicked off our
annual Giving Campaign. There were a number of activities that fundraised for
the General Funds of Community Health Charities and United Way. We also hosted
a Disaster Relief Lunch to benefit the United Way Hurricane Relief Fund and the
Mexican Red Cross. For our employees, the event provided many teambuilding
opportunities while allowing us all to give back to our communities.
We’re grateful for the many opportunities that presented
themselves this past year, and look forward to seeing what 2018 has in store.
We already have some exciting announcements in the works, so check back
throughout the year to see what we’re up to.
