BELLWOOD, IL — The Chicagoland Sheet Metal Contractors Association (CSMCA) held its 25th Annual Trade Show in late March. A crowd of more than 3,000 viewed the latest products and technology available.

CSMCA Trade Show committee chairman Bill Niehoff Jr. of Fresh Aire Test & Balance said the educational aspect of the trade show is central to CSMCA’s mission. “Information and education are critical to the aspects of our association,” he said. “Keeping our members trained is what helps them maintain an edge in an industry that’s increasingly competitive.”

This year’s show featured a seminar on duct construction standards. Attendees were shown how to use SMACNA’s construction standards in the design of ductwork.
