Spend five minutes with Aric, and you’ll see how his passion drives Quarion to become a thriving business. Aric began his career in automation in 1991 at the Aluminum Company of America (ALCOA, Newburgh, Indiana), followed by ten years at Frontier Kemper Constructors and Flanders Electric Motor Service (Evansville, Indiana).
In 2003, he successfully formed an automation solutions provider, Matrix Design Group, LLC (Newburgh, IN), and pioneered its Proximity Detection System, triggering its purchase by Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. (ARLP, Tulsa, Oklahoma). As a subsidiary of ARLP, Matrix became an industry leader in Mining Technologies and continued development of Proximity Detection Systems and Tracking Technologies.
Aric graduated in 1991 from Purdue University and holds a degree in Electrical Engineering. His 25 years of experience in controls and 13 years in business management are all put to good use as the President and CEO of Quarion Technology, Inc.
Although work keeps Aric busy, he still finds time to share with his family and enjoys the thrill of flying a single‑engine airplane when he gets the chance.
