On August 7th, 2020, .decimal hit a huge milestone: we manufactured our 400,000th device. Despite the unusual circumstances, .decimal came together to celebrate–with masks on, of course.
.decimal will always be thankful for the employees who push our company forward. Even in these trying times, we still wanted to recognize and celebrate this group of employees and their longevity achievements, as well as everything that they’ve done with us during their continued loyalty.
Everyone at .decimal is SO excited to welcome Mary into the position of Chief Customer Officer (CCO)!
While Mary has been an employee at .decimal for almost 15 years, she has recently taken on this new role. Formerly the customer service, marketing, human resources, and sales manager; Mary has always had a passion for serving people– customers and employees alike. She is thrilled to turn her love of service into action by becoming the customer advocate and being there for our customers every step of the way.
This new role gives Mary the opportunity to put the customer as the number one priority and ensure satisfaction from start to finish. There couldn’t be a better fit for Mary at .decimal and we can’t wait to see the amazing work she will do as the new CCO!
ConGRADulations to our 2020 Seminole State Graduates Dani Hass and Ben Henry! .decimal is SO proud to recognize them and their incredible achievements. They have exemplified the .decimal core values of being committed to excellence and demonstrating continuous improvement. The choices they have made now to pursue higher education will impact their future success in a big way!
We started off March as businesses as usual — for the most part. The lingering news stories of COVID-19 traveling the world made us furrow our brows as we talked about it in the break room, but we had no idea that by the end of March we would go from working normally to completely modifying how we operated. COVID-19 has changed the world, and with it, .decimal has taken precautions and measures to ensure that cancer patients are still treated with the best possible care amid an unprecedented time.
In February, we were awarded our AS9100 Certification which opens us up for aerospace work in the contract manufacturing part of the business. Having this certification gives .decimal a lot of new opportunities to explore.
As Committed to Excellence is one of our core values, some of the .decimal team, along with the owners of the company, went to Leadership Seminole’s 2020 Leadership Summit.
December 14, 2019, .decimal was 510K cleared to sell their highly-anticipated 3D scanner. This iPad app with a scanning camera allows for a full color, 3D, dimensionally accurate rendering of the patient treatment area, essentially allowing a radiation oncologist to scan the patient and order a custom radiation device built to the shape of the tumor within minutes.
Each year, Veterans Day is a chance for us to reflect on all of those who have served our amazing country, both in the past and in the present. .decimal would like to take this opportunity to spotlight two of our veterans and commend them in their suit to protect and defend us.
.decimal is located in Florida, which means that we are no stranger to hurricanes. Despite knowing how to prepare and making all the necessary precautions beforehand, there’s no telling what a storm will do to a community. That’s why we sprung into action when we heard about the destruction in the Bahamas.
Summer internships are a great opportunity to get experience and build your skillset. .decimal loves its interns and tries to have a range of them year-long. We wanted to recognize Nikhil, who interned on the product development team for his contribution to .decimal and for making it on Channel 6’s Getting Results segment.
Whether it’s fixing machines, checking the coolant, cleaning up spills, or even something as simple as replacing a lightbulb, our company wouldn’t be able to run without our maintenance team, and we’d like to thank them for their hard work!
Pursuing higher-level education is something that we are proud to recognize here at .decimal. It truly displays one of our core values: Committed to Excellence. For some people, college helps them decide where they want to go in life. But, for Shelby, she decided on her college path through working here.
.decimal has always participated in trade shows. We love the atmosphere, the opportunity to meet new people, and to see what’s going on in the industry. June held some of the biggest of the year and the months of preparing definitely paid off.
Let’s face it: finding a job you’re loyal to can be hard. We know that. But there’s always been something special about .decimal’s culture that welcomes employees to stay for a long time. That being said, we’d like to congratulate Linda M., Linda H., and Drew for reaching longevity milestones in the first half of 2019!
Sadly, Leg 4 of .decimal United is planned to be the last of the team building program. However, we have never had more motivation to make it the best one yet! To start off with a bang, .decimal headed to Locksmith Escape Games to tackle another escape room, and let me tell you, it was not a stroll in the woods!
It takes intrinsic motivation to always do what’s right, which is why it is another one of .decimal’s core values. To dedicate your time to your community and put others first is not commonly found, but something special. We’d like to showcase Henry and Ricky for being committed to excellence and impacting not only .decimal but also the surrounding community. Congratulations to the both of you for graduating from Leadership Seminole!
Continuous improvement is a critical .decimal core value. It’s something we encourage in all of our employees, and it’s always important to us to celebrate those who go the extra mile and integrate that core value within their day to day lives. This time, we’d like to congratulate Savannah from graduating with her Associate of Arts degree from Seminole State College of Florida!!
The Future Focus Group is a new committee of college students representing the youngest minds of .decimal.
Leg 3 of the .decimal United Race concluded at the end of March with a company picnic. The fun-filled day including volleyball, wiffleball, BBQ, and cake, all to celebrate the hard work and bonding that happened over the course of the quarter.
It’s always a blast seeing our customers, friends, and colleagues at conferences. The AAPM 2019 Spring Meeting was no exception.
In support of International Women’s Day, we thought we would get together and show our “girl power”. While manufacturing is a predominately male sector, it is great to know that, as women, we are able to contribute to the success of our great company!
These incredible, strong, and admirable women are a huge backbone to .decimal and we would like to appreciate them by celebrating International Women’s Day.
Let’s hear it for women in the workplace!!
Here at .decimal, we recognize employees are multi-faceted and always encourage our core values here at work, but also at home and in everyday life. We’d like to commend Dawson for being committed to excellence and always doing the right thing through his volunteer work within the community.
The one thing .decimal always strives to do is bond and make strong connections with each other, whether that means spending lunch, afternoons and nights, or even weekends with one another. This month, a few .decimal employees participated in a golf tournament, held in the honor of Eustis High School’s head baseball coach, David Lee.
Nathalia is a remarkable little girl who’s creativity has not only inspired the Love Your Melon family, but also touched our hearts here at .decimal.
In the tradition and spirit of the .decimal United program, we spent the fundraising element collecting and donating non-perishable food items for the homeless this holiday season.
The .decimal Christmas Party is one of the most exciting days that we, as a company, look forward to. From dancing to drinking, mingling, and good food, the .decimal Christmas Party is always a massive hit among all employees.
The holidays are always a special time at .decimal, from the food, to decorations, to family. There’s always a sense of togetherness that comes from this time of year. Further it’s a time we get to reflect on who we are and what we do. Halloween, however, was never a day that .decimal went all out for… until this year when we decided to tie in the Halloween spirit in with our .decimal United race.
.decimal is always conscious of our ultimate mission: helping cancer patients–which is why October is such an important month to all of us!
It doesn’t have to be November for there to be turkeys among the .decimal team! The next challenge in the .decimal United Race was a bowling competition in September.
Putting our core value of Continuous Improvement into practice, a few members of the manufacturing team had the opportunity to attend the International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago this month!
.decimal would like to congratulate Linda’s husband and Justin’s dad, Captain Ben “Pete” Moon on his retirement from the City of Deland Police Department!!
Communication and learning how to effectively work together as a team are two of the biggest challenges any company will face. These vital keys to business success are the major initiatives behind the .decimal United team competition.
Where’s the best place to practice, you may ask? A dark, locked room and one hour on the clock, of course!
Continuous improvement isn’t just a .decimal core value because it’s important for work; it is something encouraged in all parts of life, including employee’s personal and professional life. We’d like to congratulate David Jr. for graduating with his Associate of Arts degree. Further, we’d like to congratulate Linda’s daughter, Summer, for continuing her education with PA school.
One of the most amazing things about .decimal is the journey we’ve had to get where we are today. After 32 years, we’ve been lucky and thankful to have a great team pushing us forward, and we wanted to recognize those individuals for their dedication and excellence while they’ve been employed at .decimal.
To close the first leg of .decimal United, we hosted a picnic for employees, family and friends to celebrate what we’ve all accomplished over the past 90 days. It was filled with celebration, many laughs, amazing food, and great memories.
As a part of the .decimal United program, the four teams competed in an Animal Shelter Donation Drive to see who collected the most items to be donated. Not only was it a great competition, it also had a greater purpose for the community.
Continuous improvement has long been something that is key to our success at .decimal, so much so that it is one of our 4 core values! Improving our products, our service, and even our employees are part of our everyday life.
With that said, we’d like to congratulate Daniel for graduating with his Bachelors of Science from the University of Central Florida!!
Recently, .decimal was one of the lucky vendors at the biggest proton therapy conference in the world. Not only was it an amazing week at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, but it also showcased the worldwide introduction to ASTROID, .decimal’s new proton-based treatment planning system.
Congratulations to our new hire, Gavin, for passing his IHK German Apprenticeship Certification exam!

One of the .decimal core values is “Continuous Improvement” and it is always great to see employees living out our core values, both inside the company and out! One of the ways they can achieve this is through furthering their education and accreditation.
When December hits, the holiday fun begins and the .decimal family always finds the best ways to celebrate another safe and successful year.
Our employees are multidimensional and multitalented, both at work and at home. Here at .decimal, Jim Selikoff works in software development, but his passion outside of work started at five years old with his first violin lesson. His dream of making a career out of music began when he played saxophone in a soul band in high school.
Thanksgiving always brings good times and good eating. At .decimal, we host an annual potluck lunch to commemorate and reflect what we’re thankful for during the holiday season.
At .decimal, we are committed to making a difference in the lives of our patients, as well as in our community.
