NASCENT’s 2016 Escape Challenge

On July 6th & 7th, NASCENT created internal teams and had a contest to see which team could escape first, fastest and with almost no clues!

Teams were challenged to escape the Bank Heist at Exit Strategy here in Charlotte. We also had our JAX team working to escape in Jacksonville, FL. The rooms were extremely difficult and only 2 clues were awarded to the teams.

After an hour of being locked in a number of very small rooms, finding clues, solving puzzles and having to communicate and work together, it came down to one team: Victorious Secret got the furthest of all the teams with their 2 clues winning the contest!

We celebrated company-wide with lunch and Italian ice.  The winning team was awarded $50 gift cards for their success!

During the ceremony, in a moving tribute to James Z. Peepas, Fabio Teti explained that the kiosk is named in memory of James Z. Peepas, an industry pioneer, colleague, and friend whose tireless efforts enabled NASCENT to enter the railroad sector, providing NS with their first AGS in 2002.

Tribute to James Z. Peepas
A crystal commemorative plaque engraved with the words, “Dedicated in honor of James Z. Peepas, an Intermodal Industry Pioneer.  His tireless dedication to improving the intermodal industry resulted in the introduction of NASCENT to the railroad sector” was presented to Mr. James Shondel, grandson of James Peepas and CEO of Remprex, who received it on behalf of his grandfather.

Environmental Chamber

NASCENT Engineering is proud to announce the recent addition of a Tenney Environmental Chamber to our testing facilities.

With the acquisition of the Tenney T-30, NASCENT has significantly increased the in-house capabilities and sophistication of our test suite. Capable of testing from -70C to 200C, with relative humidities from 0 to 98% and large enough to contain 2 entire G6 Kiosk cabinets; we can now completely reproduce environmental conditions from the humid Caribbean to the frigid Arctic.
