Whew! Short holiday weeks are nice, but there always seems to be more work than time available to do it. Around EXAIR, we have a saying for holiday weeks like this one. There’s still five days of work, but only four days to finish it.
Needless to say, it’s been another busy week here.
Yesterday, we introduced three new products. EXAIR now offers 110-gallon versions of our Reversible Drum Vac, Chip Vac, and Heavy Duty Dry Vac. These new “super sized” products join the larger version of our award-winning Chip Trapper that we introduced in August. You can see some information about them on our Facebook page. Full information will be available on our website in the coming days.
Even though the “official” date was over the weekend, we also helped Dave in accounting celebrate his 40th birthday yesterday. I’m sure he was saying to himself “with friends like these…”
Today we had a company-wide cookout to help show our appreciation to all EXAIR employees. It was a great time, and the weather could not have been better. I ended up eating lunch alongside Desmond from our assembly department and Randy from our quality group. Both of these guys were part of our EXAIR team that ran in the Redlegs 5K earlier this summer. Randy is an avid runner. He has a 10K race this weekend. Good luck to him this weekend!
Tomorrow we welcome our distributor from the Netherlands for training and business meetings over the next couple of days. We are glad that they made the trip to see us again.
And on Friday, we’ll début the next video featuring our own Professor Penurious. Will Des Moines ever be the same after his visit? Will any more engineering co-ops be set on fire? Stay tuned.
Since this week only has four working days (yeah, right I know I’ll be here on Saturday!), I will include Monday in this post. We’ll send out our latest press release on Monday, and as usual, it is another product available only from EXAIR.
And don’t forget that next week, several members of our team will be in Chicago for IMTS 2010. If you are going to be there and would like to arrange a meeting, please e-mail us.
You might think that would be enough for September, but we’ll only be halfway through by the middle of next week. There is still plenty more to come from EXAIR in September and beyond.
