Chicago industrial industry


There are many things to love about the pump industry:  The people, the products, the dedication, the innovation and much more.   At EMPOWERING PUMPS, I get to interact with some of the industry’s best and smartest people on a daily basis.

But one of my favorite parts of the pump industry is hitting the road, spending time with the industry leaders and seeing and learning about pump technology in different industries.

This weekend, EMPOWERING PUMPS will be spending time at the PROCESS EXPO Nov 3-6, which is the largest trade show in North America dedicated exclusively to the global food and beverage industry.  The show is scheduled every other year in one of my favorite cities…Chicago!

Chicago hosts the conference every other year and this year features more than 500 companies exhibitors marketing their products and services in the food and beverage industry, including the incredible power of pumps.

Food industry professionals attend PROCESS EXPO to find a wide variety of manufacturing solutions for all segments of the food processing/packaging supply chain.  Be it meat, dairy, prepared foods, bakery, beverage, cereals or any combination of these categories, attendees will find the latest innovations along with the industry experts at PROCESS EXPO.

PROCESS EXPO was recently named the nation’s fastest growing trade show by EXPO Magazine (Jan/Feb 2012), and I’m excited to see three EMPOWERING PUMPS’ partners at the meeting:  Boerger, Lutz Pumps and Mouvex/Wilden/PSG.

Here’s a little more information on each of the three participating companies:

Boerger (Booth 5161)

Boerger specializes in reliable and cost effective Rotary Lobe Pumps and Macerating Technology for the conveyance of low to high, viscous and abrasive materials. Our Rotary Lobe Pump is a self-priming, valveless, positive displacement pump, available in 19 pump models with flow rates up to 5,000 us gpm.

Lutz Pumps  (Booth 2760)

Since 1954, Lutz has been the reliable partner in the field of professional liquid handling. As a supplier of innovative and high-quality pumps and pump systems, the company helps its customers find the right solution for their fluid handling requirements. The company is committed to developing long-term and cooperative relationships with its customers to to safely handle fluids and protect the environment.

Mouvex/Wilden/PSG (Booth 4362)

Pump Solutions Group (PSG®) is the global leader in positive displacement pump and supporting technologies for the safe, efficient and reliable transfer of critical and valuable materials. PSG is a fully integrated company with worldwide scale, global distribution and considerable financial strength.

I can’t wait to see these three companies, their products and their teams in Chicago this weekend, and I hope you take the time to support these companies as well.  I love their teams, products and missions.  I know they’d love to see you too if you are in Chicago at Process Expo.

If you can’t make Process Expo, I encourage you to take a few minutes to learn more about their products and services.  Just hit the company name to learn more about each company.

See you in Chicago!
