daratechPLANT also announced that it has launched an industry-based Advisory Board, and has named Joseph Morray, Jr., President of Trinity Technologies, to chair the new Board. Mr. Morray is a recognized leader in the plant industries and has frequently spoken at daratechPLANT conferences.
As president of Trinity Technologies, Mr. Morray consults with operating and technology companies in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and energy industries to enhance their use of automation tools for the plant lifecycle.
