Hello! It's the time of year to reflect on what we're thankful for, and here at Numatic Engineering, were thankful to have many great and enduring relationships with our human friends, our customers who share our passion for technology and the benefits it can bring to businesses.

And, of course, we're thankful for our non-human friends, "robots".

We sell robots, and you'll have to pardon our enthusiasm for robots and the numerous ways they help enhance manufacturing operations. Robots improve processes, reduce down time, and help eliminate errors and injury due to repetitive motion. All this allows our clients to ultimately be more competitive, profitable and provide for safer working environments.

If you appreciate technology as much as we do, we hope you'll mark your calendar for Tuesday Dec. 14 and join us for our "Industrial Ethernet and Network Security Seminar", co-hosted by Phoenix Contact. The event will feature a special appearance by the Phoenix Contact FL Camino, a fully restored and customized 1970 El Camino that displays a wide range of wireless industrial components and solutions — this is the ultimate tailgating machine with it's 48,000 BTU BBQ, Direct TV and Wii gaming system displayed on a 32" HD TV.

As the holidays approach, we extend our thanks to all of you, our valued clients who make it possible for us to do what we love every day.

And, of course, we extend our thanks to our non-human friends:
