May Recap

Where did this month go?  It seems just yesterday that it was April.  At the end of each month, we dedicate a blog entry just to recap what’s gone on with EXAIR during the month.

Well after Kirk Edwards and I shamelessly used our children for blog entries in April, we left them out of it for May, which had to be a relief to our families.

Here’s a quick recap of May’s events:

May – 2010

May 1 – Visit from our distributor in Singapore

May 13 – We announced that our Chip Trapper was chosen as a finalist for a Design News “Golden Mousetrap” award (in addition to Plant Engineering “Product of the Year”)

May 14 – Two new EXAIR Super Air Nozzles in PEEK became available

May 17 – EXAIR Air Knives, Air Wipes and Air Amplifiers became CE compliant

May 19 – Visit from our distributor in Denmark

May 28 – We posted our first ever tribute to fallen military veterans for Memorial Day on our Facebook page, including a couple of mentions that are personal for employees at EXAIR

Also in May, we began stocking filter bags with different micron ratings for our award-winning Chip Trapper.

Professor Penurious was curiously quiet in May, but we expect that to change in June.

And we’d be remiss without mentioning that the last episodes of 24 (apparently fictional characters can now influence elections) and Lost (no, we don’t know what the numbers mean either) aired this month .

And of course the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico (come on, BP!) dominated the news.

As you can see, it’s been another very busy month.  We are working hard every day, every week and every month to give customers the information, products and services that they need to save money, save time and improve their operations.

June shapes up to be just as busy as April and May.  Two more international distributors are set to visit EXAIR and yet another round of new products announcements are coming up.

Stay tuned for more news.  You can catch the latest on Twitter at
