PartnerNetwork Conference 2018
On March 12 - 15, 2018, ACE’s Dave Erby and Gary Hida attended Rockwell Automation’s PartnerNetwork™ Conference at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, FL. The annual event is designed with all Rockwell Automation business partners in mind. Attendees included Strategic Alliance Partners, Encompass™ Product Partners, distributors, and Solution Partners, in addition to Rockwell Automation senior managers.
As a Solution Partner, ACE was invited to collaborate with industry peers, participate in open discussions with product managers and company leaders, and attend over 40 sessions focusing on business strategies, industry insights, and go-to-market plans. It was a great opportunity to reconnect with the 850+ business leaders throughout the PartnerNetwork and to learn more about how we can jointly grow our businesses. See you next year!
Pi(e) Day 2018
On March 14, 2018, ACE’s Delaware Valley office celebrated Pi Day with a pie party. Sweet, savory, homemade, and store-bought pies were all welcome. Flavors included pear crumb, assorted Tastykakes, cream cheese apple, coconut cream, chocolate pecan, Reese’s crème, and Niehaus pecan with whipped cream. There was even homemade apple pie ice cream, ensuring everyone found something to enjoy. Our thanks go out to all those who helped make this year’s Pi Day so sweet!
2018 Engineers Week
During the week of February 18, 2018, ACE celebrated Engineers Week. Started in 1951, the program is designed to celebrate the engineering profession and the positive contributions engineers make to society.
To let our own engineers know how much they are appreciated, each was gifted a custom ACE fidget spinner and candy bar. Several offices also hosted luncheons for their engineers as an additional way of acknowledging their contributions.
In addition, ACE used Engineers Week as an opportunity to engage students and inspire career exploration. The week before Engineers Week we attended a career fair specifically focused on the fields of engineering and technology. Then during Engineers Week we hosted a group of University of Delaware students for an employer site visit. During their time with us, students got to learn what a career in control / automation engineering is all about. Highlights from the day included an industry overview, panel discussion, tour of our facility, and the chance to network with ACE engineers.
Thanks to everyone who made this week such a success. We can’t wait until next year!
