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.”
Every year, March 22 is dedicated to focusing attention on the importance of water. This year’s theme is “Nature for Water,” and explores nature-based solutions to water challenges we face in the 21st century.
McWane, Inc. is proud of the role our safe, strong and sustainable products play in bringing water to the world.
McWane Ductile has added a new calculator to the Ductile Iron Pipe Industry leading Pocket Engineer. The new HDD (Horizontal Directional Drill calculator will help utilities and engineers specify McWane Ductile Iron Pipe for the HDD applications. Check it out today.

Special thanks to Ken Rickvalsky for all his work on this project.
Christine Michaelidis, Sales Rep for McWane Ductile-Utah recently presented this framed copy of the Fall 2017 feature article from Modern McWane to Bert Weiss, Operations and Maintenance Manager, for the City of Hayward, California. Mr. Weiss (pictured left) actually wrote the article detailing the City’s efforts to replace an aging 30” AC transmission main with a new 30” ductile iron line supplied by McWane Ductile and sold through Ferguson Waterworks. Scott Silverthorn (pictured right) with Ferguson was instrumental in coordinating this project between McWane Ductile and the City of Hayward.
Due to the strength and durability of the material, the relative ease in which the pipe could be assembled, and the long term resiliency it will provide in an earthquake prone area, ductile iron pipe was without question the material of choice for the City of Hayward, and we thank Bert for sharing his story with us.
