And the Plant Engineering Award Goes To…

EXAIR Corporation!…(chirp, chirp, silence, chirp)

EXAIR’s PEEK plastic Super Air Nozzle and PEEK plastic Nano Super Air Nozzle have won the Plant Engineering Product of the Year Award for 2010. The PEEK plastic nozzles offer features not found in other plastics. PEEK material is a great choice where thermal,chemical, and combustion properties are critical to performance. PEEK nozzles will operate up to temperatures of 320F (160C), PEEK is insoluble in all common solvents and extremely resistant to attack by a very wide range of organic and inorganic chemicals. PEEK also offers excellent wear and abrasion resistance.

No red carpet, no flashbulbs, no fans (but feel free to LIKE our Facebook page), no televised presentation, no thanking all the collaborators, no after-party. But we do get this nifty logo for being a winner:

The Plant Engineering Product of the Year Award is voted on by the readers of the Plant Engineering magazine and EXAIR has received the award for three years straight, and six of the past nine years. The other three years EXAIR was a finalist. In fact EXAIR has won a product or engineering award 13 times in the past 14 years. We are unaware of any other company who can say this. It is  proof of our constant product development cycles and regular introduction of new products into the market.

We really prefer to think of our sidewalk up to our front door as the red carpet. The fancy lights the marketing department uses for product images could pass for flash bulbs in a pinch. We rely upon you to play the role of fans and owe the majority of our success to your loyalty and business (we will make sure you can continue to rely on us). We do have some “televised” presentations – check out our product videos. And I must say EXAIR does thank its collaborators (EXAIR employees) in a number of ways; EXAIR’s president and CEO have personally cooked us lunch a number of times – where do you think we learned about providing top-notch service? EXAIR also provides a summer picnic and winter holiday celebration for any who care to take part, including our families. And this year we have heard about our very first after-party – who cares if they are trying to disguise it as another product development meeting…

Thanks to all of you for contributing to our latest award.
