Ok - well to start out, it was not an actual vacation. But, in June, I did have the great pleasure of taking a business trip to Middlefield, Connecticut, home of Cooper Atkins Corporation. Cooper Atkins is a premier manufacturer of temperature, humidity, and time monitoring solutions. They got their start by the invention of the oven bimetal thermometer in 1885. Over the years, Cooper Atkins has seen many different acquisitions and is now solely owned by Carol Wallace, who was our gracious host over the course of a few days.
