First DAC Process Control Workshop - A High Water Mark

Call it "soft-sell", call it "test marketing", call it an "introductory offer", call it what you will, but attendees left, pleased with our first venture into training in process control. With the help of Dan Andrews of Technology Transfer Services, our on-call instrumentation and process control trainers and Bob Howarth, our process control course developer, we hosted a introductory, 3-day course in hands-on instrumentation and process control. Attendees included recent customers, potential customers, representatives and some folks just plain interested in learning more about the topic. Using the local Holiday Inn as a venue, visitors came from as far away as Mississippi and Idaho. Our complete line of process control-related equipment was on hand and used in all the training sessions. After a day of introduction, a review our cirruculum everyone to part in hands-on exercises relating to process measurement and control. Call us at 800-662-5877 or e-mail us if you have an interest in attending something similar. Please visit our Process Control Product Area to learn more about this popular and proven line of products. Interested in customized hands-on process control training?

A recent move to a new facility in Streamwood, IL, near Chicago, gives them the room they need for further growth and better access to Chicago area airports. A recent change in ownership will also stimulate new product development and deeper ties to DAC. Now independently owned by former general manager Marvin Ness, and shedding the corporate umbrella of The Barnes Group, expect a new and exciting phase of product line improvement and growth.
