Muskogee Technology Team Photo

Atmore Chamber Names “2020 Hometown Heroes”

ATMORE, ALABAMA, USA, April 13, 2021 / — Muskogee Technology (MT) has received the Atmore Area Chamber of Commerce Hometown Hero award for producing non-FDA approved COVID-19 personal protection products for businesses and health care providers.

In early 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak challenged MT leadership to pivot business operations to begin producing an array of life-saving products. The MT team accepted the challenge to do the vital work of making workplaces safer. MT manufactured over 100,000 isolation gowns for COVID-19 health care workers in over 40 health care organizations, including the Atmore Community Hospital and some health facilities as far away as Pennsylvania. MT also designed and produced thousands of acrylic partitions and sneeze guards to separate workers from customers and provide an additional layer of protection from COVID-19 transmission. These barrier partitions were delivered to locations as far away as Aruba and Curaçao. MT also produced hand sanitizer stands and iPad Kiosk Stands to provide for touchless temperature screening for Atmore area businesses.

Muskogee Technology President/CEO Westly Woodruff stated, “I am honored to have MT staff and leadership recognized for their contributions to others’ health and safety. I wish to thank the Atmore Area Chamber leaders and fellow Chamber members for this honor.”

MT is uniquely equipped to produce these products locally and at the speed and level of quality so urgently needed during this pandemic. The items not only contributed to safer workplaces; they also helped reduce stress on business owners by supporting a depleted supply chain. MT leadership continues its commitment to the community, our team, and local economies by providing well-paying jobs in emerging business markets to better serve Atmore and beyond.

The Poarch Band of Creek Indians’ Tribal Chairwoman and CEO, Stephanie A. Bryan, said, “I want to thank the Atmore Chamber of Commerce for their constant support of the Tribe. We are always happy to contribute to the community and will continue to look for ways to do so.”

Atmore Chamber President Emilee Waters commented, “We at the Chamber were honored to recognize Muskogee Tech as a Hometown Hero for our 2020 awards. 2020 was a year for adaptation, teamwork, and hard work! Muskogee Technology navigated and successfully concurred all three! Without industry leaders like Muskogee Technology, Atmore would not be where we are today. To be among these Heroes is humbling and gives us all something to strive for. The Chamber thanks you all for going above and beyond in a time when people were lost and scared for what was next and how to navigate our daily lives safely!”

MT has been an active member of the Atmore Area Chamber since 1993.

With increased interest in global footprints, businesses drive international trade through strategic partnership efforts

After a year of closed borders and lockdown measures, businesses’ renewed interest in global trade bounce back.

At the forefront of our work, is making sure that companies connect with only those best placed to deliver a real business outcome”

— Meir Shachar, Powerlinx CEO

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, April 13, 2021 / — Finding business partners to collaborate with has never been more important. Entering into a new overseas market is hard and time-consuming, as most suppliers and partners may have their own ambitions for joint ventures or reciprocal deals to distribute their own products.

This lack of supply chain visibility and transparency is one of several factors restricting improvements and supply chain innovation. New technologies, however, are allowing for increased trust between suppliers and their customers. Such innovations will decrease lead times, create stability and, ultimately, encourage more collaboration.


Platforms like Powerlinx are empowering firms to act on opportunities and collaborate with like-minded companies. For businesses prepared to deliver within this new way of doing business, the potential payoff is substantial.

“At the forefront of our work, is making sure that companies connect with only those best placed to deliver a real business outcome” said Meir Shachar, CEO, Powerlinx.

As the first global Business-meets-Business (BmB) platform, Powerlinx has launched its new app for iOS and Android devices. With an enhanced user experience and more advanced global business data fueling the platform, Powerlinx is doubling down on its efforts to connect businesses around the world to proactively identify opportunities for growth.

About Powerlinx

POWERLINX is the first global Business meets Business (BmB) matching app. Its mission is to make the process of searching for the most relevant business opportunities and partnerships fast and easy, so only the best matches appear.

Alabama Top Truck Stop

Creek Travel Plaza offers spacious trucker accomodations

Trucker Path Recognizes Independent Atmore Business

ATMORE, ALABAMA, USA, April 13, 2021 / — Creek Travel Plaza (CTP) announced today it was ranked the second most preferred truck stop in the state of Alabama by Trucker Path (TP) mobile app users. Over 6,000 truck stops nationwide were ranked based on feedback and reviews from over 500,000 truckers.

CTP General Manager, Tammy Smith, remarked, "I'm proud of our team and not surprised they have been recognized by Trucker Path again for 2020. Our staff is dedicated to the highest standards of customer service and satisfaction."

This award-winning independent facility has been recognized by TP users multiple times. In 2017, CTP was named the #1 Independent Truck Stop in the nation and the #1 Alabama truck stop, and in 2016, it ranked as the 24th most preferred truck stop in the country. TP did not award rankings in 2018 and 2019.

Owned by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, Creek Travel Plaza is among a collection of tribally-owned businesses managed by Creek Indian Enterprises Development Authority (CIEDA).

CIEDA President/CEO Cody Williamson commented, "This most recent recognition of excellence for the Creek Travel Plaza is a testament to their team's commitment and dedication to providing our hardworking truckers with a clean, safe, and friendly place to stop in, refuel and relax. Since opening in 2012, they have maintained this high level of quality hospitality, and it shows by the awards they continue to receive. We are all very proud of the job they do."

Poarch Band of Creek Indians’ Chairwoman and CEO, Stephanie A. Bryan said, "I am so proud of our CTP team. Smith was one of the first employees hired at CTP when they opened in 2012, and it's clear she understands what it takes to make customers feel welcome and cared for when they stop at CTP. Her team strives to keep travelers coming back again and again."

Trucker Path is America's fastest-growing platform for the trucking industry, providing navigational assistance and freight matching. The TP website states that the app is regarded as America's most popular app for truckers. It helps truckers find truck stops, available parking, rest areas, open/closed weigh stations, and much more. With the additional challenges of COVID-19, the app's services are more valued than ever to help truckers find the best places to stop.

The survey found drivers prefer locations, such as Creek Travel Plaza, because they offer abundant parking, clean bathrooms and facilities, friendly service, laundry services, free Wi-Fi, and competitive diesel prices. Independent restaurant choices, such as the Diner at CTP, scored high for drivers when choosing their travel stops.

Aquafighter® expande su presencia en España y América Latina con tecnología diésel sin agua y socios nacionales.

La imagen de Aquafighter muestra una instalación sencilla y un cambio sencillo. Seguro de usar sin productos químicos nocivos.

Aquafighter® de DieselCare AS Noruega: Aquafighter es una solución simple para purificar el combustible del agua y mantener el tanque de combustible libre de agua en todo momento.

Aquafighter elimina el agua que queda atrapada dentro del combustible y también elimina el agua que está en el fondo del tanque. Deje diésel claro y brillante.

Aquafighter® antes y después: la diferencia es clara.

Logotipo de Berylo SL - El socio de Aquafighter es España y Portugal.

Berylo SL – Aquafighter Socio en Madrid, España

Aquafighter® combina los beneficios de los aditivos de combustible y el pulido de combustible. Elimina el agua del diesel y del fondo del tanque.

Estamos entusiasmados con la tecnología Aquafighter®, porque ahora podemos ofrecer a nuestros clientes de España y Portugal una solución que ponga fin al agua en los tanques diésel.”

— Enrique Mulero, de Berylo SL

MADRID, ESPAñA, April 13, 2021 / — Aquafighter®, una nueva solución ahora disponible en España, México y en toda América Latina, purificará el diésel y mantendrá los depositos diésel libres de agua. Esta nueva tecnología eliminará o reducirá en gran medida los riesgos creados por el agua o la condensación en el combustible y en el tanque como la bacteria, el crecimiento microbiano, la corrosión del tanque, filtros obstruidos, fallo del inyector, la reducción de la eficiencia del combustible, la pérdida de aceleración, la degradación del combustible, el estancamiento del motor y el fallo del motor.

Enrique Mulero, de Berylo SL, es socio Aquafighter en España y Portugal: "Estamos entusiasmados con la tecnología Aquafighter, porque ahora podemos ofrecer a nuestros clientes de España y Portugal una solución que ponga fin al agua en los tanques diésel. Nunca antes esto fue posible, pero con Aquafighter, ahora podemos sacar agua del combustible directamente y también evitar la acumulación de agua. Y el resultado final es que eliminamos o reducimos en gran medida el uso de filtros, daños por el agua, corrosión del tanque, desgaste del motor, problemas de inyectores, puesta a punto del motor y todos los demás síntomas que provienen del agua en el tanque de combustible".

El coste del agua en el combustible diésel se suma muy rápidamente y contribuye a la mayoría de los fallos de equipos, reparaciones y costes de mantenimiento. El problema no es sólo debido al agua, sino más comúnmente la mezcla del agua con el combustible. Si bien algunas soluciones pueden mitigar la acumulación de agua, no pueden hacer mucho con el agua estancada. Otras soluciones obligan a sacar el agua y el combustible del tanque, creando un entorno perfecto para el crecimiento de bacterias.

Sin embargo, Aquafighter® es la primera solución que realmente puede eliminar el agua del combustible y toda el agua libre directamente en el propio tanque. Al hacer esto, Aquafighter purifica el combustible del agua y también protege el tanque de combustible del agua.

Per Jahnsrud, CEO de DieselCare AS, dice que "El fuel está a menudo en la parte inferior, de la lista de activos debidamente administrados en las operaciones que utilizan diésel. Sin embargo, como profesional de gestión de combustibles de carrera, esto debería ser todo lo contrario. El combustible que se le permite entrar en su motor, es un factor determinante para que su barco o máquina diésel funcionara correctamente. Y en la mayoría de los casos, si la máquina no funciona correctamente, la operación no procede de la manera más eficiente o eficaz que debería".

Aquafighter® fue desarrollado por DieselCare AS en Kongsvinger, Noruega en 2015. A partir de 2017, después de extensas pruebas de laboratorio y campo, fue utilizado por una importante compañía internacional de combustible para devolver millones de litros de diésel residual de nuevo en combustible de calidad especificación y también como una solución de mantenimiento de tanques para mantener sus tanques de estación de combustible libres de agua en todo momento. Como solución de mantenimiento, Aquafighter® mantiene el combustible mejor que las especificaciones en todo momento, evita el crecimiento de bacterias/insectos, reduce la necesidad de reemplazo de filtros, elimina el desarrollo de combustible degradado/nublado y reduce significativamente el desgaste en cada parte desde el tanque hasta el motor.

Aquafighter® tiene aplicación en todos los tanques de diésel y biodiesel accesibles. Es excelente para generadores, equipos agrícolas, tanques de almacenamiento, equipos de construcción y minería, camiones.

Aquafighter® está disponible en varios tamaños para tanques con aberturas tan pequeñas como 1.5 pulgadas y capacidades que van desde 5 onzas a 10 galones.

Israeli Spin-Out Brings World’s First AI Control Tower For Managing Dynamic Activity on Industrial Floors To Market

634AI Logo

Intelligence in a box: MAESTRO system hardware

No tunnel vision: MAESTRO can see and analyse the whole floor

634AI, a MusashiAI spin-out company, is launching MAESTRO, a software solution focused on orchestrating mobile operations in indoor environments.

NEVE ILAN, ISRAEL, April 13, 2021 / — MusashiAI, the Israeli-Japanese ‘Industry 4.0’ joint venture, announces the spin-out of 634AI, a company focused on developing MAESTRO – the world’s first fully integrated RTLS-driven central control tower for streamlining management of any mobile task on an industrial floor.

The spin-out allows 634AI to focus exclusively on bringing to market MAESTRO, which uses Computer Vision and AI to control and monitor a broad spectrum of movements on an industrial floor through its state-of-the-art spatial mapping and movement orchestration.

Anything from tracking the movements of goods, real time safety alerts for forklifts and driven pallet jacks, to navigating and managing fleets of AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles) and AMRs (Autonomous Mobile Robots), all through a unified and flexible modular system and at a fraction of the price of today’s solutions.

MAESTRO will make comprehensive industrial floor management possible and affordable, allowing large-scale and small-scale businesses to dramatically increase the efficiency and productivity of their indoor operations.

Onn Fenig, CEO of 634AI, said: “What has been happening in the AMR and the industrial floor automation industry over the last few years has been like spending millions on developing zero-gravity pens, when all we’ve needed has actually just been a pencil.

“Our motivation for creating MAESTRO was to give businesses a practical and affordable tool that will enable them to enjoy safer and smarter indoor mobility. We’re on a mission to make any indoor task autonomous and affordable.”

The majority of AMRs on the market today are hardware-heavy, often require complex setup and maintenance, and are outside of most companies’ price ranges. Each AMR platform operates as a completely stand-alone robot and a maze of different software is required to operate, navigate and manage a variety of different AMRs.

Today, even with the gradual adoption of the VDA5050 protocol for AMR interoperability, coordinating different AMRs of different functionalities and from different domains is not straightforward. In addition, many AMR designs also fail at a drawing board level to develop a capacity for workplace synergy with human counterparts.

One central controller for a whole facility or operation all but eliminates the threshold for the adoption of AMRs by large, medium, and even small businesses.

Onn Fenig explains the simplicity of 634AI’s solution:
“A simple kit can turn even a mechanical pallet jack into a fully autonomous vehicle that can connect to MAESTRO. MAESTRO plots routes for AMRs, spots and classifies hazards and obstacles, anticipates potential collisions ahead of time, and orchestrates the safe and efficient completion of different tasks – for robots, people and traditional, non-robotic vehicles.

“Most AMRs today suffer from tunnel vision, with their eyes and ears embedded within the robot itself. This limited point of view provides a safety risk, so to mitigate against it, they have to move very slowly and require an army of engineers and technicians to keep them on track – which in turn lowers productivity and makes them even more expensive and not really autonomous.

“Industry 4.0 isn’t some futuristic vision of a far-fetched world – it’s happening today. 634AI and MAESTRO have simplified and democratized indoor mobility and the adoption of AMR platforms, delivering the sizable benefits available of Industry 4.0.”


About 634AI

634 AI was founded to enable a safer, more controlled and effective indoor mobility.
We're driven by a vision of simplifying every-day mobile task fulfilment indoors, and making it accessible for everyone, everywhere.

Our solutions offer practical and affordable tools for indoor mobility in the digital autonomy era. We developed MAESTRO as a fully integrated RTLS driven central control tower to streamline management of any mobile task on an industrial floor. MAESTRO’s top-down visibility enables customers a fully coordinated operation of anything mobile – be it track and trace movements of goods, real time safety alerts for forklifts and driven pallet jacks, or navigate and manage fleets of autonomous robotic platforms, all through a unified and flexible modular system – at an affordable price.

634AI is on a mission to make any indoor task autonomous – from the industrial floor to the airport terminal, the warehouse floor or the hospital floor, and beyond.

Aero Asset Reports 2021 Market Dip for Preowned Twin Helicopters

After two strong quarters, retail sales drop in 1st Quarter

Comparing the first quarter of 2021 to 2020, the on-market supply of twin-engine helicopter for sale decreased to pre-pandemic levels.”

— Aero Asset Vice President of Market Research Valerie Pereira

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, April 12, 2021 / — Aero Asset reports that first quarter 2021 retail sales of preowned twin-engine helicopters dropped after two successive strong quarters. The Canadian-based helicopter trading firm just released its first quarter 2021 Heli Market Trends report, summarizing transactions during the period for 13 twin-engine models in the light, medium and heavy weight categories.

“Comparing the first quarter of 2021 to 2020, the on-market supply of twin-engine helicopter for sale decreased to pre-pandemic levels,” said Aero Asset Vice President of Market Research Valerie Pereira. “We saw a parallel decline in both transactions and supply,” she added.

Deal Pipeline Continues Upward

The absorption rate regressed in the first quarter following two consecutive quarters of improvement as the economy emerged from a pandemic-triggered economic trough. After four consecutive quarters of decline in the number of deals pending at various stages of transaction, the deal pipeline grew in the fourth quarter of 2020 and another 10 percent in the first quarter of this year and is now back to pre-pandemic levels.

All Categories Down

Light twin-engine and heavy weight helicopter retail sales volume contracted slightly in the first quarter from the fourth quarter. Medium weight helicopter retail sales dropped by half in the first quarter after a strong uptick in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Liquidity Lineup

The most liquid preowned market in the first quarter was the Airbus H145. The H135 which tied at first place last quarter, slipped into fourth place. In the first quarter, five of the 13 helicopter markets in the lineup saw absolutely no preowned trades, mostly in the medium weight class.
