Past Events

  • Thursday, November 20th
    Stainless Valve Company – Monroe, N.C.

    Speakers Gift

    Phil Jones presents Speakers Gift to Dirk A. Lindenbeck, Chairman Stainless Valve Company

    We met at Fuddruckers in Southeast Charlotte for dinner and brief presentation by Dirk A. Lindenbeck, Chairman of the Board of Stainless Valve Company.

    After dinner and Speaker’s presentation, we drove to their plant in Monroe for a tour of their facilities where they have been designing and manufacturing quality valves for over 33 years. (Slide gate valves, O-port gate valves or through port valves). Used by Pulp Manufactures, Biomass Industry, Chemical Industry, Food Industry, Power Generation, Mining Industry and others. They also supply machined components, small and large specialty machine parts, assemblies, and electric automation controls.

    Several of those attending had not joined our Group previously and the number of younger Engineers was noticeable. Much of the machinery and tooling at the plant is very modern and up to date.
