DISTek Attends ESOP Conference

ESOP Culture

Similar to most events in 2020, the ESOP Association’s Annual Midwest Conference went virtual this year.

Creating a Cross Platform Application

When creating an application, one of the most difficult aspects is choosing a language/framework that will meet all requirements.

DISTek is well into its 2nd year of being a 100% employee owned company through our Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP).

Attending the SAE WCX Conference – COVID-19 Edition

I have been a member of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) for a number of years and have attended several different SAE events over the last decade. In 2018, I started attending the SAE WCX, a show focused on passenger car technologies, formerly known as the World Congress. Insights into the technologies of today and tomorrow in passenger cars are definitely informative as DISTek seeks to be ready for new technology applications in the Off-Highway industry where we focus. Of course, not everything is directly applicable, but much of it is to varying degrees.

“Friendship” with Technology Leads to Success

The saying “technology is our friend” gained a completely new meaning when the COVID-19 pandemic hit in March 2020. While many companies struggled to switch from operating out of traditional offices to working from home, DISTek’s “friendship” with technology allowed us to smoothly and quickly make the transition while consistently meeting and exceeding the needs of both our employees and customers.
