While in Minneapolis, MN last month to attend the NFPA Regional Meeting, Eric Lanke, Lynn Beyer and I had the opportunity to drive up to St. Paul to visit longtime NFPA member company SafeWay Hydraulics, Inc. SafeWay is a division of Specialty Manufacturing Company specializing in the design, manufacturing and worldwide distribution of quick action couplings in the industrial, construction, Ag and mobile equipment markets.
SafeWay has been a member of NFPA for 38 years and will join us again in 2017 as an IFPE exhibitor in Las Vegas. During our visit, NFPA gave a brief synopsis of the association activities and suggested that the SafeWay marketing team might find value in getting involved with the NFPA Stats programs. Safeway shared their concern about workforce development and their interest in getting involved in some of the NFPA workforce activities.
Thank you Mark Lynch, national sales manager, Paul Nelson, business development manager, Dennis Johnson, director of engineering and Nick Goenner, engineering manager for your hospitality. We look forward to seeing you at the IFPE exhibitor meeting in August and at a future NFPA event.
