Biennially, ASPE presents the prestigious Industry Award to companies that have provided outstanding service to the advancement of plumbing engineering technology. This year, ASPE is pleased to present Industry Awards to McWane Inc. and QuantumFlo.
“The support that both companies have given in time, education, and resources to this Society in recent years has been exceptional,” says Thomas P. Sharp, ASPE’s Vice President, Affiliate. “Although it is always tough for ASPE to narrow down the award selection process to only two companies, both are very deserving of this honor in every criteria.”
The McWane Plumbing Group is part of the McWane, Inc. group of companies. The Plumbing Group manufactures cast iron soil pipe and fittings, no-hub couplings, and drains. Headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, McWane is a global manufacturer of ductile iron products and is one of the world’s most important suppliers of waterworks and monitoring products.
“We are honored to receive the Industry Award from ASPE, and we look forward to future opportunities where we can serve the engineering community,” says Francesca Dunbar, Vice President of Marketing for the McWane Plumbing Group. “We are always looking for opportunities where we can support ASPE’s efforts, from sponsorships to the development of continuing education content.”
Founded in 2007, QuantumFlo is a world leader in pumping and pump control system technologies and an innovator of sizing and selection applications and rules for variable-speed pumping.
