Standard Electric Supply Co., Milwaukee, celebrated its 90th year in business with an automation trade show oriented to helping companies during these challenging times. The company hosted its Automation Express on April 2 in Miller Park in Milwaukee.

The Automation Express was a free trade show that featured 28 of the world's leading manufacturers in automation technology, including Siemens, ABB and Square D. The trade show also hosted 16 seminars on the latest industry trends.

“Over 300 customers from throughout Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana attended,” said Larry Stern, president. To ensure that all who want to attend could be there, Standard Electric provided bus transportation from six cities.

Even during a down economy companies need to have complete and current knowledge of the latest automation products and learn about future trends. Attending Standard Electric's Automation Express was a great way for companies to obtain the knowledge that will help them be more productive and reduce costs, the company said.

Following the trade show, Standard Electric Supply hosted a special reception celebrating its 90 years and its third generation as a family business.
