Busy Year and Merry Christmas 2017

By | General | No Comments

Our office will be closed on
Monday Dec 25th, 2017 and Monday, Jan 1, 2018

This has been a busy year for us and we want to Thank You for your continued support. Of most notable achievement this past year was the building and upstart of 2 new Rotational Molding Machines. Not only did we have to get these machines built quickly (the machines arrived in pieces and our team built them from the ground up), but we also had to put ourselves on the fast-track to learn and utilize these machines.

It has been a challenge and we have some pretty great Peabody Team Members who have bumped it up a notch and done what was needed to take care of business. This stems all the way from our Customer Service department, to our Engineering Department, to our Production Floor, to our Shipping Department and the unsung departments that do their part to keep us moving forward. It has been all hands on deck and everyone working together to take Peabody Engineering to the next level of Manufacturing and Distributing great Peabody Products.

 

We are now able to make larger capacity Gemini Dual Containment® Tanks and ProChem® Tanks.

If you attended either the AWT or WEFTEC shows this past year you got the chance to see our 1,300 Gallon Gemini Dual Containment® Tank with assorted fittings

 

 

This year we have also came out with:

(Going The Extra Mile). Peabody Team Members vote for who they think deserves this acknowledgement amongst their peers. You can go here to see all the winners.

Our amazing Peabody Team Members also take the time to get involved in humanitarian projects like:

  • Samaritans Christmas Child
  • Hurricane Relief
  • St Jude’s Ranch for Children.

 

Peabody Engineering was honored to be nominated in the Small Company Category for The Top Workplace Awards for the entire Inland Empire Region of California and we placed 7th, there were a lot of great companies that we were up against. We are very proud of our Great Team and Great Company Culture.

Some of you have been with us for many years and some of you are new. We have an open door policy and if you need us we are only a phone call away.

We Have The Pilgrims to Blame

Thanksgiving 2017 – We Hope You Enjoy This Years Thanksgiving Letter.

Our office will be closed on Nov 23rd and 24th, 2017.

Way back in the Mid-1500’s, North America was sparsely populated by indigenous people, natives, who led a tribal existence based upon hunting, fishing and farming. At the time, stronger tribes would routinely raid the weaker tribes, taking their resources and enslaving the survivors of the skirmishes, usually only 25% to 40%, the rest perishing in the conflict on both sides. For the most part, the “foreign conquerors” at the time were primarily Spanish and primarily in the Southern portion of the continent and south into Central America, where they had their hands full with the Aztecs and Mayans, who controlled the region.

At the same time in Europe, King Henry the VIII and his wife Catherine had a baby girl named Mary and Martin Luther began the Protestant Reformation in Wittenberg Germany, breaking away from the Catholic Church and spawned a movement of a desire for freedom of worship without the dogma and tradition of the Roman Catholic rulers of the day. The English Monarchy established the Church of England as the official religion of their people and mandated all British citizens to follow their tenets and customs, which looked very much like what the Catholics did to cause the Reformation to begin with. Enter the Separatists (also known as the Pilgrims) who wanted nothing to do with that church……Read the full Peabody Engineering Thanksgiving newsletter by clicking here. It is in PDF format (3.93mb)
