The challenging climb was led by Henri Azibert, Chief Technology Officer for A.W. Chesterton and VP of the Fluid Sealing Association with Robert Asdal, Executive Director of the Hydraulic Institute and Henri’s friend Bob Quinn, Esq. Summiting the highest mountain in Maine, at 5,268 feet (1,606 m), by crossing the Knife Edge (check it out on the web!), took HI and FSA leaders to new heights – literally speaking. Named Katahdin by the Penobscot Indians, the term means “The Greatest Mountain”.
While this was a strictly social adventure…new business opportunities between FSA, HI and Pump Systems Matter (PSM) were explored. The next major educational event being held jointly by FSA and HI, hosted by PSM, is the “Fundamentals of Mechanical Seals” course. This four-part webinar series begins on September 5th is instructed by seal experts, including Henri, from four leading seal OEMs – members of FSA & HI.
