Dateline: Atlanta, Georgia (ATLANTA, Ga.)  | Mon, 19 Apr 2010

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “ATLANTA, Ga. -- The economy may be in a slump, but 13 members of the Georgia Association of Business Brokers (GABB) helped enough business owners buy and sell $30 million worth of businesses to earn membership to the organization's prestigious Million Dollar Club for 2009. Each year the GABB, the state's only professional association dedicated to buying and selling business, recognizes the state's outstanding business brokers.”



A R T I C L E:

The economy may be in a slump, but 13 members of the Georgia Association of Business Brokers (GABB) helped enough business owners buy and sell $30 million worth of businesses to earn membership to the organization's prestigious Million Dollar Club for 2009.

Each year the GABB, the state's only professional association dedicated to buying and selling business, recognizes the state's outstanding business brokers. To earn this distinction, a GABB member must have produced business sales of a million dollars or more. This year's list includes 13 professional business brokers whose hard work resulted in $30 million worth of transaction values.

GABB's Top Producer for 2009 was Matt Slappey, the owner of Murphy Business and Financial Corporation of Decatur.

"I work hard, work smart, and work ethically for my clients to help them achieve their goals of buying or selling the right business," said Mr. Slappey in accepting the honor. "I feel fortunate to have worked with excellent business owners and business buyers in a year when getting a transaction closed was extremely difficult."

Second overall was Jeffery E. Merry of Gainesville, owner and founder of The Business House, Inc., who was the GABB's top seller in 2008. Other top 5 GABB brokers for 2009 are (3) Bina Cline a senior business broker with Coldwell Banker Commercial Metro Brokers; (4) C. Patrick Harkins, CEO of Anchor Business Advisors and (5) Patricia McDonald, president and founder of CBI Business Group.

Loren Marc Schmerler (6), founder and president of Bottom Line Management, Inc., is a member of the Multi-Million Dollar club for 2009.

Other 2009 Million Dollar Club members are (7) James Welch, the senior business broker/intermediary with Coldwell Banker Commercial Metro Brokers; (8) Charles Jay, founder of Jay and Associates of Macon, (9) Steven Josovitz, vice president of The Shumacher Group (10) Eric Gagnon, founder and president of We Sell Restaurants, (11) Peter Antoniades, a senior business analyst with Prime Business Investments, Inc., (12) Nick Modares, president, managing broker and owner of Business Brokers, Inc., and owner of Atlanta Business Advisors; and Matt Wochele (13) of Preferred Business Brokers, Inc.

Charles Jay and Jeffery Merry were honored as the first recipients of the GABB Phoenix Million Dollar Club Award for achieving a million dollars in sales for 10 years.

"Achieving a million dollars in sales is a great achievement in itself in any year, but even more so in today's economy," commented GABB President Art Lennig. "We congratulate our colleagues for successfully completing so many business sales in 2009."

The Georgia Association of Business Brokers, GABB, is a "not-for-profit," statewide membership organization committed to establishing and maintaining an environment and support structure for success and professionalism in the business brokerage industry. GABB actively encourages each member to achieve his or her highest potential by promoting education, integrity, community responsibility, leadership, professionalism and productivity.

Matt Slappey, a native of Decatur/DeKalb County, is the owner of the Decatur branch of Murphy Business and Financial Corporation. Slappey was the top broker in Murphy Business & Financial Corporation of Georgia in 2008 and 2009 for both the number of deals closed and the total dollar volume of transactions. Matt has been one of the top two producers of the GABB each year of his membership. He has helped clients acquire or sell businesses ranging from $150,000 to almost $20 million. Mr. Slappey draws from his experiences in previous business transactions, his Certified Business Intermediary (CBI) designation from the International Business Broker Association (IBBA), degrees in Accounting, Economics and Business and 12 years of experience in management for a Fortune 100 healthcare company. A veteran, Mr. Slappey served as a pilot and military intelligence officer in the U.S. Army. According to Mr. Slappey, "Given the great uncertainty we had in 2009 regarding business valuations, credit and financing, buyers and sellers of small to medium sized companies need to find a broker who will think out of the box to find solutions for them in maximizing value for their company and helping them actually get to a closing. The focus for 2010 is to get businesses sold before the end of the year to take advantage of the current capital gains tax rate before it increases Jan 1, 2011."

Jeffery E. Merry, a past president of the GABB, was the GABB top producer in 2008, 2007, 2006 and 2002, and has been a part of the Million Dollar Club since its inception in 1999.

Swarovski, the leading designer and producer of fashion jewelry, will soon feature its new retail design concept at two locations in Times Square and Penn Plaza in New York City. The Times Square boutique will open in mid May while the Penn Plaza location will open in early June. The 950 square foot Times Square space will be located at 1540 Broadway and its exterior will feature a large LED screen. The 1,500 square foot Penn Plaza boutique will be located at 200 West 34th Street, in a space previously occupied by Tourneau. The Penn Plaza exterior will incorporate two newly refurbished digital clocks, a familiar sight to commuters in the area. Both boutiques will offer Swarovski's full range of fashion jewelry and watches, as well as home accessories and decor objects.

Both spaces will boast Swarovski's new "Crystal Forest" retail design concept, which was created in collaboration with Tokujin Yoshioka, Design Miami Designer of the Year award winner.

"Swarovski's Crystal Forest retail design concept creates an environment that accentuates the beauty and fine craftsmanship of our product offering," said Kevin Coen, Executive Vice President of Swarovski North America Limited's Consumer Goods Business. "Swarovski's new boutiques in Time Squares and Penn Plaza will further strengthen Swarovski's positioning as a luxury fashion brand by creating a consumer experience that embodies Swarovski's brand values of innovation and modernity."

The Crystal Forest design concept made its global debut in Tokyo's prestigious Ginza district in March 2008. In November 2009, Swarovski opened its first Crystal Forest store in the USA on the prestigious Magnificent Mile of Chicago's Michigan Avenue.

The retail design highlights Swarovski's crystal-cutting expertise, unique craftsmanship, creativity and innovation. Key elements of the new retail concept are:

* Stainless steel prism exterior elements that catch light and reflections from outside the store.
* Two eight foot high crystal panels, each made up of 17 crystal strands.
* Textured walls featuring reflective white prisms envelop the space to create the illusion of an organic crystal forest.
* White lacquer and mirror stainless steel finishes.
* A combination of horizontal and vertical showcases featuring LED lighting from various directions.
* Play of light on different materials enhancing the sparkle of the store.
* Floating window boxes that allow for unique, eye-catching displays of Swarovski's crystal accessories.

Swarovski already has six boutiques in New York City located at: The Shops at Columbus Circle, the MetLife Building, Rockefeller Center, Fifth Avenue, Lexington Avenue and Madison Avenue.

About Swarovski:

In 1895, Daniel Swarovski I, a Bohemian inventor and visionary, moved to the village of Wattens, Tyrol in Austria, with his newly-invented machine for cutting and polishing crystal jewelry stones. From this beginning that revolutionized the fashion world, Swarovski has grown to be the world's leading producer of precision-cut crystal, for fashion, jewelry and more recently lighting, architecture and interiors. Today, the company, still based in Wattens, family-owned and run by 4th and 5th generation family members, has a global reach, with some 26.000 employees, a presence in over 120 countries and a turnover in 2008 of 2.52 billion Euros.

Swarovski comprises two major businesses, one producing and selling loose elements to the industry and the other creating design-driven finished products. Swarovski crystal components, known by their product brand names CRYSTALLIZED™ - Swarovski Elements for fashion and STRASS® Swarovski® Crystal for architecture and light, have become an essential ingredient of international design. Since 1965 the company has also catered to the fine jewelry industry with precision-cut genuine and created gemstones, and from April 2008 has strengthened this relationship by revitalizing and renaming the product brand ENLIGHTENED™ - Swarovski Elements. Showing the creativity that lies at the heart of the company, Swarovski's own-brand lines of accessories, jewelry and home decor are sold through more than 1,600 retail outlets in all major fashion capitals.

The exclusive Daniel Swarovski accessories collection has meanwhile become the company's couture signature.The Swarovski Crystal Society has close to 350,000 members worldwide, keen collectors of the celebrated crystal figurines. And in Wattens, Swarovski Kristallwelten, the multi-media crystal museum, was opened in 1995, as a celebration of Swarovski's universe of innovation and inspiration. The Swarovski corporation also includes Tyrolit®, manufacturing grinding tools, Swareflex, for road safety reflectors and Swarovski Optik, producing precision optical instruments.

Author: Lion Technology Inc.
Dateline: Sacramento, California ()

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Lion Technology Inc., a nationally renowned regulatory compliance training firm, will present their two-day Hazardous Waste in California workshop series during the month of May. These courses are designed for industry professionals that must assure compliance with California's hazardous waste regulations. Workshops will be held in San Diego on May 3-4; Ontario on May 6-7; San Jose on May 10-11; and Sacramento on May 13-14, 2010.”



A R T I C L E:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Lion Technology Inc., a nationally renowned regulatory compliance training firm, will present their two-day Hazardous Waste in California workshop series during the month of May. These courses are designed for industry professionals that must assure compliance with California's hazardous waste regulations. Workshops will be held in San Diego on May 3-4; Ontario on May 6-7; San Jose on May 10-11; and Sacramento on May 13-14, 2010.

The workshop features comprehensive coverage of the California Hazardous Waste Regulations (Title 22), including waste identification, management standards for universal wastes, on-site management requirements, manifesting, emergency planning and response, recordkeeping, and the latest legislative initiatives.

Lion Technology Director of Corporate Training, Scott Dunsmore, a national expert on hazardous waste management, stresses that proper hazardous waste handling, management, and disposal is critical, especially in light of rising enforcement, which is now $37,500 per day/per violation.

"Regulators have often stated that inadequate or no training has been at the root of non-compliance. With a slow economy and budget tightening, the reflex is to go towards shorter and inexpensive training options. However, with enforcement initiatives on the increase, short changing your training puts you at risk of costing you more in the long run. Adequate training is essential to EHS excellence," says Dunsmore.

Tuition is $795 per person, with group discounts available. Registration includes course reference materials, networking luncheon, certificate of achievement, and one year of follow-up support. Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. and the workshop runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Pre-registration is highly recommended. To register, call (888) 546-6511 or visit us online at www.Lion.com/Title22Training .

Metrology: Inspection at the Speed of Light

Author: George Products Company, Inc.
Dateline: Middletown, Delaware Fri, 26 Mar 2010

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “MIDDLETOWN, Del. -- Industry leaders frustrated with high cost of inspection: push for speed in the quality department without sacrificing accuracy or adding complexity. These days, equipment is only as good as the software that runs it. According to Erik Adams, of George Products Company, 'Customers don't want a collection of parts; they want a turn-key solution to their inspection problems that includes powerful software to drive the system.'”



A R T I C L E:

MIDDLETOWN, Del. -- Industry leaders frustrated with high cost of inspection: push for speed in the quality department without sacrificing accuracy or adding complexity. These days, equipment is only as good as the software that runs it. According to Erik Adams, of George Products Company, "Customers don't want a collection of parts; they want a turn-key solution to their inspection problems that includes powerful software to drive the system."

The OASIS Inspection System is driven by its own proprietary software that powers the system to operate at very high inspection speeds. New to the system is a strobe light source that creates the part shadow to be measured, and is controlled by the OASIS software to pulse light in micro-second bursts that effectively stops action. Couple that with a strobe rate of 6 bursts per second, synchronized with the shutter on the digital camera, and the result is the OASIS' ability to measure all external dimensions in under a second -- all without the part ever needing to stop.

In yet another newly released feature geared toward speed, one-click reporting now instantly takes all measurements and exports them to SPC programs or the OASIS report spreadsheet.

"The speed of the Oasis has reduced our inspection time to seconds per component; reducing the need for a dedicated inspector doing audits and allowing the operator to inspect each component 100 percent. This has resulted in real-time data acquisition that helps manage tool wear and keeps the process stable during operation. The Oasis is the perfect inspection system to reduce inspection labor and is a great tool to monitor process operations," said Daniel Proveaux, Quality Assurance Manager, Certified Six Sigma Black Belt, COQE Certified Quality Manager, Goodrich Corporation - Bamberg, South Carolina.

About George Products Company, Inc.:

Founded in 1951 and located in Middletown, Delaware, George Products Company is the manufacturer of the OASIS Inspection System. The OASIS is a full-featured machine vision inspection system designed to measure multiple profile dimensions on parts, accurate to +/- 0.0001-inches, with all the measurements done in less than a second.
