We hope you all had a very happy Cinco de Stay-at-Home! As many of you may already know, May is not only the best month for margaritas, it's also National Electrical Safety Month. This year, we kicked it off with a big announcement. In case you missed it, here's what's new at Grace!
As of May 1, 2020, we have officially changed our company name to Grace Technologies to better align with our vision for serving customers in the future. After being in business for nearly thirty years, we decided it was time to reevaluate and simplify our branding to better reflect the innovative line-up of electrical safety products and predictive maintenance solutions we offer.
From connecting with customers to product development and manufacturing and logistics, technology plays a vital role in everything we do. The impact our customers experience through GracePorts, GracePESDs, and GraceSense is a direct result of family-owned and Iowa-bred innovation, design, and tenacity. These values will be upheld throughout this name transition with consumers and partners alike having a clearer picture of Grace’s identity and offerings.
When Phil Allen founded the company in 1993, after crafting a long list of potential risks, he stated: “And if somehow we succeed, it will be by His Grace, therefore we should name the business, Grace.” From day one, we're eternally grateful for all of you; our partners, customers, and friends for journeying with us throughout our twenty-seven years of business.
You can now visit us online at GraceTechnologies.com. Our team’s email addresses will also be changing to reflect this (example: Sales@GraceTechnologies.com). We'll be reaching out to all of our contacts with more information as we update our records such as graphics, documentation, and social media. Name changes are a long process, so please pass on any feedback you have.
