"Intelex is an integral part of Ferro’s world-wide Safe from Within Program and is a critical piece of our larger effort to send all of our 6,500 employees home safely to their families at the end of the day, in some 17 time zones around the world. I hope you will remember our Ferro families and the service you provide to them indirectly when things get hectic. Nothing in the world is more important to them than Mom or Dad coming home safely at the end of the day, and your efforts in this regard are just as important as anything else we are doing within Ferro."
