When I first decided to turn Manufacturing Happy Hour into a podcast, Joe Carson was the first person I tapped on the shoulder to be on the show because I knew he’d been absolutely crushing it at Pacific Blue Engineering. You can hear all about it in one of our latest episodes! – Joe is the Founder of Pacific Blue Engineering, a Long Beach-based control systems integrator that’s been growing across California and beyond for over 4 years. Like many entrepreneurs, Joe was leading a successful career at a large company. After spending his first 5 years out of college at Rockwell Automation, he couldn’t resist the startup urge any longer… In this episode, Joe walks us through his own journey of building Pacific Blue Engineering and the investments he makes in himself and his team to stay on top of their game – both technically and physiologically. We even get his perceptions on the future of automation, and why the opportunity to migrate legacy control systems and enable the Connected Enterprise have Joe excited for what’s ahead.
