Wheatland Tube’s 2015 NECA Recap

on October 8, 2015

There’s no better way to meet and network with your peers, and check out thousands of product and service solutions than at the National Electrical Contractor’s Association’s number one show for the electrical industry. Wheatland Tube was one of the many exhibitors that displayed products at NECA from October 3 – 6 in San Francisco, California. Judging by this year’s turnout, we understand why San Francisco has been named “Everybody’s Favorite City.” There is strength in numbers and it was great to see a steady stream of attendees during the NECA show. We also enjoyed talking to both current and potential customers.
