Cool Product Sighting at Waterwork Specialties

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!
