Celebrating Two Local Business Award Winners

Giving a quick shoutout to two local companies for recent awards!

First, Chris Jensen, owner of C3 Designs, has won another major award for his work. Chris recently won a first-place CASE honor from the Jewelers of America for “a pair of sterling silver and 14-karat yellow gold earrings with rough selenite crystal and rough black tourmaline crystal, accented with bezel set rainbow topaz cabochon, topaz, London Blue Topaz and diamonds.” One judge called the design “stunning.”

More details in the press release, and you can celebrate with him at a party at the store from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 30. Details here.

And the Emerson Foundry (former Appleton Electric) has been recognized with the 2019 Plant Engineering Award by the American Foundry Society for its commitment to continuous improvement at its South Milwaukee Foundry. From the press release:

The foundry manufactures electrical fittings, enclosures and other cast products that enable safe, reliable power connections for customers in oil and gas, power, chemical, and construction industries, among others.

The honor recognizes Emerson’s innovation and leadership in driving improved workflow by updating the plant’s processes and equipment to the very latest industry standards, from melting operations to the coreroom. The award was presented to Emerson at the CastExpo tradeshow in Atlanta.

The AFS Plant Engineering Award recognizes plants’ engineering achievements in planning, installation, operation and maintenance and automation of foundry equipment. The award’s emphasis is on application and implementation of new and innovative equipment, and its purpose is to advance technical expertise and professionalism of foundry engineering.

The AFS is a Schaumburg, Illinois-based trade association representing more than 800 foundries in the $33 billion metal casting industry.

    AFS is American Field Service. It does exchange programs with high school students. Started by ambulance drivers in world war 1.

    Maybe they could engineer a way to stop my house from shaking. I live 6 blocks away and mine isn’t the only one.
