Bonnell Industries hosted its biannual equipment expo on June 7 to 8 at its facility in Dixon, Ill., on 1385 Franklin Grove Road. Bonnell's Expo brought in just under 1,000 people to enjoy the event, and 40 exhibitors attended to display their products. These expos are held to introduce customers to Bonnell's vendors and their new product advancements and the Bonnell Equipment staff was more than willing to help.

Fey's BBQ from Sandwich, Ill., caters every Expo Bonnell Industries has hosted and will continue to do so in the future.

“At Bonnell Equipment Expo, we get to enjoy a great BBQ, but most of all we look forward to bonding and fellowship with our customers and vendors,” said Joe Bonnell, company president.

The next Bonnell Equipment Expo will be held in June of 2019.
