Chicago-based distributor Newark element14 used the recent EDS 2015 conference to officially launch its newest industry website, ImAnEngineer.com. The site is a “content platform to celebrate engineers,” according to William Polk, PR and social media manager for Newark element 14.
“We wanted to acknowledge our customers and engineers in general for the commitment they make to the world,” Polk said. “A lot of the modern world would not exist without engineers.”
The new site differs from the distributor’s online community, element14.com, in that it does not contain user-generated content, Polk added. It includes stories on the history of engineering, industry trends, analysis, and profiles of engineers from a variety of fields. The site is gearing up to launch the “Engineering 100,” a list honoring successful engineers from various disciplines.
