Clow Valve Hosts Foundry Tour For Local Students

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.

Clow Corona’s Got Talent, Too!

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!

Clow Valve Company Donates Historical Brass Sign Holders

If you want to know how and why a community is the way it is today, you have to look at its history. The Oskaloosa, Iowa community made the decision to display historical markers throughout the city to showcase the history of the buildings throughout the entire town. Unfortunately, they only had a $100 budget per marker so they relied heavily on local businesses and residents to contribute to the project.
Clow Valve was pleased to have the opportunity to donate the brass sign holders. The first marker was placed at the Oskaloosa Fire Department which was built in 1909.

McWane products have a large presence at Walt Disney World

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.
