June and July Update: Gearing Up For The Big Bang.
Summer months are no excuse for dilly-dallying and our construction never stood still! The final big push is coming in the fourth quarter of this year and time is “a-ticking”! From the big details to the smallest, everything is coming together with a cohesiveness that is remarkable. We are starting to see substantial changes that only serve to fuel our team’s enthusiasm! Let’s take a quick peak at what these two months had in store for us…
Oh, and by the way, we now have the official name for our new home which is named in memory of Prof. Sam Luxton, co-founder of Dadanco, and John Reed, founder of Mestek Inc., ‘The Luxton Reed Center’.
Further announcements, on the change of address and etc., will be made at the appropriate time.
Final internal excavation nears completion and the rumor going around for some time was that this would be an indoor Jacuzzi with a swimming pool. Great idea and what style…
But hey, let’s not get carried away. It’s actually going to be fitted out for the foundation of the new thermal lab chamber; it appears the whole thing will be on a raised floor so that we can control thermal loss through the floor!!! Talk about big details.
I still want it tiled and filled with water but they wouldn’t listen to any of my “nonsense”!
Apparently many of our clients, reps and staff, want to see what this lab can do. Grrrrr, so much for simple creature luxuries, I mean comforts.
Going back to the title of this blog, this Big Bang that I’m writing about will change the life of DADANCO forever. Not only will we make a short trip up the hill and around the corner from the highway 90 to our new home but we will also start a journey that will inspire momentum, focus and the creative energy of innovation, allowing us to stay at the forefront of our technology. ‘The Luxton Reed Center’ will catapult us into a new era!
Stay tuned for more updates coming your way!
