FPE Automation's Eric Orf Wins Piab Kalyteros Award for 2018

Congratulations to FPE Automation's Eric Orf! 

Piab Kalyteros Award Winner
Midwest Region

Piab's Kalyteros award (Greek, for "better") is given annually to one outstanding sales engineer per region. It was announced Wednesday that the winner for 2018 is FPE Automation's Eric Orf.

Those who know Eric recognize that he does indeed strive every day to architect better solutions for his customers. Eric is naturally energetic and ingenuitive. Tall, and thin, people definitely look up when Eric enters a room. He's creative and dedicated - Eric would give MacGyver a run for his money! He's not a quitter. The Kalyteros award is a great fit for Eric, who isn't the type to settle for "good enough". 

We'd like to thank Piab for the honor! This marks the second year in a row that a member of the FPE Automation team is the recipient of this award.

On March 27, it was also announced that FPE Automation is the Piab Diamond Award winner for 2018. It's Piab's most prestigious award. Achievements like these are built one solution at a time. We team up with Piab to work side by side with our customers.  Looking back, we're thrilled with the year we had working with all of you, and look forward to more adventures to come.

FPE Automation Wins Piab Diamond Award

FPE Automation is the proud recipient of the Piab Diamond Award for 2018

For the second consecutive year, FPE Automation is thrilled to have received this honor. It was announced yesterday.

This award is given for sales growth/achievement. In today's competitive market, back to back awards like these are exceedingly hard to attain. 

What that means:

To retain business, and to be awarded with repeat business, both FPE Automation and Piab have to focus on top quality and service. If they fall short, customers simply won't come back. Of course, we can't say we blame them!

Having said that, doing the very same business as last year will not produce growth. To win an award like this one, the dedicated teams at FPE Automation and Piab must work alongside our valued clients on new applications. We develop. We test. We prove concepts, and then make them a reality. None of this would take place if the proposed solutions were not the most cost-effective and reliable ones. Our customers have a lot at stake. Each time, they will choose the best option for their specific needs. To win an award like this one, we have to be consistently the best. That's what makes this notable. 

On behalf of FPE Automation, I'd like to express appreciation to Piab , and also to the FPE Automation team for work well done!

What to see at Automate 2019

Automate 2019 Show Guide


Custom, scrollable list hand-picked by us for you, plus downloadable PDF, floorplan map and more.

This year’s Automate show is looking like it will be the best in recent memory. Industry advancements and new technology naturally lend themselves to a great show. Several manufacturers on this list have new products on display. Still, taking in a large trade show on foot can be overwhelming and exhausting. We put together this list so that it won’t be for you. The folks at Automate welcome all sorts of exhibitors; Universities for job recruitment, Chambers of Commerce, and more. While those booths are very important, if you’re visiting to see the latest products in your industry, they might not be quite as relevant to you. We hope this customized list makes it easier for you to navigate the show, go directly to everything you want to see and miss absolutely nothing. All with the least amount of effort. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, and enjoy! We will see you there!
