Jeff and Ian returned from the 2010 Pipelines Show in Keystone, Colorado last Thursday. The Show had incredible attendance, packed technical sessions and the venue was spectacular. Many conference attendees, from all facets of the pipeline industry, stopped by LifeLast’s booth for a chance to learn more about our corrosion protection systems. We sat in on the presentation of the Pima County Interconnect Project presented by Jaime Rivera, Pima County, Chris Lucie, Brown and Caldwell, Shah Rahman and William Ast, Northwest Pipe Company. It was a great presentation on the benefits of polyurethane lined and coated WSP in wastewater applications. The gondola ride and dinner at the top of Keystone on Tuesday was a memorable event that again was very well attended. The conference was wrapped up with the golf tournament at Keystone Ranch and our team was strong and took home the hardware thanks to stellar play by John Bambei, Denver Water and Larry Swim, Northwest Pipe Company-Denver. It was great to meet all of you during the show, we look forward to seeing you all in Seattle next year!
We are gearing up for the 2010 Pipelines conference in Keystone, Colorado. We really enjoyed last years show in San Diego and are looking forward to exhibiting again this year. If you are interested in the show you can find information at ASCE.org or if you are attending, stop by our booth and say hello.
Jeff and I got back last week from the ACE ’10 show in Chicago. Jeff was in town a few days early to chair the Coatings and Linings Committee for SWPMTAC where a lot of productive work was accomplished. The conference was very well attended and we had the opportunity to catch up with some old industry friends and make a few new ones.
Congratulations to Travis Moore, our newest Technical Services Representative. Travis joined us earlier this year in a production capacity and when we realized a technical support need, Travis was one of the first we turned too. He will represent LifeLast extremely well as he hits the road to work with our partners in the industry. His primary role will be to support applicators and project start-ups. Later this year he will be taking his NACE Coating Inspector Level 1 Certification Course. Good luck Travis and congratulations on your promotion!
