MAC Valves Names FPE Automation Distributor of the Month

It's two honors in two days for FPE Automation!

Our sincere thanks to you for helping us to start the year off strong... 

This just in, from MAC Valves:

FPE Automation is named Distributor of the Month for January 2018

The distributor of the month award results from a classic story about MAC’s reliability in the plants of large, tier 2 automotive manufacturers. Over the past five years FPE Automation’s Joe Judge and Dan McCullough replaced the previous, problematic valves with MAC as the valve of choice, due to continual sticking issues and associated downtime. Over that time, the plant has replaced the other valves with MAC, as the former failed. They have not experienced a single failure with any MAC valve installed. This plant pushed hard for MAC to be the only valve used on their upcoming major retooling program.

Congratulations to Joe and Dan, thanks to MAC Valves and to our valued clients.
