Sani-Matic Inc. Opens New, State-of-the-Art Manufacturing and Office Facility

Tuesday, May 21, 2019


Intimate ribbon-cutting and flag raising ceremony signify grand opening; facility tours spotlight innovative environment

Facility designed and constructed to increase operational efficiencies, support collaborative culture, and enhance customer experience

SUN PRAIRIE, Wisc., May 21, 2019—Sani-Matic Inc., a Wisconsin-based manufacturer of sanitary process cleaning equipment and components, today announced the opening of its new, state-of-the-art manufacturing and office facility. A small ribbon-cutting and flag raising ceremony marked its grand opening with group tours spotlighting the facility’s innovative environment.

Critical partners of the new facility including all Sani-Matic employees, Ryan Companies, Eppstein Uhen Architects (EUA), Avison Young, WING Capital Group, BMO Harris Bank, and Sun Prairie Mayor Paul Esser, attended the ribbon-cutting and flag raising ceremony to honor both the project’s success and Sani-Matic’s military veterans.

In August 2018, Sani-Matic began building the modern facility to consolidate its two facilities into one larger, more efficient facility, ensuring strategic growth.

“We started this journey to get our talented group of craftsmen, engineers, and employees under one roof, to learn from one another, innovate, and generate operational efficiencies,” stated Sani-Matic president and CEO, Aaron Zell. “We also kept the customer experience top of mind with each facility layout decision.”

Customer-Focused Features

The new facility’s enhanced features elevate the customer experience and allow for collaboration and innovation.

Sani-Matic hosts a significant number of customers for week-long Factory Acceptance Tests (F.A.T.s) every year. The substantial annual customer traffic drove a layout that includes four designated F.A.T. rooms looking onto the manufacturing assembly bays and test area for integrated project participation. The company located the rooms across from the engineering team for ready access to project engineers and the documentation staff.

In addition to a steady flow of customers every year, many Sani-Matic sales channel partners seek onsite classroom and hands-on knowledge sharing. The need for an expertise exchange space inspired the Knowledge Center and Training Lab. The Knowledge Center provides a modern classroom environment, and the Training Lab houses vital Sani-Matic equipment to allow hands-on education for distributors, manufacturer’s representatives, customers, and Sani-Matic field service technicians.

A Future of Innovation

“While we are known for high-quality equipment, we also are experts at making smart equipment,” said Zell. “Our new automation and engineering labs provide an innovative space for our automation and engineering experts to create a future product offering of smarter systems.”

In addition to the facility’s innovation labs and amenities, a large café facilitates collaboration and idea sharing between all departments.

Infosec unveils expanded channel program to address security & IT professional skills and certification training

MADISON, Wis., April 24, 2019 — Infosec today announced major enhancements to its popular Infosec Channel Partner Program for managed services providers (MSPs), managed security service providers (MSSPs), value-added resellers (VARs) and OEMs. In addition to security awareness and training solution Infosec IQ, the program now includes both Infosec Skills and Infosec Flex to create the only channel program in the industry to provide across-the-board, full-spectrum training needs for the clients of channel partners.

“Organizations face two primary security training issues today; their employees are not trained properly about cybersecurity and their security and IT staff are undertrained,” said Mike Nobers, director of global channel sales at Infosec. This is due to ever-changing security techniques and employees being recruited away to other companies because of the qualified security pro shortage.

“Infosec partners can now speak to this bigger issue across their client’s organization with Infosec IQ for employee security awareness training, plus Infosec Skills and Infosec Flex to address retaining and growing their security and IT teams,” Nobers added.

With Infosec IQ in their portfolios, channel partners can help clients build a cyber-alert workforce equipped to recognize, avoid and report suspicious activity, such as phishing. The Infosec Skills and Infosec Flex platforms are designed to ensure the client’s IT and security team’s skills are scaled to outsmart the latest threats and build defenses to counter tomorrow’s threats.

Free to join and easy to implement, the Infosec Channel Partner Program offers:

  • Unique to the industry — the most complete, one-stop shopping security awareness training program with access to Infosec IQ, Infosec Skills and Infosec Flex
  • Technical sales training to help clients build effective security awareness programs
  • Automation tools that make it easy to build security awareness training programs to deliver the right content to the right learner at the right time
  • Delegated administration that allows management of multiple clients’ security awareness programs from one platform
  • Automatic report generation that makes it easy to track and share training performance
  • Customizable learning experiences via more than 300 modules, including critical training in phishing, suspicious hosts, ransomware and password security

Launched in October 2018, the Infosec Channel Partner Program provides generous margins for channel partners. All partners receive dedicated channel sales support, marketing resources and training to be successful.
