Demco Automation Named to Inc. Magazine’s
33rd Annual Inc. 5000 List of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies in the U.S.

 Quakertown, PA, September 3, 2014 – Demco Automation announced today that it has been recognized on the 33rd annual “Inc. 5000” ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. The Pennsylvania-based company is ranked NO. 4985 with a three-year sales growth of 43% and is one of only eight companies from the manufacturing sector on this list from Pennsylvania.

PRNewswire Press Release

According to Inc., this is the most competitive group in the list’s history with the aggregate revenue is $211 billion. “What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”

airlogoblackrgb1For the third year, Demco Automation was a program sponsor for the Bucks County Chapter of the Board of Associates of Fox Chase Cancer Center’s 2014 fund raising event held at the James A. Michener Art Museum.  The event is used to raise funds for cancer research and all money raised at the event benefited research at Fox Chase Cancer Center with a  goal to raise $200,000.  Since 1983, the Bucks County Chapter has raised $3.6 million for the Fox Chase Cancer Center.

This year’s “Special Pledge” benefited precision medicine research. At Fox Chase, cancer specialists are able to use an individual’s unique DNA sequences to determine that person’s risk of cancer. They also use DNA sequencing to identify targeted treatments that can provide the best outcome for an individual patient. You can read more about precision medicine research here.

Medical Product Outsourcing Magazine, “Putting the Pieces Together –  Assembly and automation operations must be nimble to meet ever-changing client demands and product needs” – by Mark Crawford

Modular Automation

Many contract manufacturers lean toward semi-automated assembly processes that are nimble and scalable so they can work with rapidly changing OEM demands and get products to market faster. Smaller product lots and shorter product life cycles also keep full automation at low priority because of the time involved to validate the larger-scale process, as well as the high cost in machinery and time. “Using modular automated assembly equipment is a good way to reduce the overall cost of production,” said Rudolf Pavlik, product development manager for ASI, a Millersburg, Pa.-based contract manufacturer of OEM healthcare products and single-use systems.

Demco Automation's Wedge system, for example... read more

“Demco Automation’s Wedge system, for example, is highly customizable and a relatively inexpensive way to automate lower-volume projects.” This system consists of either tooled or untooled stations with distributed controls that plug into a base chassis (bench-top, rotary dial, inline and walking beam models) for immediate start up. Each station is a tooling plate that is equipped with an on-board controls box that includes a controller, wiring, valve manifold and input blocks; they also come with pinning, tapping and key holes that align with docking stations on the chassis platform. Stations can operate alone as a tabletop station or plug into the base chassis to operate in a manual, semi-automatic or automatic mode. According to Pavlik, Demco’s proprietary Windows-based PLC programming (programmable logic controller; primarily used to control machinery) is easy to operate; stations are programmed by simply checking boxes on a PC screen for a sequence of designated inputs and outputs. – Read the entire article at: Putting the Pieces Together

To support the continuous expansion and growth of the company, Demco Automation is in the process of implementing a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System to optimize and streamline current business operations. In cooperation with Enterprise Systems Partners, Inc. (ESPI), and matching funds from Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Northeastern Pennsylvania, system selection has been completed and implementation is underway.

As a leading supplier of reliable, cost-effective and low-risk automated manufacturing systems for technology-based industry sectors, the new ERP System provides additional control of business processes in the areas of purchasing/inventory management, Method of Manufacturing/Bill of Material & Routings, finance, and other aspects of Demco Automation’s corporate operations. Phase I implementation of the new System is expected to be complete by fall of this year.
