The Precision Water Level (PWL) version 2 is now available. It is more accurate than our PWL-1, less impacted by temperature, and additional water cups to expand the system are priced much lower. PWL-2s utilize many of the same components and processes as PWL-1s allowing owners of PWL-1s to upgrade with minimal cost. Please contact us or see our PWL page for more details.
I had a great meeting with Congressman Don Beyer’s office on December 2, 2016 and I met the Congressman on December 5, 2016 (he’s on the left). On both occasions, I relayed small business and manufacturing concerns, such as workforce challenges, intellectual property protection, and utilizing U.S. made equipment and tooling on government contracts in addition to utilizing U.S. workers. He was very interested, in part because we are one of the only manufacturers in his district. I’m hoping to have additional conversations with him or his office as topics relevant to U.S. manufacturers arise.

We’re happy to announce that we’re the only GE supplier in Virginia featured on the Faces of GE website. Our Precision Water Level (PWL) reduces the time needed to take measurements on large leveling and flatness projects by 80% or more. GE saves nearly two days of time with every steam turbine assembly they do (which doesn’t count the time savings when leveling the turbine foundation), resulting in a return on investment (ROI) for the PWL of less than 6 months. To put that in perspective, at the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago, the consensus was that an ROI of 2 years is normal for a new tool. Update: Although we’re still listed as a Virginia business, we’ve moved to Pennsylvania and the link to our interview on the Faces of GE website does not work.
