The Vortec Personal Air Conditioning (PAC) vest has been redesigned to include an integrated belt with a heat-resistant Nexus belt buckle, which holds the tubing for delivering hot or cold air to the wearer. This lets the worker receive even more cool or warm air to combat extreme ambient conditions. The adjustable waist belt on the Vortec PAC provides a quick connection to cool or warm air with the Dual Action PAC switching quickly from hot to cold. The vests are available in three sizes and can be worn under other protective clothing and can be adjusted even with gloved hands.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
