Providing executive power
In the days surrounding President Obama's inauguration, Aggreko provided temporary power and heat for the various events and security.
As the United States ushered in a new leader on Jan. 20, Aggreko provided power to the people behind the scenes and helped make the surrounding spectacle possible.
The equipment Aggreko provided for the inaugural events provided:
* Enough electricity to power 350,000 medium-size homes
* Enough heat for 250,000 medium-size homes
* Nearly enough cable (35 miles) to stretch from Washington, D.C., to Baltimore.
The company sourced equipment from their nationwide network of service centers, starting installation 13 days before the actual inauguration. Crews are scheduled to remove the last piece of Aggreko equipment from the scene by Jan. 25.
Aggreko has provided power and temperature control for the last three inaugurations. In addition, the company provided equipment that powered Obama’s election-night shindig in Chicago’s Grant Park.

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.
