On Tuesday, March 27, our Clow Valve facility located in Oskaloosa, Iowa hosted a tour of the metal casting operation for local high school seniors enrolled in industrial technology courses. Maintenance mechanic B.J. Bowie conducted the tour. The students were particularly interested in learning more about careers, types of jobs and skills needed to work in advanced manufacturing as well as opportunities available in skilled trades.
Clow Valve welcomes any opportunities to show the future workforce our state-of-the-art facilities and educate them about the potential career opportunities that are available in manufacturing and skilled trades.

Canada Pipe and Clow Canada team members recently bid a fond farewell to Kathy Senior who retired after 38 years. Kathy’s career has been an evolution of sorts. She began her career in July 1980 with Stanton Pipe as secretary to the Treasurer. When Stanton was purchased by Canron in 1985, Kathy transferred to the Sales Department where she also served as the Personnel Manager. In 1989, her career took another turn when she became the secretary for the Vice-President General Manager at Canada Pipe. When Clow Canada later joined offices with Canada Pipe, Kathy continued to work as administrative assistant and handle payroll and benefits for both companies.
Kathy is looking forward to spending time working in her gardens but first she has two weddings to attend this summer. In fact, she will be traveling over 3,000 km to a wedding in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada from Beamsville, Ontario, Canada on a motorcycle. Sounds like Kathy has lots of fun planned for her retirement years.
We wish Kathy best wishes for a long and happy retirement!
Speaking of the talents at Futurecom team member Milos Rankovic and not to be outdone, Clow Corona production supervisor, Jose Martinez, also created a new company sign. This sign was made with a stainless-steel plate and back lit with LED lighting. It is now proudly displayed on the exterior of the facility in Corona, California to welcome customers and guests as they drive through the front gates. Jose is currently working on a smaller display sign for the sales office.
Thanks, Jose, for your time and creativity in making this beautiful sign!
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.
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.
