At least it was last week when VMA President Bill Sandler visited several VMA manufacturing members in Cincinnati. And the clear, sunny skies echoed the news he received as the four valve manufacturing companies revealed they are seeing the continued strong sales that began in 2011.
“If you look at our 2012 Valve Shipments forecast, which was prepared around Feb. 1, it’s clear we have been expecting a good year,” said Sandler. “And that appears to be playing out as we talk to more and more members—not just in Cincinnati, but around the country—who are confirming strong sales and, in some cases, order backlogs.”
The companies that Sandler visited during his trip to the Queen City included Richards Industries, A-T Controls, Crane ChemPharma Flow Solutions and The Wm. Powell Company.
