Pump expert discusses importance of industry-millwright connections

In the video above, pump expert Randal Therman tells why millwrights and their knowledge are important and why people throughout the pump industry need to be connecting with the millwright workforce. “These are the people who get things done,” Therman says.

The SSMRC will be sponsoring and sending representatives to the Empowering Pumps & Industry Conference (#EPIC2022) that Therman mentions. The conference will be held Nov. 14-15 in Pasadena, Texas. Conference host Empowering Pumps & Equipment also is collaborating with the SSMRC on an open house at the Houston training center on Nov. 14.

This video was filmed at the Turbomachinery & Pump Symposia held Sept. 13-15 in Houston and hosted by the Turbomachinery Laboratory at Texas A&M University. The SSMRC sponsored the event, and council representatives ran a booth where they talked with potential industry partners about the benefits of using our workforce. “This is one of the best shows for the millwright industry, hands down,” said James Rowland, who attended the symposia and is director of the SSMRC’s Western Region.
