Marshfield, WI-based ESE Inc. has achieved the Control

System Integrators Association (CSIA) certified member status. It passed an

independent third-party audit on criteria that encompass business and project

management processes, procedures and performance. These criteria include:

  • General management
  • Human resources management
  • Financial management
  • Marketing, business development and sales

    management

  • Project management system development lifecycle supporting

    activities 

  • Quality assurance management.
    •  

      Compared by independent auditors to the ISO 9001 and ISO

      9004 programs for its standardization and reliability, the CSIA is considered

      the industry standard for system integration project confidence. According to

      Bob Lowe, CSIA executive director, "CSIA is committed to the business

      development of control system integration companies and their implementation of

      best practices in order to provide a healthy, low-risk channel for the

      application of technology to their industrial clients." ESE will retain the

      CSIA certified designation for three years, at which time they will be

      reevaluated based on the same rigorous criteria.

      Additionally, ESE proved a solid understanding of the food

      and beverage industry and the specialized requirements necessary to comply with

      the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S. Department of Agriculture

      (USDA), the Bioterrorism Act and current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs).

      ESE has been designing and commissioning plant

      automation systems for food and beverage applications since 1981. The company

      integrates analytical instruments with control systems and software to improve

      plant utilization, yields product quality and delivery.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
