The Veterans for Trump endorsement of Rep. Marjorie Greene was issued today by the national veterans organization. Veterans for Trump was founded in 2015 as part of the original Trump Campaign Collation and later operated a non profit known as Veterans for America First. Currently the group is part of the 2024 Trump campaign collation under the direction of Admiral Charles Kubic their national spokesman and President Stan Fitzgerald , a retired police detective. The organization speaks for millions of conservative veterans and is considered an influential primary endorsement.

The organization also has a Georgia state chapter led by attorney Jared Craig who will be carrying the endorsement of rep Greene at the state level as well. https://georgiavfaf.org

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene spoke last evening at her town hall event, for constituents only, in Cobb County Georgia. Veterans for Trump's Donna and Stan Fitzgerald were among the invited guests. Upon arriving some in the large crowd awaiting entry were expressing their dismay with the debt ceiling vote. Rep Greene took the town hall stage and explained in detail all the factors why she voted the way she did and when the event ended her speech and Q&A session was met with a standing ovation, no further dismay from her voters. The complete speech can be viewed at https://veteransfortrump.us/news

"Marjorie was aware that 12 Republicans were signing onto a petition by the Democrats if this was not passed which would have given everything the Democrats and Establishment wanted. Marjorie voted the right way resulting in a 1% decrease and an attachment for dividing future omnibus bills to have sections voted on. This was a win for American conservatives," said Pamela Reardon, a Cobb County Georgia 2020 Presidential Delegate who attended the town hall.

"Congresswoman Greene has always been loyal to our country, her constituents, our America First agenda and to President Trump. Rep. Greene stands with our veterans and first responders; in fact, she gave personal assistance from her office to a vet at the town hall meeting last night. At Veterans for Trump we appreciate loyalty and those who fight for our country like Marjorie does so we are announcing today our organizational endorsement for the 2024 congressional election cycle," said Stan Fitzgerald president Veterans for Trump.

The Veterans team will be set up at the Georgia state GOP convention June 9th and 10th in Columbus Georgia with FBI Whistleblower Steve Friend doing meet and greets at their tables. The Group also sponsored the John Fredericks bus tour which will be at the convention promoting some of their nationally endorsed candidates including Caroline Jeffords, Salleigh Grubbs, Marci McCArthy and Vikki Consiglio.

Restroom Direct Rebrands as Berl’s Commercial Supply

After 15 years as Restroom Direct, the commercial building fixtures distributor is now Berl's Commercial Supply.

Restroom Direct Rebrands as Berl’s Commercial Supply
Berl's Commercial Supply

Berl's Commercial Supply, formerly Restroom Direct

Restroom Direct, one of the nation's largest distributors of commercial restroom accessories and drinking fountains, has changed its name to Berl's Commercial Supply.   

"The Restroom Direct brand has served us well," says Chris Berl, founder and President of Berl's Commercial Supply. "But we've literally grown outside of the restroom. Many of the products that we sell, like the Elkay water bottle filling stations, and Zurn Water Solutions valves, are not installed in restrooms. The name Berl's Commercial Supply helps to highlight how much the company has grown in the past and it also shows the possibility of continued growth in the future. At the same time, the new name punctuates the fact that we are still a family-run business that offers great customer service and cares deeply for its customers."

After years of leading the national market in the sale of restroom accessories, Berl's Commercial Supply now looks beyond the restroom towards every facet of a commercial building.

Along with the new name and new brand, comes a new website: www.berls.com. Berls.com will continue to sell all of the products found at Restroom Direct, including the hand dryer brands for which the company has always been known, like Dyson Airblade hand dryersXLERATOR hand dryers, and World Dryer along with non-hand dryer brands, like Suitmate Water Extractors, Bobrick, Koala Baby Changers, Bradley and ASI.   

"I am really excited about this change," says Peter Brainard, Jr., VP of sales at Berl's Commercial Supply. "This is a great indication of where we're heading as a company. We have the best products, the best team, and we look forward to continuing to serve our incredible customers throughout the country. This announcement comes on the heels of another record year of sales for Berl's, led by popular products that are in demand, in stock, and managed by an experienced and dedicated team of employees."  

The new and improved website features a multitude of user-friendly improvements, including:

  • Faceted search and navigation to narrow down and refine relevant options
  • Item Sorting - search results can now be sorted by top-selling popularity, price low to high, price high to low, as well as by search relevance
  • Compare Items - view up to four products side-by-side in a generated table to review specifications and make a more-informed choice
  • Request a Quote - registered users can ask for a custom quote directly from the product detail page when logged in
  • Quantity available - know if your item is in stock so you can purchase it with peace of mind 
  • Product Lead Times - if your item is not in stock, we will tell you when to expect shipment directly from the manufacturer

Berl's, and its European counterpart, Bavada, now have updated company logos emphasizing the strong business-to-business aspect of their markets.

Tactile Mobility Unveils Its Global Cloud-Enhanced Grip Map Solution

Tactile Mobility's newly released Cloud-Enhanced Grip Map Solution generates data on road conditions in real-time to inform drivers, improve tire grip, and mitigate weather-related accidents.

Tactile Mobility, a provider of tactile data and virtual sensing technology, has released its Cloud-Enhanced Grip Map to deliver insights about tire grip on any stretch of road, worldwide, in real-time. The solution was unveiled last week at EcoMotion 2023 in Tel Aviv.

The Cloud-Enhanced Grip Map aims to mitigate weather-related safety risks by providing real-time insights into driving conditions and anticipated road friction levels. This information helps drivers and vehicles to adjust speed, braking, and vehicle dynamics according to the changing road conditions ahead of the vehicle. 

In the U.S. alone, over 1.2 million crashes annually are weather-related, stemming from poor road conditions during rain, snow, sleet, and ice. In addition, more than 70 percent of weather-related accidents happen on wet pavement. But real-time insights into road conditions and expected friction levels can reduce the risk of accidents caused by adverse weather conditions.

Tactile Mobility's solution is made possible using software embedded into a vehicle electrical control unit (ECU), which collects data from a variety of existing vehicle sensors to create new metrics such as grip estimation. This onboard vehicle data is then uploaded to the tactile cloud, where it is normalized to reflect the average surface grip.

An unlimited number of vehicles can simultaneously contribute data to the grip map, where it is augmented with weather data, creating a comprehensive and real-time global grip map in different environmental conditions. 

"Tactile Mobility's Cloud-Enhanced Grip solution provides drivers and vehicles with real-time information about road conditions and tire grip, allowing them to identify potential hazards and take informed actions," said Shahar Bin-Nun, CEO of Tactile Mobility. "In addition, the software can calculate the unique grip of each vehicle, delivering highly accurate and relevant insights to the driver. This proactive approach empowers drivers to make informed decisions and stay safe on the road."

Benefits to a variety of stakeholders

Drivers: Provides real-time information on road conditions and tire grip, allowing drivers to identify potential hazards and take informed actions

OEMs and Tier-1s: Provides valuable insights into vehicle-road dynamics, to enhance safety features and improve driving experience.

Governments and municipalities: Can monitor road conditions and prioritize maintenance and repair efforts. This can help reduce the number of weather-related accidents and improve overall road safety.

Fleet operators: Monitors and optimizes the performance of a fleet of vehicles, reducing maintenance costs and downtime while improving driver safety.

About Tactile Mobility

Tactile Mobility is a leading provider of software-based solutions for tactile sensing and data analysis that is transforming the mobility sector. By leveraging existing vehicle sensors and advanced artificial intelligence, the company equips vehicles with the critical sense of "touch" to feel the road. This allows them to collect and analyze first-order data in real-time, providing valuable insights into vehicle-road dynamics.

ProEV’s Investments Pay Off as Commercial EV Sector Grows

New dedicated facility for design and manufacturing of electric vehicle components positions firm for growth alongside truck and bus OEMs.

The electric vehicle (EV) sector's exponential growth continued in the first half of 2022, with a 62% increase in global sales over the same period in 2021. Market expert McKinsey & Co. predicts EVs will dominate the truck market by 2035. Anticipating these trends, Promark Electronics, in 2015, created its ProEV™ division, which has made recent investments in technology, enhanced systems, and talent to position itself as a leading interconnect solutions supplier to commercial EV manufacturers. In 2021, Promark Electronics was acquired by Electrical Components International, a global wire harness engineering and manufacturing business, to position itself as the leader in commercial vehicle electrification. 

"Promark was already a well-established supplier of electronic components for the aerospace and defense industry and realized that the industry's need for top-quality, safety-critical parts aligned well with the EV sector," said Jarred Knecht, president of the ProEV™ and Promark divisions. 

"We did our research and realized that we wanted to be in vehicle electrification, the single largest change in propulsion systems in 100 years, the biggest change in our lifetimes. You just can't ignore this market," Knecht said. 

In August, ProEV™ opened the largest dedicated EV electrification facility in North America, the culmination of years of investing in manufacturing and quality-control technology and engineering, design, and technician professionals.  

"We don't have difficulty attracting people to join our team," Knecht said. "As soon as we tell them we're working on the next generation of transportation, the mission, and the sector that we're serving, it's a self-fulfilling process. Everyone wants to be a part of it." 

Knecht says ProEV™ is positioned for the industry's future growth. The commercial EV market is poised for tremendous growth. "The transition to ZE vehicles will disrupt the entire truck value chain and its players," states the McKinsey September 2022 report. By 2024, OEMS will have 70 models of EV trucks on the market, and by 2035, the consulting firm said, the majority of new trucks sold in the United States, European Union and China will be electric.  

Market intelligence and advisory firm Mordor Intelligence reported that the commercial EV market, valued at $67.51 billion in 2021, is projected to reach $258.78 billion by 2027. One driver in the United States is new regulatory requirements. While most commercial trucks, vans, and buses on the roads today are diesel-fueled vehicles, proposed legislation, like the Safer Affordable Fuel-Efficient (SAFE) vehicles rule, may mandate OEMs to manufacture a certain number of zero-emission vehicles. 

Those trends have Knecht forecasting a strong market for ProEV™'s new facility and expanded workforce. "OEMs are ready to build vehicles, designs are strong, and the value proposition for transitioning to an EV fleet is compelling," he said. "We are excited to support this once-in-a-lifetime change in transportation in North America."
