“I’m looking forward to serving the members of MCA as Chairman of the Board of Directors,” said Vogl. “We’ll be focusing on promoting motion control technology to existing market areas to help our customers improve their competitiveness, as well as introducing motion control to market segments who don’t currently use or understand the value of the technology. We will continue to build on our statistics program which provides real and useful market data to the industry,” added Vogl. “MCA membership continues to grow, as a matter of fact, we’re at a record high, and as more companies understand our mission to grow the industry, we look forward to their membership and support.”
