Well, October’s here. Temperatures are starting to dip, and I noticed the other day that, when they hit about 70F, there were a lot of folks sporting hoodies, sweaters, and light jackets. A friend pointed out that these might be the same people who, back in the spring, broke out the t-shirts and shorts at the first sign of 70 degree days. At first glance, it might seem odd that people would dress so differently when it was the same temperature outside, just because of the earth’s relative position to the sun. But if you think about it, it’s not really that hard to be comfortable in 70 degree weather, no matter what you’re wearing. In fact, there are others (like me) who continue wearing t-shirts and shorts as long as we can, clinging to those last vestiges of summertime.
No; it’s not about the current temperature; it’s about anticipation of what’s coming. Those hoodies will soon be replaced (or relegated to under-layering for) heavy coats or parkas. And come spring, they’ll go back in the closet until autumn rears its head again.
At EXAIR, anticipation of what’s coming is key to our operations, and our success. Production and Purchasing are always looking ahead, to ensure that we maintain inventory levels so we can ship almost any catalog product, same day. Application Engineers continually record information on applications that we might not currently offer an ideal solution for. Design Engineers take that information, and, in cooperation with Management, develop these ideas into viable new products for next year’s catalog.
This weekend, we’re celebrating EXAIR’s success in doing this for 30 years, with a big company bash on a river cruise. I feel confident that I can speak for everyone else here when I say we’re looking forward to the next 30 years of success, by providing you the best possible solutions to your compressed air application needs.
