President’s Message

Where did the lazy days of summer go? Labor Day is around the corner (Monday, September 1st) and for many in the U.S., this holiday marks the end of summer. Schools are back in session, vacation season has passed, and for some, much cooler temperatures are in the forecast. Regardless of where you are in the world, we hope your summer months have been relaxing, memory-filled and rejuvenating.

Our business continues to grow at a fast-pace and we thank you for your interest, support and patronage. L.A. Turbine is here to serve your turboexpander needs no matter what season it is. Let us know how we can help.

By the way, I’ll be in L.A. Turbine’s Booth 1939 at the Turbo & Pump Show in Houston, September 22-25th. Stop by and say “hello.”
