The Show was a Success!

Over the course of the three-day show, 146 companies and prospective clients visited our booth to discuss their overcurrent (OC) circuit protection requirements. We were able to support the needs of automotive, industrial, and commercial electronics companies with our diverse product lineup.

SOC is a fuse company devoted to high-quality fuses ever since its founding. Therefore, our booth represented the full scope of our products, from glass cartridge fuses, which marked our start in 1958, to the DC450VPT3050 350A fuse designed for the burgeoning electric vehicle market, as well as the MCF3, a micro fuse on the opposite end of the OC circuit protection spectrum with a current rating of 28 mA. These products were displayed on our custom backwall together with samples for booth visitors to evaluate.

SOC is international, as are the individuals who staffed our booth. Colleagues from SOC Headquarters in Tokyo and SOC Europe in the Netherlands were on hand to lend help to booth visitors in their native tongue whenever possible. German, Japanese, and English were spoken throughout the exhibition. Booth visitors came from more than 10 countries spread over three continents. Within North America alone, visitors came from 25 states and provinces. Even after the exhibition, correspondences with visitors are ongoing in not only SOC America but also Headquarters and our offices in Europe and Asia.

SOC America chose The Battery Show to showcase its portfolio of high-performance automotive fuses, among other products, in Motor City, the hometown of the American automobile. Thanks to its success, we were able to meet important current and prospective customers. Building on this momentum, we will expand our presence in global markets to provide high-quality and highly reliable fuses.
