CASE STUDIES

If you read the President's letter, it becomes quite clear that what separates Power Product Technologies from their competitors, is PPT’s desire to take on large projects with insurmountable obstacles, and deliver the solution to the customer on time. The following is an example of Power Product Technologies' under promising, and over delivering. It is PPT's “Can-Do” attitude that makes them such a force in the distribution industry!

Three Pumps in cages Power Product Technologies recently supplied six Plicord Water Suction & Discharge hoses to help residents of the Denver, Colorado area battle drought. The hoses are being used to pump water from the Chatfield Dam, whose water is not typically used for drinking to the Marsten Dam reservoir eight miles away.

When a Denver suburb, was facing the dilemma of how to get water from one area to another in response to ongoing drought conditions, they turned to Power Product Technologies and Goodyear hose for the answer.

The drought that continues to plague residents of Denver and surrounding communities forced state officials to devise a way to channel water from the Chatfield Dam, whose water is not typically used for drinking, to the Marsten Dam reservoir eight miles away. The project began in October 2002 and was only recently completed.

Giant Pumps were ordered to make the transfer of the water from one site to the other, but hoses were still needed to move the water. The chief engineer on the project insisted that only Goodyear hoses be used to get the job done.

According to Tim West, Goodyear Technical Manager, Goodyear supplied six Plicord Water Suction & Discharge hoses for the project.

"This was a hurry-up project because the water had to be pumped from the Chatfield Dam within a very short time frame due to potential freezing conditions," he said.

According to West the distance between the two dams is about eight miles.

The chief engineer said "I'd really like to thank Goodyear for a timely delivery of the hose, especially on a project with such a tight deadline."

"Cooperation and a 'can-do' attitude from our local distributor [Power Product Technologies, Inc], marketing and factory personnel brought the product to Denver in record time to pair up with the pumps," West said.

"The project started and completed 'on time' and secured valuable drinking water for the upcoming year of even greater anticipated drought for the region. It was a job well done by all involved."
