When I came up with this catchy little name for our new blog I hadn’t cracked the dictionary to actually check the meaning!

Pontificate – To speak or behave in a pompous or dogmatic manner.

Of course my staff asked if my picture was next to the definition!Pontificate

Rest assured that is not our intention, however we do plan on bringing you interesting topics and applications for the products we sell and the industries we serve.

“The Pontificator” is part of our new redesigned website that is designed to be mobile device friendly and help our customers find the solutions they need for their applications. I trust you’ll find the website easy to navigate and the content informative but we are always open to suggestions for improvement!

That said, in reality no website exists that can answer all your application questions or provide you all the information you need to solve your complex control or process requirements. That’s why there are companies like ours with trained engineers and application specialists to help you along the way.

To that end goal our objective is to provide you the correct solution in the most time effective manner possible. You’ll notice on every page of our website a button that allows you to instantly talk or live chat with a real person. Don’t hesitate to use it! We want to save you time and allow you to get on with the myriad of other things you need to do!

Our commitment to you is to provide answers in no more than 24 hours. If we don’t have an answer for you in that time frame you will receive an update from us advising you the current status of your inquiry and when you can expect an answer. We want you to trust that you can depend on us to provide you the information you need without having to think about contacting us to remind us we owe you something.

Best regards,

Marty Ponton
