Welcome back to our STEM Series: Summer Teaching Institute Industry Tours. In this series we are highlighting the local industries that welcomed our Summer Institute participants this summer. Read more about the Summer Institute here. This installment focuses on Day Automation.
Day Automation provides comprehensive HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning), Security/Access and Lighting control solutions to school districts, colleges, hospitals and many other businesses across the Northeast. Their systems are technologically monitored, producing data to help customers minimize energy consumption and maximize safety.
The thirty-seven year old company is still privately run. James Day and Jeff Day, owner-managers, are welcoming and eager to show educators the way their systems work at their facilities or by coming to classrooms. They stress the qualities of a successful employee: motivated, a self-starter, solution oriented and the ability to make things move the way they need to. Jobs range from being in the field, building and installing systems to software design to engineering solutions. They focus on providing satisfying, prompt customer service. Day Automation has a highly professional, problem solving, consumer focused, friendly environment.
