Antares has always been committed to technology in the capital region as well as statewide. We are excited to participate in the TEC-NEXT conference and especially to sponsor the Thursday morning kick-off breakfast. New technologies are changing and influencing heavy industry. South Louisiana is an industry-rich state, where new applications of technologies are already being deployed and more are being developed. According to an early Industry 4.0 report from McKinsey, manufacturers in the United States lag other nations in technology transitions in industry. There are already large conferences on this topic, but leaders from the petrochemical and chemical industry acknowledge there is a need for a more in-depth opportunity for engagement on this topic, where industry leaders can meet with their national and global counterparts in a small event setting to explore practices with each other, and interact with technology experts specializing in the Industry 4.0 space. There is an exciting opportunity to engage industry and technology leaders to see the latest, learn from each other, and envision what’s next.
Industry technology leaders from multiple manufacturing companies based in Louisiana are hosting this dynamic two-day event to gather experts from industry and technology for a high value, “TED” conference-like gathering. Local, national, global leaders from the chemical and petrochemical manufacturing industry will share what they are developing and installing currently as new technology-driven tools and processes, and technology leaders will participate.

Antares Software Developer Hunter Guest recently received his bachelor of science in software development, with an emphasis in Java, from Western Governors University (WGU). Software development has always been Hunter’s dream job. The dedication, problem solving and troubleshooting skills that go into it have always intrigued him. He joined the Navy right out of high school to travel the world. After 7 years in the service, he decided it was time to go back to school. It was at BRCC in his intro to HTML class that he wrote his first “HELLO WORLD.” After that, he was hooked. Soon thereafter, Hunter got his associates degree in software development from ITT Tech.
Over the years, Hunter has shown tremendous dedication to expanding his knowledge and expertise in the IT field. He has obtained the the following certifications: CompTIA A+ 901, CompTIA A+ 902, COMPTIA Project +, CIW User Interface Designer, CIW Advanced HTML5 and CSS Specialist. He is now looking more to Microsoft Certifications with an emphasis in ML(Machine Learning). AI technologies have always intrigued him and now with his bachelor’s degree out the way he wants to further his knowledge in this area.
The Antares family is extremely proud of Hunter’s ongoing achievements and his dedication to professional development.
