This year, two local companies will be featured at the World Series – Delaware North (for its concessions) and Bak USA (for its Seal 8 tablets). Delaware North, headquartered in Buffalo, will be using the BAK USA tablets (made in Buffalo) to process concession orders at the game.
The tablets were designed to withstand the rugged elements of an outdoor game. The Gorilla Glass touchscreen is super tough. It’s rain proof, dust proof, and can operate in temperatures between 14 and 122 degrees Fahrenheit. The tablet has been built to handle the enormous stresses that it will be put through at Progressive Field, home to the Cleveland Indians.
According to bakusa.com, the Seal 8 operates on either Windows or Android operating system, runs on Intel Bay Trail processors, and long-lasting lithium polymer battery.
Buffalo might not be the city with the greatest sports achievements as of late, but it sure has come a long way in the economic realm. Between all of the start-ups ala 43North, the recent investments by Delaware North into their 250 Delaware headquarters, and the growth in the medical and tech industry (including Bak USA), there’s plenty to be proud of these days.
