FEATURED ONLINE ARTICLE

Success is a Family Affair

When Randy Cowart became president, CEO and chairman of The Wm. Powell Company, he assumed the mantle of only eight predecessors. In an age when companies change presidents more frequently than burger chains come out with new offerings, it was refreshing to speak with a man who is only the ninth president of a company that has endured for 167 years, a company that was also one of the founding members of the Valve Manufacturers Association.

The importance of continuity cannot be overstated, according to Cowart. He said, “We have a great succession plan, and I think that’s important for the long term success of a company. It is essential when building relationships in the industry. That means you know your customers well, service them well and make good products. If you live and die on doing the right thing every day for your employees and your customers in spite of better times/worse times, you will remain successful. You’ll be around despite things like wars, fires and floods.”  MORE

Finding the Source of All That Noise

Processing plants today do everything they can to increase efficiency and productivity. Frequently, that involves operating at higher temperatures, pressures and flow rates, which means higher pressure differentials across critical control valves as well other conditions that generate more noise. While this noise has always been a problem, it is even more so in today’s high-throughput processing plants. MORE
