WHEAT RIDGE, CO – Registration is now open for the Professional Electrical Apparatus Reconditioning League’s (PEARL) annual conference, which will take place April 12th through April 15th at the Hyatt Regency Greenville in Greenville, SC. The 21st PEARL Conference & Exhibition brings the electrical reconditioning industry together to network, to participate in workshops and training, and to hear from industry leaders. The conference is open to both PEARL members and non-members.
This year’s conference will focus on the business side of electrical equipment reconditioning, with an opening keynote presented by Dr. Michael Thurston, Research Professor and Director, Center of Excellence in Advanced & Sustainable Manufacturing, the Golisano Institute for Sustainability. Dr. Thurston’s areas of active research include sustainable production, product remanufacturing, smart products and systems, life-cycle engineering, building and manufacturing energy systems, and asset health management. His project work includes collaborations in product and process design with many companies as well as in technology development and deployment with organizations supporting Department of Defense ground, sea, and air systems.
“As reconditioned electrical equipment is being more and more utilized in industry, and with reconditioned equipment now being recognized in the National Electrical Code as well by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association, businesses are going to need up-to-date information on the latest industry developments and how these developments can impact future growth,” said Howard Herndon, president of PEARL. “As industry leaders, it’s important that PEARL provide both its members and the industry as a whole with the latest strategies to ensure they can offer solutions that are sustainable and viable.”
The PEARL Conference & Exhibition will also provide a range of conference workshops from learning how to find and retain the right employees for your business to financial planning that drives growing companies. Additional ‘hands-on’ sessions will be available focused on the technical principals of electricity, insulation theory as well as inspection and maintenance for circuit breakers and other types of electrical equipment.
