This week Dave Freed, Owner of The Business Center of Marshfield attended PRINT 18, an event held by The Association for Print Technologies. 

Events like this help keep Marshfield Business Center connected to all of the greatest printing technology globally known. Dave and his wife Melissa connected with businesses from around the world. Some larger and some smaller than us, but this event gives us the perspective that we need to THRIVE and compete successfully in our Market. Opportunities to shop for the latest and greatest equipment in one place. Many connections were made and we are excited to continue to move forward. We hope to have an announcement soon of more equipment for our Marshfield, MA shop. Every advance we have in technology is a fantastic opportunity for our customers (neighbors) to bring top of the line presentations to their clients.
