McWane Ergo Cup winner Clow Valve recently competed at the 19th Annual National Ergo Cup competition  held in Orlando, Florida, on March 21-24, 2016. The Clow Ergo Cup project, Hydrant Brass Torque Table, was one of 47 projects selected out of 88 applicants to compete at the national competition. Just to be selected to participate is an honor!

The Clow Team included representatives from Clow Corona (John Bouman*, Arturo Islas*, Rene Perez, and Alfonso Zamorano) and Clow Valve Oskaloosa (Chad Bollinger*, Kyle Huelsman*, Chris Prendergast*, and Chris Stanley). *Represented the team at the National Ergo-Cup Competition.

Team leader Chris Prendergast said, “The team did a great job and we received so much positive feedback all week. Based on several of the classes and other projects, I would remind everyone that simple low cost solutions are everywhere and we only need to identify a risk and then be creative to find them. We brought back several creative ideas we think we can implement and from my perspective a group of guys who were excited about finding the next improvement. Thanks for the opportunity to represent McWane at this year’s competition.”

The Disney Coronado Springs Hotel was beautiful venue, and they have announced that the 20th Conference will be held there again in March 2017.
