Machine Vision Veteran Joins SVL

What an exciting time to join the team at Smart Vision Lights. I am incredibly fortunate and thankful for the opportunity to continue an 18-year career in the auto ID and machine vision space with a dedicated team that's been doing great things within the greater automation market. The Mission Statement and Core Values of Smart Vision Lights are what attracted me to the company, and specifically to this team. It's inspiring to see an entire organization truly live the core values of the business.
Because you're receiving this newsletter, it's likely that you're either a current customer, distributor, or partner of Smart Vision Lights. If so, thank you for your trust and support. If you're not yet a customer, I invite you to give SVL a try in your next project.
What an amazing time to be in automation. I can't think of a time over the last 20 years when the desire of manufacturers to invest in technology and automation has been greater than it is now -and it shows absolutely no signs of letting up. What's most interesting to me are the common themes we continue to hear from customers, regardless of region, market, application, or size of business.

Smart Vision Lights continues to invest in the business in an effort to bring better products, services, and support to our customers. The week of October 1, 2018, had us breaking ground on a state-of-the-art, 36,000 square foot manufacturing facility just a few miles from our office in Muskegon, Michigan. And it doesn't stop there - we continue to make significant investments in new product development, product improvement, sales, service, and support.
Finally, please visit us at VISION (Hall 1, Stand 1D52) if you are in Germany the week of November 5. We look forward to seeing you and learning about your applications. In the meantime, please feel free to drop me a line if you need anything.
