Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Academy students from Wayne Technical and Career Center (WTCC) visited Pearl Technologies on January 20, 2017. From 9:30 am until 11:10, the 23 students were introduced to the world of manufacturing and engineering. The students were split into teams and rotated between three stations – shop floor, R&D, and corporate.

At the end of another successful year, Pearl Technologies added on one more goal before the start of 2017–to give back to the community. In partnership with the Finger Lakes Chapter of the American Red Cross, Pearl participated in their 2016 Holiday Heroes Toy Drive.
Pearl would like to thank everyone who attended our Technical Seminars on Sunday, October 23rd in Dusseldorf, Germany. Those who attended listened to in-depth presentations about one of three topics – Spreader Bar Applications, Converting Equipment Solutions, and the Advantages of Pre-nip Chillers.
We were not able to secure a booth this year, however, we will have staff present and walking the show from October 20th to 25th. Additionally, we have secured a conference room at the Tulip Inn Düsseldorf Arena, Arena-Str. 3, 40474 Düsseldorf from 8 AM to 6 PM. New Pearl products, as well as modifications/updates to existing ones, will be on display.

Pearl sent Vice President of Operations, Linda Gillette, and Jennifer Gillette, Global Marketing Coordinator at Pearl and a 2013 alum of the college, to the event for a company presentation day.
