The results are in for 2012. Wazee Electric has qualified as one of Xcel Energy’s top performing trade allies for the Commercial – Industrial Energy Efficiency Programs based on number of projects, rebate dollars and kWh savings. There were only 32 trade partners who qualified for the award this year. Read more about our energy efficiency efforts. We’d like to recognize the entire electrical team for making this happen. They are the best team in the business and each and every one on the team sells drives (and rebates) to our customers. Congratulations team!
Wazee Crane recently completed a project in Wyoming for cranes at a tube mill facility. The building is a new build, and Wazee was chosen as their overhead crane supplier due to our reputation and our ability to service the cranes we sold after initial installation. The cranes are critical to their operation and our ability to have technicians available to them 24-7 (only 90 minutes away) was very important. The project consisted of 6 overhead bridge cranes from 10 ton to 30 ton capacity with spans up to 90 feet. The cranes are CMAA Class D Heavy Service. They are remote controlled and include variable speed controls for all motions. In addition, we are also providing several lifting beams to assist in their ability to lift long bundles of finished product.
Some of our staff recently visited Timken Headquarters in Canton, OH as well as the bearing repair facility in Union, South Carolina and the motor shop for the newest member of the Timken family, Smith Services in West Virginia. The trip allowed for productive and informative joint meetings between H&N and Wazee managers with Timken and Smith Services associates.
Congratulations to Dorje from our Wind division on his safe return from his 17th Summit of Mount Everest. We commend you for your accomplishments and welcome you back home!
Summer Driving Safety Tips Driving safety tips are applicable all year round. But in the summer there are some special safety issues that should be kept in mind.
• Watch out for children & pedestrians on the road. With summer more people will be riding bikes, playing in the street, or walking.
• Pay attention to stress and fatigue. Summer heat and traffic delays can make you feel more tired and less alert.
• Look out for road construction and detours as most road construction takes place during the summer.
• Get your car tuned and serviced.
• Change belts and hoses. Heat and humidity can deteriorate rubber.
• Maintain optimum tire pressure. Low tire pressure is dangerous and your car use more gas.
• Keep drinks and snacks in your car on long trips.
• On long trips take rest stops more frequently.
• Keep a first aid kit in your car.
