BWI Eagle Shares Hometown with Another Historic Innovator
BWI Eagle's hometown of Butler, Pennsylvania is known for more than manufacturing world class remote controls.
Butler is the birthplace of one of the most famous vehicles in the world - the Jeep. In 1940, the US Army, knowing they would soon be drawn into WWII, contracted The American Bantam Car Company of Butler, PA to design a new multi-purpose, 4-wheel drive vehicle that could be used to transport troops and equipment over all kinds of terrain. In an incredible 45 days, the engineers at Bantam designed and delivered a prototype: the first Jeep. The Department of the Army was impressed and ordered 600,000 more. Because Bantam was a small company and could not produce the vehicles as fast as the Army needed them, the blueprints were shared with Ford and Willy's to help meet the demand.
Although the Bantam Car Co. closed in 1956, Butler still has a deep love for Jeeps. Butler hosts the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival annually, and holds the Guinness World Record for the Largest Jeep Parade! The record was set in 2015 when 2,420 Jeeps paraded through the city of Butler to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the original Bantam Jeep.

Employee Appreciation Day
Did you know? National Employee Appreciation Day is celebrated on the first Friday in March in the United States and Canada.
BWI Eagle is marking this day with a luncheon and new team T-shirts for everyone. Since we all look so wonderful in our new T-shirts, we decided it would be a good day to take a new team photo.
We're really happy with the new employee photo, but accomplishing such a professional looking shot, with this gang, wasn't as easy as you might think...
