Innovative  already offer technical services for maintenance and repair of manufacturing machines, but we haven't really push-marketed the fact. Co-workers Britt and Jamie have been working on some logos. Here's the latest iteration. Both Britt and Jamie have a hand in the design of our line cards and other printed material.

If you're in the production automation business and you'd like to take a 10-second survey on field service needs, let 'er rip.

Legendary: Let’s Get It Started!

Well, here we go. The boss is out of town on vacation in Colorado, so let's get this thing started. (Note: Texans vacation in Colorado and Colorado people vacation in Texas. Both claim their home states are the best.)

Welcome to Innovative Behind the Scenes, blog of Innovative Automation. Our Dallas-area company services the production automation industry -- you know, conveyor belts, sensors, mechanical arms, cans being filled with spinach, bottles of beer being filled and capped at the rate of 2,000 bottles per minute. Stuff like that, and all of the motors and drives and software that makes everything work.

All the stuff you use everyday, but never thought about where it came from.

This is a cool place to work, but we've kept it a secret. We've opened this blog to help tell that story in hopes that you'll understand that commitment to customer service is a foundation to success.

Never mind that the company president is a registered, honest-to-god firewalking instructor. And never mind that just a week ago I broke a cinder block with my bare hand during work hours. That just makes behind the scenes at Innovative that much more legendary.

Check back. We'll see how much content I can get up here before I have to fess up to boss man that this place exists. By then, I think he'll like it.
