McWane Ductile Ohio team member Cory Humphreys spotted this Amerex wheeled fire extinguisher in front of a huge Air Force cargo plane at the Dayton Air Show this past weekend. Cory said, “I love seeing the McWane products in different places.” Also pictured is Cory’s daughter, Meagan (both current day and 8 years ago) and his son, Kolby, who is posing behind the Memphis Belle.
The flying show featured performances by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, the Tuskegee Airmen P-51 Mustang, the U. S. Army Golden Knights and several other amazing talented groups.
It’s common to spot a Manchester Tank 20 lb. LP Gas Grill Cylinder because they are a product widely used on propane grills. Tony Patton, Engineering Services Manager at Manchester Tank (MTE) Bedford spotted this pair of Manchester Tank 420 lb. Steel DOT Vertical LP Gas Cylinders in service at the Quick Lube in Bedford, Indiana. They were manufactured at MTE’s Petersburg, Virginia facility. Today, these cylinders are manufactured at the Manchester Tank facility located in Quincy, Illinois.
Clow Valve team member Richard Ledesma, Jr. spotted this on Instagram, “Our Model 2065 protecting a Galaxy far, far away . . . I mean Long Beach, California.”
AB&I team members Jennifer Grundell and her dad, Alfredo Costa recently spotted pipe produced at AB&I while on their family vacation in the Golden State of California at Universal Studios Hollywood, a film studio and theme park located in Los Angeles.
While over in the Lone Star State of Texas, Clow Valve team member James Banicky spotted this Clow hydrant in Dealey Plaza by the book depository in Dallas, Texas where significant evidence of a sniper was found following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
James said, “It’s nice to see that our products are trusted enough to help preserve things that have such a great impact on our great country even to this day.”
There were three McWane product sightings recently by Paula Hoffman, Francesca Dunbar and Billy Ngiraikelau.

Clear across the county at Seascape in Aptos, California, AB&I team member Billy Ngiraikelau (pictured top left) also spotted a Clow hydrant and Francesca Dunbar (pictured bottom right) spotted an M&H hydrant when she surprised her friend for her birthday with a trip to Snoqualmie Falls Park in Snoqualmie, Washington.

From time to time we get an unusual McWane product sighting. CJ Fowler, the McWane Ductile sales representative for Southern Illinois, East Iowa and some parts of Missouri had one of those sightings last week while making sales calls.
CJ came across something a little different but really cool at one of our distributors, Waterwork Specialties in Bonne Terre, Missouri. Waterwork used McWane Ductile iron pipe as pillars, on the front of their shop.
We must say those are the best-looking pillars we’ve ever seen!
Spotted: A Clow Valve Company hydrant outside of the Escape Root Juicery on Main Street in Dunedin, Florida.
AB&I retired Shipping Supervisor David Janney and his wife spotted this Clow hydrant at the Presidio overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California. He and his wife live close by and enjoy the beautiful view from this spot.
Although David is officially retired, he does stop by AB&I from time to time to help out and visit with old friends.
On a recent family trip to Southern California, AB&I team member of 39 years Isaac Beltran spotted AB&I pipe in the parking garage of a Holiday Inn Express. Isaac works in the Pipe Finishing Department at AB&I.
