On tour with Task Force Tips

Tuesday, April 20, 2010 – update

Its Brad Boddez from the Fire Within. I'm just writing a quick blog for the site about our tour at Task Force Tips in Valparaiso, Ind.

The tour started with TFT dividing us into three groups. Two groups went for a tour in the plant while the other had a practical hands-on session with some of their products. Everyone rotated through the three groups. The tour was very interesting and well planned. Our tour guides were very knowledgeable with all the stages of their production. This is a very professional organization and the tour was a very enjoyable one.

morning went by extremely fast as we saw how TFT made all the construction,
fabrication, developing, producing, shipping, pretty much every stage of how
their nozzles were produced from start to finish. 

the tours, TFT gave us a fabulous lunch where we got to ask questions and
socialize with various TFT staff.

On a
special note, we got to meet Stewart McMillan, the son of Task Force Tips
founder Clyde McMillan. He shared some great stories of the history of Task
Force Tips and how he continued his father's vision into what TFT has become
today. It is a tour that I will definitely remember and am happy to have had
the opportunity to participate in it.
