Etched Owner Josh Shelton Appears at Midwest Manufacturers Trade Show and Happy Hour Podcast

Josh Shelton, the owner of Etched The Nameplate Company, appeared on episode 180 of the Manufacturing Happy Hour podcast earlier this year to talk about the history of Etched and how to remain competitive in today’s market.

Chris Luecke, host of Manufacturing Happy Hour, sits down with innovators of the manufacturing industry to talk about the people, processes, and enabling technologies that can help businesses become more productive and profitable. Josh featured on a live podcast episode as part of the Midwest Manufacturers Trade Show and Conference, which took place February 20-21, 2024, in Branson, Missouri. He and Chris had a wide-ranging conversation focusing on what it’s like to manufacture in the Midwest.

"We definitely thought that there were things out there in the market that we could do better than other folks, and take care of customers in ways that other people weren’t"

“It was a privilege to feature on the podcast along with other Midwest manufacturing innovators,” Josh said. You can hear the full episode, which also contains interviews with Pavel Bosovik of 27North and Kevin Thompson of Cambridge Air Solutions, here.
