thank them for the inspiration and example they provide to the industrial automation community,” said Jim Chrzan, publisher of Automation
World. “Congratulations to them, and thank you to all the end users who lent their voices to this program.”
In October 2011, Red Lion acquired Sixnet, a New York-based manufacturer of industrial Ethernet switch, automation and wireless
solutions. Approximately one year earlier, the company also acquired N-Tron, a manufacturer of rugged industrial networking components,
based in Alabama.
