We would like to thank our team, clients, and loyal supporters. While at the BHGE Annual meeting in late January we were the proud recipients of a special award. Our relationship with BHGE started more than 20 years ago with the formation of Nuovo Parts Canada in 1996 and has evolved to what it is today. The transition and acquisition by Blackstone brings another strong GE lineage to the team, and we have been highly acknowledged for a great year. Combined we are viewed as a “Role Model” and “Blueprint” for all the channel partners in the world. The above award effectively sets us apart from 70+ other companies in the world working hard to work with the traditional Nuovo Pignone business within BHGE. TPS stands for Turbomachinery & Process Solutions, and we represent them in a unique and dynamic set of ways: Parts, Repairs, Field, Agency, Distributor and Service Provider, Canada & US.
The award is pictured with one of the two boots Allan had bronzed. These are Allan’s original Red Wing boots; one sits in Edmonton and the other in Calgary. They are reminders that all things in life take hard work and specifically in our companies—hard working people who adapt and build a great place to be. 2018 was a hard-transitional year with BHGE and taking on new relationships, and the shop in Sherwood Park are small examples of that.
I look forward to the new challenges that come with realigning ourselves and expanding our services to include other customers and other product lines. None of this is possible without all the daily efforts made by each of you. Thank you all for the opportunity to accept the award on your behalf and the continued execution that makes it very easy for me to say; We are simply the best. Allan and I are excited to take on 2019 with all of you!
