The end of summer is right around the corner in the Northern Hemisphere with the Autumnal Equinox on September 22nd. Happy Spring Equinox to all of you in the Southern Hemisphere 🙂

Did you know that equinoxes are not daylong events? They actually occur at the exact moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator, the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s Equator. At that instant, the Earth’s rotational axis is not tilted with respect to the Sun. In 2017, the Sun crosses the celestial equator from north to south on September 22nd at 20:02 UTC. Parts of Australia, New Zealand, and Russian will experience it on September 23rd due to time differences.

In the meantime, Rogers Corp. has had a busy summer. The Rogers Germany team won the Bosch Preferred Supplier of the Year Award. Congrats!

Rogers Elastomeric Material Solutions/Asia held their Preferred Partners Conference in July in Phuket, Thailand. About 140 people from 52 companies were in attendance. The conference theme of “Winning Partnerships” aptly describes the collaborative relationship between Rogers and its customers — partnering and working together to secure business.

Of course, there were also a few BBQs along the way, with happy, smiling Rogers employees around the world.
