PRO Helix collection
The PRO Helix collection consists of rugged boots made from lightweight materials combined with anti-fatigue technology to absorb shock and help increase workers’ energy, supporting those who work long hours on their feet. Features include molded, inverted cones that support, collapse, and return in key pressure zones, providing higher energy return and flexible, soft durable leathers. The boots also have mesh lining with Agion microbial treatment for odor control and an active heel lock that secures the heel for optimal fit.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
