The end of 2009

This year has been a trying one for many people and companies including us. We have had some nice projects that we have worked on and business has not been as bad as most others we hear about.

As for all the talk about the “Going Green” movement, it hasn’t really amounted to much for us even though we offer a wide variety of products for cutting cost and conserving energy. Most just don’t seem to want to spend the money to save money, which is a bit strange to me.

Lets look at it this way:

Your home utilities cost you $3600.00 per year. Someone knocks on your door and offers to save you half on your utility bills ($1800) if you would pay him $500.00 right then, would you do it? If you didn’t you would be crazy! This year you would save $1300 and next year you would get a savings of $1800, what a great thing you have been offered.

The same thing goes for business but not many want to do it. Purchasing certain products for our places of business can result in great returns on investment yet most don’t take advantage of them. Just like training your people, you spend the money to send them to factory (and other) training hoping to get a return on that time and money with increased sales, no?

Enough about that.

We recently sent Madhu to Shreveport Louisiana to do some work on an oilrig. He found the problem and was able to get them back up the first day on site. The company is one we have done work for in the past. They use a 1500 horsepower VFC to run the hoist for the drill pipe on the rig. Needless to say, they were very happy to get back to work.

We started up some VFC’s we had built for the JC Penney’s building, which is part of the City Creek project in downtown Salt Lake. These were Siemens drives we built-up with bypass for Siemens and were sold through Codale in Salt Lake City.  They are running the air-handlers for climate control in the building.

The start-up is now complete on the Sandy City Granite Tank project, which is located just below the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon. This project has three 125 horsepower US Drives mounted in a Siemens Motor Control Center with other associated equipment.

We just completed the equipment for Herriman City’s new pipeline and tank project and also a big Siemens Motor Control Center for Timpanogas Special Services District for the Boat Harbor Lift Station. These projects will be installed over the coming weeks.

Please continue to check out the products that are listed on the site.  We have some new products that I am very excited about and we are adding things all the time.  If you need a manual for a product, it can be found under the specific vendor on the site.  If you find that it is not there, contact me and I will make sure and get it added.

Hopefully for all, 2010 will bring more hope and prosperity than this past year.  I tend to be a "Glass half full" person but it has been tough to keep that attitude in this ecomomy.  Things need to change for the better and I'm sure they will if we can better control our representitives.  It just takes a minute to email your Congressman or Senator and give them your opinion.  I do it all the time and if nothing else, it makes me feel better!  In the words of Jack Nicholson as the joker, “What this town needs…is an enema”. I think the country is in need of that but who am I to say. JMHO

Thanks to all of you that have supported us over the years.  We will continue to do our best to earn your business throughout the coming year.  By-the-way, this year is our tenth year.  We could not have made it here without you.

Thanks again,
