AHR Expo Day 1: Capsized

We’re gonna need a bigger booth.

That’s the consensus of the hilmor team after thousands of AHR Expo attendees flooded Booth 559 to check out hilmor’s new hand tools and pick up a free hat. Eventually the supply of cool swag ran out, but that didn’t stop the crowd from forming. People surrounded the demo station to get their hands on the Compact Swage Tool, Orbital Flare and new Tubing Cutters.


Even though hats may have been in short supply, innovation wasn’t. Touch screen apps allowed technicians to locate hilmor suppliers all over the map, including the United States and Canada.


But the biggest story may have been the inclement weather. A winter snowstorm made attendees think twice about leaving early. The snow fell fast. Quick-Engage Flare and Swage fast. And piled up higher than a pastrami sandwich at the Carnegie Deli.

Luckily, the hilmor happy hour gave attendees a reason to stay out of the cold with a few cold ones. Not a bad way to cap off the day.
