Emergency exit signage
The EDGR exit by Lithonia.
Rounding out its line of edge-lit emergency exit signs, Lithonia Lighting has introduced the EDGR exit. Available with one or two faces, this exit sign is ideal for recessed applications where a clean, edge-lit appearance is desired, but cost is driving the decision. Universal directional chevrons are field installable. All emergency models feature a standard Ni-Cad battery. Options include self-diagnostics and single or dual ac input. New York City- and Chicago-specific options are available.
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.
