Laird’s Telematics teams across the world have focused on creating a collaborative relationship with Caterpillar to deliver innovative product designs with superior service and delivery.

A Dash of Maxwell’s: A Maxwell’s Equations Primer – Part One

Solving Maxwell’s Equations for real-life situations, like predicting the RF emissions from a cell tower, requires more mathematical horsepower than any individual mind can muster. These equations don’t give the scientist or engineer just insight, they are literally the answer to everything RF.

Of the several thousand suppliers to Caterpillar, only a small number are able to achieve the highest level of SQEP certification.  Laird had earned Bronze Level certification from Caterpillar in 2011 and 2012.  The improvement to Platinum demonstrates Laird’s commitment to continuous improvement.

“Reliable fulfillment is a primary focus of Laird and absolutely key to our ability to attract and retain blue-chip customers like Caterpillar,” said Randy Andreen, vice president of sales for Laird. “We are constantly working to improve not only our shipping performance, but everything that goes into reliable fulfillment including quality, our global supply chain and our overall operations. We are extremely pleased and honored to be recognized for our performance by Caterpillar Inc.”
