(VID-BRX-0022) - An insider's look at why BRX PLCs were designed and manufactured in the US. Why HOST Engineering and their President Bob Oglesby decided to manufacture products in the US at Vintech - a HOST Engineering partner. HOST Engineering - an exclusive PLC supplier to AutomationDirect.
[Music] The first thing is, is that we need to build. The best possible products, to be sold at the best possible value. That follows the corporate values of AutomationDirect. So, do you just naturally rule things out because of that? No, you want to keep everything on the table. But we have always had a value as host engineering, in particular. That people are inportant, you hear alot of companies say the certain clique. But we try to live by them, it's part of our core culture. So, as we got into the manufacturing of BRICKS and do we build this up? Do we make it bigger, did we make it right? Beyond profit, its the right thing to do for the people. It's the right thing do, as part of your corporate culture. It represents your values. So then it becomes, how to do go and design the product in such a way that you can build it here. And you can do it at value and do it efficiently and cost efficiently. That's how we got there. It can be done, i'm not going to lie and say its easy. But, their was alot of things we did to be cognizent of cost, while still trying to deliver the quaily of performance people expect. But it's worth it. [Music]
