SSP Hosts Silicone Expo Video, Reaches 600 LinkedIn Followers



SSP Hosts Silicone Expo Video, Reaches 600 LinkedIn Followers

Specialty Silicone Products is hosting the second episode of “Silicone Sessions”, a series of videos produced by the organizers of Silicone Expo, the world’s first free-to-attend commercial tradeshow for the silicone industry. Dominic Testo, SSP’s Business Development Manager and a member of the Silicone Expo Advisory Board, explains why this upcoming event is generating so much excitement and how silicone has many diverse uses in everyday life. SSP is also celebrating a major social media milestone as the Ballston Spa, New York company recently gained its 600th LinkedIn follower.   

SSP’s New Video and the Value of Silicone Expo

Silicone Expo is still months away, but now is the time to make plans to join the rest of the silicone industry from June 21 to 23, 2022 at the TCF Center in Detroit. As Dominic Testo explains in his video interview with Nathan Reuby, the CEO of Select Global Events (SGE), the tradeshow organizer, “silicone is a super-important product at a super-important time”. For major silicone suppliers, converters and fabricators, and OEMs and manufacturers, it’s been a long time since COVID-19 began and in-person tradeshows stopped. All three groups stand to gain when they book a booth at Silicone Expo.

As SSP’s new video explains, major silicone suppliers enjoy brand awareness but haven’t been able to travel much (if at all) since the pandemic started. These companies could make trips to many customer sites, or they can attend Silicone Expo and hold multiple meetings all under one roof. Converters and fabricators can’t match the major players in terms of brand awareness, but there will be plenty of opportunities for them to make connections and receive referrals. For the OEM and manufacturers who attend, recent supply chain disruptions show why it’s important to find and meet alternative suppliers.  

Moving Quickly and Reaching Milestones

COVID-19 has slowed development on many projects, but the entire silicone supply chain is eager to move quickly again. To make that happen, OEMs and manufacturers will need resources for rapid prototyping. Larger suppliers want to produce higher volumes for major projects, but there are also plenty of opportunities that require smaller runs. SSP can provide lower minimum order quantities (MOQs) with shorter lead times for EMI/RFI shielding, military and aerospace silicones, USP Class VI medical silicones, bonded O-Rings, molded gaskets, and other silicone products and materials.  

As videos like the second episode of “Silicone Sessions” build even greater awareness of SSP’s capabilities, Specialty Silicone Products is marking another digital milestone. Recently, SSP’s company page on LinkedIn reached the 600-follower mark. In addition to video content, SSP regularly shares technical articles and provides access to white papers via its “Silicones That Work” blog.
