The past couple weeks saw some exciting ways to improve employee safety, modernize freight rail, and even a new tool to determine belt wear-and-tear. 

Most impressive was the announcement of an office building to be 3D-printed from beginning to end. One guess which nation will be taking that on.

We’re also proud to announce BSM’s pending merger with Webtech Wireless and excited to see how we can leverage this partnership to advance telematics.
