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.”
U.S. Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa visited Clow Valve on April 30 as part of her 99 Counties tour. It was her first visit to Clow.
Senator Ernst met with GM Mark Willett and his team to discuss a variety of issues affecting Clow including work force development, trade, Buy American, and environmental regulations. After a tour Mark presented Senator Ernst with a miniature commemorative Clow hydrant to display in her Capitol Hill office.
At the recent valve & hydrant annual sales meeting (Clow, Kennedy, Kennedy PIV and M&H), they held an inspiring teambuilding event. They partnered with Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) to build wheelchairs. Because the group was so large, they were able to build nine wheelchairs that will be donated for use by veterans in the Phoenix, Arizona community.
As a part of the event, each group created a poster expressing their gratitude to the veterans for their service to our country. It was an amazing experience since the team has quite a few veterans of their own. It was the first time they’ve done something like this and they plan to make it a tradition.
