Giant valve company keeps busy in down economy

原文:
WOODLAND, Wash. -- A Woodland company has created one of the world's largest valves: It's 34-feet tall, 11 feet wide and weighs 52,000 pounds - and it may open the flood gates for more work funded by federal economic stimulus dollars. The valve fits a 96-inch diameter pipe for a Chicago storm and wastewater treatment plant. The end-product proved so massive, the company rented a "90-ton crane to lift it up to get it on the truck" when it was shipped recently, said Robert Nye, operations manager for Lined Valve Company Inc. The humongous pipe-stopper - made of carbon and stainless steel - is the third of its kind trucked this year from the Woodland company to Chicago. Lined Valve received about $1.5 million for the valves, which are part of a project Chicago is paying for with municipal funds, Nye said. Lined Valve Co. had a competitive edge in landing the project because it's one of the few custom valve manufacturers to use American-made materials and not outsource labor overseas. The company is remaining busy with regular projects but expects stimulus funds to help too. "As time goes on we are absolutely expecting activity for these stimulus funds jobs are going to ratchet up considerably," Nye said. It's work that kept the 25-employee operation running steady in an otherwise sluggish economy, said company president Jeffrey Bowman. This is the first year the company hasn't grown since it opened in 1995, he said. It could take a few years for Lined Valve to start hiring on more employees, but Bowman sees plenty of growth potential. Cities across America, particularly expanding communities and urban areas with aging infrastructure, will need valves for sewer and water systems, he said.
