These retrofit kits include unique construction features with Advanced Retrofit Technology, one-piece tool-less reflectors with “squeeze and fit” mounting capability, and Ready-Set captive and secure self-tapping screws. Additional contractor-friendly features include prewired ballast and assembly, no parts bag, and installation in less than 10 min.
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.
