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.
McWane India Private Limited (MIPL) valve and hydrant, machine tooling and Time Square teams located in Coimbatore, India celebrated National Safety Week on March 5-12, 2018. They kicked off the event with a safety flag raising led by MIPL Senior Vice President K. Shanmugham on March 5.
Several activities were planned for the week including special speeches by managers and shop floor team members on the importance of National Safety Week. During the week they held safety themed demonstrations, a vehicle emissions camp, safety training, and knowledge sharing with other industries. A total of 45 vehicles were tested at the Time Square location to insure they met the required environmental standards and an eye camp was conducted for 180 team members.
Team members competed for prizes for the best safety slogan and safety demonstration and best safety photo and drawing. Team members not only enjoyed themselves, but they learned lots of safety tips during the weeklong event.
