WVCO has been all over the map these days!
This has been a very busy Spring for Willamette Valley Company! Delegates from our Railroad, Wood Products and Concrete divisions have been traveling across the globe meeting with familiar and new faces as they presented WVCO solutions and products.
From Atlanta to London…from Portland to Hannover……and finally on to Coronado, California…we are so thrilled to be a part of these leading industry events! Here is a summary of the places where WVCO has appeared so far:
April 23rd-25th, 2013 Portland, Oregon
WVCO began it’s “world tour” just up I-5 in Portland, Oregon when our representatives from our concrete division exhibited at The Pacific Northwest Bridge Inspectors Conference. Our reps had the opportunity to meet directly with bridge inspectors and managers from around the country and demonstrated how they can utilize our concrete repair products in bridge restoration projects. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the conference in Portland!
April 27th to May 1st, 2013: Atlanta, GA
Members from our Railroad Division team flew to Atlanta, Georgia for the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association Annual Convention. This is the railroad industry’s premier education and networking event and we were thrilled to present our products, including SpikeFast. This convention was particularly meaningful this year as it marked ASLRRA’s 100th anniversary!
April 30th-May 2nd, 2013 London, England
Members from our Railroad Division also flew across the “pond” to exhibit our products and at the Railtex 2013 Exhibition in London. Railtex is the UKs leading showcase for products and services for all sectors of the rail market in the UK. It is held biennially and has successfully served the industry for 20 years. Being given the opportunity to be Keynote speakers at the Railtex 2013, paid for the trip. The UK rail markets new exposure to SpikeFast was received wholeheartedly compared to their current repair methods. We are very excited to follow up on the numerous leads from the UK, Poland, Sri Lanka and the Baltic States.
