Vertech 2018 FedEx Day

24 hours. One project. One company. This year, Vertech held its first FedEx Day. What is FedEx day you ask? It’s an opportunity to deliver in 24 hours, just like FedEx does, except we delivered awesome projects, not packages. Twelve teams across our three offices kicked off their projects at 9am on Thursday morning and presented their projects to the rest of the company beginning at 9am on Friday, and they did not disappoint. From the official VerApp to a completely automated coffee brewing system, to beer, we delivered.

A Walk Down Memory Lane: Staying Sharp in the Ever-Changing Industrial Automation Business

Being the guy with the most grey hair (what little is left) in the office, I occasionally look back in amazement at how far our industry has progressed.
