We are so proud and thrilled to announce that the Manchester Tank Elkhart (MTE) team entry was chosen as the winner of the 2014 Ergo Cup award at the National Ergo Cup Competition held in Orlando, Florida! MTE’s project for the competition was a new two piece paint hook system that significantly reduced the risk of a repeat injury and reduced thread leaks during the washing process by more than 69%. This new process eliminated the need to triple handle 570 cylinders, 42,750 pounds over a nine month period.

Over 40 companies nationwide participated in this year’s competition.

This is McWane’s second first place winner at the National Ergo Cup Competition. Clow Valve won in 2008 for their innovative entry that required them to re-think how fire hydrants were assembled.

Congratulations to the MTE Team!!
