Hi, I’m Paul Darley, thanks for coming to watch the June issue of Inside Darley.

Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer. It’s important to relax and spend time with your family, but it’s also a time to remember the servicemen who gave their lives for our nation. Keep in mind this coming Thursday, June 6th will mark the 75th Anniversary of D-Day.

If you can get out on the water this summer, the boat you will be on will likely have a Fireboy-Xintex fire suppression system.

MAE Suppression system

We control about 80% of the fire detection and suppression market for recreation boats. Our first attachment is a press release detailing the release of our MAE fire suppression system. The system is designed for land-based applications like server rooms. It just received FM approval and have over 50 distributors for fast installation. Here is the video of the system in action.

We all know that recession is somewhere on the horizon, but that doesn’t mean companies don’t have ways to protect themselves. Walter Frick wrote an article for the Harvard Business Review detailing the strategies of the companies that bounced back quickest from a recession. Walter has a ton of useful examples and data to back up these strategies.

Our second attachment is an article from KPMG called A Reality check for today’s C-Suite on Industry 4.0. In the article, the writer surmises we are in the fourth industrial revolution. It is important for us to question everything and understand where you want to be positioned on the value chain spectrum. The article presents an improved value framework that can help companies in their pursuit of success.

Digital marketing is quickly becoming one of the most important aspects of a company’s marketing portfolio. For a lot of older companies, the digital marketing space can seem chaotic and difficult to navigate. Our third article, “The seven decisions that matter in a digital transformation: A CEO’s guide to reinvention,” talks about what companies can do to succeed in a digital environment.

7 Decisions

From where, when, to how, this article answers questions that every company should be asking.

We have a lot of events this June. We are having the 14th Annual Home Day this June 7th at MABAS, HQ in Wheeling, IL. Home Day is a great event for first responders to catch the ear of public officials.
