AB&I team member Jenny Landon spotted this Clow hydrant at Jack London Square while attending the Oakland Military Institute’s annual luncheon.
Tyler Union team member Mark Vess recently took his family on a vacation to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida to celebrate his wife Ashley’s birthday. They made it a game to see how many McWane products they could spot while there. As you can see, there were lots to see.
Aleah and Allison Vess (top left L-R) spotted a Tyler Union Flange 90 Bend and a Clow Valve hydrant at Hollywood Studios. Aleah Vess (top right) found a Tyler Union Flange Tee and a Kennedy Valve hydrant at Epcot. Alec Vess (bottom left) found a Clow hydrant with a Walt Disney logo on it at the Art of Animation Disney Resort and Mark (bottom right) located a similar Clow hydrant in the Magic Kingdom.
Mark said, “It was good to see so many McWane products at each of the parks.”
Mark joined Tyler Union in Anniston, Alabama in 2004 and is a Technical Sales Support Specialist in the Engineering Department. He can now add record holding McWane product spotter in one location to his resume.
Bibby Ste-Croix President Tom Leonard was invited to be a presenter at the recent Intersec meeting held on January 20-22, 2018 in Dubai, UAE. Intersec is the leading trade fair for safety, security and fire protection. Tom spoke to attendees about the advantages of using cast iron pipe with respect to ease of installation and no requirement or need for difficult fire stopping systems.
Clow Canada held their annual sales meeting in Saint John, New Brunswick the week of January 22. A regular agenda item for these meetings is a charity event that doubles as a team building experience. This year was no exception. The sales team volunteered to make sandwiches at the Romero House to put in children’s lunch bags for the following school day. The Romero House is a soup kitchen that was founded in Saint John in 1982 that serves free meals and provides food hampers and housewares to those in need 365 days a year, including Christmas day.
In lieu of a dinner out that evening, the day was topped off by the team presenting the money they would have spent going out to dinner at a restaurant as a donation to the Romero House. Take out food that night never tasted better!
The Clow Canada Sales team had a great time and came away knowing they had made a difference for those in need in the Saint John community.
