Bennett’s Trip to Bradford White

This past June, Raven was excited to have one its team members, Bennett Lee, attend the Bradford-White Corporate (BWC) Convention as part of the Niles Steel Tank delegation.

In addition to excellent training seminars, BWC pulled out all the stops to welcome over 2000 attendees to historic Philadelphia, site of the signing of the American Declaration of Independence & United States Constitution. The event both honored the company’s past 25 years and renewed its commitment to future success alongside its partner rep firms.

President Bush was the honored guest at the Convention, speaking about life before and after presidency. As well as his most current initiative, to help Veterans. Bennett received this great book “Portraits of Courage” by George W. Bush, filled with inspiring stories from Veterans and a collection of oil paintings.

From Niles, Raven was excited to hear of the following developments;

Besides the festivities and fun of the convention, Bennett was excited to visit historic sites in and around downtown Philadelphia and hopes again to attend the next BWC Convention!


Niles in the Interior

Brian and Ashley headed out on the road again this time on an Interior BC tour checking out a few job sites and visiting customers before the snow starts to fly! With recently taking on the Niles Steel Tank line we have been pleasantly surprised at the response we have seen from our customers. Above you can see a picture of one of 3 very large Niles tanks provided to the Penticton Hatchery. A new facility that will be home to 2-3 hundred thousand Sockeye at a time. These tanks are covered in our R-16 spray on foam insulation.

We also recently supplied a few specialty stainless steel storage tanks to the Penticton Hospital. This was a great show of just how custom our Niles tanks can get. These had to be horizontal and all fittings rotated to the top of the tank to make clearances (the guys on site didn’t think they would make it in, it was close!) The tanks were 316L SS & passivated for an extended warranty. When we went to the site, the tanks weren’t in place, however, the concrete pads were just about set & ready for the switchover.
