Global Automation and Manufacturing Summit Webinar series starts July 14
Keynote speakers at 2014 Summit will discuss manufacturing excellence, preview presentations in September.
The Global Automation and Manufacturing Summit Webinar series, sponsored by Hannover Fairs USA and produced by CFE Media, will preview topics that will be presented at the 2014 Summit on Sept. 10, part of the Industrial Automation North American pavilion at the 2014 IMTS Show in Chicago Sept. 8-13.
The two keynote speakers at this year’s event will discuss their presentations and talk about issues related to manufacturing excellence. They include:
Mick Wilz (Sur-Seal)
Monday, July 14, starting at 1p.m. CDT
Expanding your manufacturing facility isn’t usually something that becomes a team project with all of your employees engaged. One Cincinnati manufacturer shows that employee engagement with such a project is like building a new facility; it happens one brick at a time.
Karen Kurek (McGladrey LLP)
Thursday, July 17, starting at 9:30 a.m. CDT
Karen Kurek, principal at McGladrey and head of its manufacturing practice, will discuss their exclusive Manufacturing Monitor Report for the first time since its August release and highlight the trends and challenges for manufacturing in the next two years.

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.
