I haven’t had the opportunity to talk with John Dyck of CESMII or with Phoenix Contact executives for more than a couple of years. But I’m happy to see Phoenix Contact joining the organization. Work must be done in the US to add vigor to the manufacturing and industrial sector.

Phoenix Contact Development and Manufacturing Inc., has joined CESMII –The Smart Manufacturing Institute. As a platinum member, Phoenix Contact will work with CESMII and other member companies to radically accelerate the development and adoption of advanced sensors, controls, platforms, and models – all to enable Smart Manufacturing (SM) to become the driving sustainable engine that delivers real-time business improvements in U.S. manufacturing.

Louis Grice, Phoenix Contact vice president of digitalization and government affairs, was named to the CESMII board.

Grice stated, “We’ve embraced Smart Manufacturing on our own production floor. By working with CESMII, we’ll contribute to a mission-driven association dedicated to driving performance, increasing quality, improving reliability, and saving energy for sustainable and competitive U.S. manufacturing.” 

“The democratization of Smart Manufacturing is a national imperative as we work together to create a more competitive manufacturing environment. This journey requires a productive and sustainable ecosystem, and it’s an honor to have Phoenix Contact partnering with us on this important endeavor,” said John Dyck, CESMII Chief Executive Officer.
