FABTECH to expand to India in 2014
Goal is to "take U.S. technology exhibitors right to the Indian market."
The first FABTECH India exposition will be co-located with India’s premier welding exposition, the Indian Institute of Welding’s Weld India, from April 10 to 12, 2014, in New Delhi.
“More and more buyers from India have been coming all the way to FABTECH to see U.S. welding and manufacturing technologies,” said Ray Shook, executive director of the American Welding Society, one of FABTECH’s cosponsors. “Now we can take U.S. technology exhibitors right to the Indian market in an easy, affordable way.”
Metal forming, fabricating and welding companies who want to penetrate the Indian economy can benefit from this new opportunity to meet prospective partners and gain a foothold in the world’s most populous country.
In recent years, the FABTECH exposition brand has expanded from annual shows in the United States to include the annual FABTECH Mexico and the biennial FABTECH Canada. FABTECH India will be presented every three years, and the first is timed to coincide with the 2014 International Congress of the International Institute of Welding. FABTECH India and Weld India will be held at New Delhi’s Pragati Maidan exhibition complex, where India’s largest trade shows are hosted.
About 250 international exhibitors and 10,000 attendees are projected to exchange challenges and solutions at the exposition. Attendees will represent India’s fast-growing industries, such as energy, refining, infrastructure, and manufacturing.
FABTECH is co-sponsored by five industry-leading associations: the American Welding Society (AWS), the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International (FMA), the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), thePrecision Metalforming Association (PMA), and the Chemical Coaters Association International (CCAI).

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
