2015 was a busy year for PT Coupling. We’ve been traveling to trade shows, giving back to the community, and of course manufacturing the best quick connect/disconnect fittings on the market today. The end of the year is a nice time to look back at the past year and reflect on all that we’ve done.
Our family owned company continues to bring new and innovative products to our customers. This year we traveled to many events to exhibit and network with the industries we serve. Our busy calendar had us setting out to the NAHAD Convention and the NTTC Expo in April, the Pacific Oil Conference in September, the annual PEI Convention/NACS tradeshow in October, and the National Tank Truck Carriers’ “Tank Truck Week” and the “Clean Gulf Show” in November.
At all of these events we were able to demonstrate our outstanding products and help industry professionals troubleshoot and find solutions to many of their problems. We also had time to mingle with past customers and network with potential customers in a casual and entertaining setting. At PEI, for instance, we featured petroleum handling fittings and nozzles that are used in all stages of petroleum manufacturing, transportation, and logistics, as well as fuel transfer applications. Bringing our products to an exhibition allows us to reach a large audience with the same goals in mind.
While it is our mission to serve our customers and industries, we are also proud to support the communities in which we live, work, play and learn. In 2015, we contributed to the support of more than a dozen non-profit organizations. We are proud to be a leading community sponsor of the United Way, both at the corporate level and through our generous employee donations. We sponsor the Garfield Child Advocacy Center, March of Dimes, Salvation Army, Ambucs and all our areal schools. We are especially proud to be able to support Leonardo’s Discovery Children’s Museum capital campaign as this historical museum founded by astronaut Owen K. Garriott is undergoing an extensive renovation. Leonardo’s is an interactive science and art center for the children of the community. The fun learning opportunities enrich and inspire the lives of all the children who visit. We have been involved with the museum for many years and are working to ensure that it remains a vital resource in the community for years to come.
As this busy and exciting year comes to a close, we are already looking forward to the adventures we’ll have in 2016! We will keep you up-to-date on all of our activities and travels!
From the PT Coupling family to yours, we wish you a happy and safe holiday season!
