This week’s podcasts are from the 2019 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Patrick and Rob talk with a couple of manufacturers attending the International Builders’ Show about how keeping in touch with folks in the trades plays a major role in producing gear and construction materials that perform well and are in demand. The guys also compare notes on the builder-show experience, and touch on the current state of skilled trades in our country.
