With the 2019 holiday season well underway, it’s easy to get caught up in the holiday madness, searching for the greatest deals, finalizing year-end reporting, last-minute travel arrangements. It’s easy to forget the ones who need a second chance, helping to put food on the table or helping to put gifts under a tree. At MES, we strive to help those in need year-round, especially during the holiday season. We don’t allow for the distractions, meetings, and deadlines to become an excuse for why we cannot take time to support and give back to our local Charites. This year, we carried on our ‘double-down’ tradition in collecting food donations, as well as cash donations for the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. Our employees made several cash and food donations for over four weeks. And as a result, we were pleased to present a generous check and food donations to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. We […]
Third of our lives is spent at work. We continue to try to have a very engaged, open and inviting place to work where associates can continue to get better, take ownership of their work, continue to grow and improve their skills with a good work-life balance. To keep the workforce engage and attach with each other, it’s important that as individuals and as a team, we learn to manage our emotions and help others manage theirs. Ohio team went through an “Emotional Intelligence” training today to make us all better in this regards.

A flange used globally posed a cost and supply problem for Schneider Electric. The challenge presented to MES was to reduce the flange’s production cost while securing its availability. MES was able to meet Schneider’s needs by delivering an end-to-end engineering solution. THE CHALLENGE The Schneider component consisted of a nut and a flange. Both parts were stainless steel, a relatively expensive option that had originally been chosen in order to withstand outdoor applications where potential exposure to moisture, cold or chemical environments could otherwise result in corrosion and component failure. The nut had been brazed to the flange. The use of stainless steel and the added production step of brazing meant increasingly higher production costs for the component, and Schneider was seeking an alternative that would reduce cost without compromising the durability of the finished part. THE SOLUTION MES proposed an engineering solution that would lower the component’s manufacturing […]
