Networking: Black Bros. gearing up for “one of the best opportunities”

“Expand your network. Grow your business. Build your knowledge.”

This is the slogan for the Woodworking Industry Conference (WIC) to be held April 25-27 at Hotel del Coronado in San Diego, CA. Black Bros. will be represented at the annual event by Executive Committee members Matt Carroll and Evan Carroll, as well as Director of Sales Todd Phalen. As a sponsor, Black Bros. will also provide the conference’s recreational “Volleyball and Beach Games” segment.

“The networking at WIC is one of the best opportunities to meet people in the industry,” said Phalen. “All the key players from around the country are there.”

Co-hosted by Woodworking Machinery Industry Association (WMIA) and Wood Machinery Manufacturers of America (WMMA), the event provides a chance for attendees to collaborate and share ideas on relevant business topics in a casual setting. There are also educational opportunities built in with three keynote addresses during the three-day agenda. This year’s topics include “Building Resiliency and Sustainability into the Supply Chain” by Homero Escandón (Biotix, Inc.), “Cash Flow and Exit: Position Your Business for the Future” by Gene Marks (The Marks Group), and “Economic Outlook” by Brian Beaulieu (ITR Economics).

A world-renown manufacturer of laminating and roll coating equipment, Black Bros. has been a leader in the woodworking industry since its inception in 1882 and is a longstanding member of WMMA. To view a complete schedule of events and register for WIC 2023, visit

What is Lorem Ipsum?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
