LiteForm Makes Its Mark on 2017 Trade Shows
LiteForm Technologies, a South Sioux City, Nebraska-based manufacturer of insulated concrete forms (ICF), is asserting its status as an industry leader at trade shows across the country — from Miami to Las Vegas.
LiteForm started off the year exhibiting at the World of Concrete show in Las Vegas, which the long-running company has been attending for over 30 years. This trade show is the largest annual event dedicated to concrete and masonry professionals, and provides a chance for the leading company to stack their industry expertise and quality products against others in their field.
This show is also where LiteForm received the 2017 Most Innovative Product Award in the Concrete Construction category, a competitive award facilitated through Concrete Construction magazine and voted on by industry experts.
In early March, LiteForm exhibited at the massive CONEXPO-CON/AGG event in Las Vegas, which showcases technology, equipment, products and services across the construction industry and takes place every three years. There they were able to make new connections, and help introduce members of the construction industry to the benefits of building with insulated concrete forms — specifically, how LiteForm’s products are able to create strong structures that save builders time and money.
Most recently, LiteForm sales rep Darryl Bagwell and CEO and president Pat Boeshart made their first appearance at the Tilt-Up Convention and Expo in Miami, Florida. The convention, which took place in late September this year, aims to improve the quality and acceptance of tilt-up construction, a building process in which large concrete walls are cast before building, and then lifted, or “tilted,” into place.
At the Tilt-Up Convention, LiteForm showcased their popular “LiteForm Tilt” product, which allows builders to use foam forms to create pre-cast walls with the insulation already in place, resulting in a more energy-efficient structure. The convention, sponsored by the Tilt-Up Concrete Association based out of Mount Vernon, Iowa, included an outdoor demo, awards gala, seminars, and a tour of the many Miami buildings that utilized tilt-up construction.
LiteForm leaders said their first experience at the show was successful, and they received a lot of positive feedback from attendees about their products.
“Our products stand out in the industry, and we match that quality with our dedication to customer service and satisfaction,” said Boeshart. “We enjoy attending trade shows like the Tilt-Up Convention, because they give us a chance to talk to attendees one-on-one about what sets LiteForm apart, and share the industry expertise we’ve gained through 31 years in business.”
LiteForm will continue exhibiting across the country next year, with appearances at January’s International Builders’ Show in Orlando, and World of Concrete show in Las Vegas already planned. The company is returning to the International Builders’ Show, sponsored by the National Association of Home Builders, for the first time in several years, and they hope to engage with some of the estimated 70,000 attendees about the benefits of homes built with insulated concrete forms.
