Linder Industrial Machinery recently hosted its first annual Oktoberfest at the Lakeland, Fla., location. According to John Coughlin, Linder’s president and COO, the company plans to make this an annual event. They hosted one earlier this year in Columbia, S.C., and plan to do one a year in the Carolinas and in Florida. In 2013 the events will be in Jacksonville, Fla., and Raleigh, S.C. The event carried the Oktoberfest theme through with German food and music.
More than 50 machines were on display from various manufacturers and it gave Linder’s staff the opportunity to show customers a large portion of the equipment they represent.
“This show was all about the equipment.” stated Coughlin, “It gave us the opportunity for face time with our customers to show them our equipment and to enjoy some food and music together.”
