Industry Roundtable: Cybersecurity

Last year, Delaware Business Times hosted a series of industry roundtable discussions. ACE’s Dirk Sweigart provided a voice for one such discussion focused on the topic of cybersecurity. With his background in the manufacturing and process industries, Dirk provided a unique perspective on the impact that cyber threats can have on a business and steps companies can take to protect themselves. According to Dirk, “We need education, vigilance, and we need to put systems in place.” Click here to read a transcript of the discussion in its entirety or contact Dirk at 302.738.8800 to discuss the topic further.

ACE Named One of Control Engineering’s 2018 System Integrator Giants

On December 12, 2017, Control Engineering, a CFE Media publication, announced the 2018 System Integrator (SI) Giants. The list includes the top 100 system integrators ranked according to total system integration revenue. ACE has been recognized as an SI Giant every year since 2012, the list’s inception. This year, our sixth time participating in the program, ACE was ranked 29th.

The list was compiled based on surveys sent to the engineering firms in Control Engineering's Global System Integrator Database. In addition to system integration revenue, this year’s survey also took a closer look at current system integration trends, issues, and topics such as the economy, recruiting and training of young engineers, and the impact those issues have on the ability to find new clients.
