Hydro-Dyne Engineering Hosts Plant Tour for Engineering and Supply Chain Societies
Hydro-Dyne Engineering recently hosted a professional development meeting and plant tour for a number of area professional societies to discuss a range of industry issues and introduce them to our process. More than 60 people from local chapters of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Society of Manufacturing Engineers, APICS (an organization for supply chain and operations management professionals) and select STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) students joined Hydro-Dyne at their 110,000 sq. ft. facility in Clearwater earlier this Spring.
After presentations and formal meetings, the group toured various departments of Hydro-Dyne’s manufacturing floor, including machining, welding, pickling, assembly and equipment testing.
“Supporting our engineering, manufacturing and supply chain communities is of utmost importance to our industry as a whole, and to our business,” said Christy Howard, Vice President, Hydro-Dyne. “We are blessed to be located in a wonderful community where extremely talented people choose to live, and we could not be more pleased to be a part of it.”
Attendees enjoyed the joint meeting and manufacturing plant tour. Said one, “I had no idea this is what was behind a flushed toilet!”
