A Time to Salute the U.S. Armed Forces

As we go through the daily grind of the work week, focusing on the job at hand, it’s easy to lose sight of the bigger picture going on around the world. The United States has been engaged in two full-scale wars recently; and saber rattling from the governments of North Korea and Iran should serve to warn us that America could become involved in another major conflict with little or no warning in the future.

That’s why we want to take this moment to note that May is National Military Appreciation Month and to offer a gesture of support for all our customers in the U.S. armed forces and to their colleagues.

Various organizations around the country during May will be holding activities, large and small, to recognize the contributions of veterans and active service members to the defense of our way of life, and May is the perfect month for these honors. The U.S Congress passed a resolution in 1999 establishing Military Appreciation Month, in part, due to the various holidays and observances already on the calendar: Loyalty Day (May 1), Public Service Recognition Week (May 5-10), Victory in Europe Day (May 8), Military Spouse Appreciation Day (May 10), Armed Forces Day (May 19), and Memorial Day (May 30). This year’s theme is “The United States Armed Forces: The Strength of the Red, White and Blue.”

As we mentioned in our last blog post, our team at Behlman has been privileged to work with members of the military in supplying power equipment to several branches of the armed forces for applications in a variety of frontline defense systems. We’ve helped the Navy with mission-critical units used for shipboard, airborne, and special operations purposes. We’ve worked with the Air Force to install power supplies for large-body, fixed-wing aircraft. We’ve worked to provide power components for the Army’s state-of-the-art Patriot Missile System. And the list goes on and on.

So as we go about the daily grind this month, we’ll be keeping in mind that the work we do plays some small part in helping the armed forces of America do their job: securing the nation. And we can take an occasional moment out of the day to salute the men and women in uniform who are carrying out that dangerous mission.

Calling All Customers

Welcome to our new blog. We’ve taken the plunge because we want to reach out to you to start a digital dialog. In these pages, from now on, you’ll be able to read about some of the ideas we have in mind for the future of Behlman Electronics, as well as topics in our industry we think will be of interest to you. We hope you’ll find these ideas engaging enough to get in touch with us to begin a conversation about how we can help you meet your power supply needs.

Let’s start with a little background on Behlman. We’ve been in business for over 55 years, serving a diverse array of customers as an engineering, manufacturing and consulting firm for power products. In that time, we’ve grown to become a world-class provider of the highest quality Standard, Modified Standard, Custom and COTS (commercial off the shelf) AC Power Sources, Frequency Converters, Inverters, DC-DC, AC-DC, DC-AC, VPX, VME, and Uninterruptible Power Sources (UPS) for commercial, industrial and military mission-critical applications.

We’ve demonstrated over time that we have a proven ability to solve our customers’ most challenging power requirements, and we support our products with personal service that should exceed even your highest expectations. To be honest, we recognize that our competitors make quality power supplies too, so we understand that providing our customers the highest level of support is what sets us apart.

Some of the projects we’ve worked on recently for our clients include:

  • Products used in the U.S. Navy for fire-control systems, because they can withstand the rigors of shipboard, airborne and mobile applications. These products are designed for missions with a focus on littoral (near shore) and land attack, as well as for special operations.
  • Power supplies selected by a major manufacturer of nuclear power plant reactor-control systems.
  • Products used on U.S. Air Force large-body, fixed-wing aircraft.
  • Power supplies that have been an essential tool for oil and gas exploration, because our remote monitoring and control features enable customers to use them in locations too hazardous for the deployment of full-time, on-site operators.
  • Power systems that support the operation and functionality of missile systems such as the Patriot.

Our goal is to ensure Total Customer Satisfaction by providing you with the most reliable equipment and highest level of service, so you will recognize Behlman as your source for power.  And we want you to get in touch with us, to offer your feedback as part of our new digital dialog.
