December 2011 Shop Floor Automations Newsletter

The following is an archived copy of our Shop Floor Automations Newsletter from December of 2011.

We hope 2011 has been a good year for you and that 2012 will be even better. We are planning to launch a few new products next year and are encouraged with news about machine tool sales and continued growth in our market. Please let us know of anything we can help with to wrap up this year or kick off the New Year.

In Memory Of: Shawn Dunne

On October 27th, we lost our dear friend and Co-Founder, Shawn Dunne to cancer.

Shawn spent the last 13 years helping to build a remarkable company

and culture that was focused on providing the best solutions to our customers.

He cherished his relationships with all of his customers and enjoyed

learning about the wide variety of industries we serve. He will be missed by all of us.

It contains valuable information and losing it may disrupt your operation

and cost you in the long run. Keep in mind, we now use USB SIMs and we are able

to replace your old parallel key for a small fee.

Our year end specials are coming to an end soon.
