Thanksgiving 2020 – A Perspective

By General No Comments

Happy Thanksgiving 2020Thanksgiving 2020 – We Hope You Enjoy This Years Thanksgiving Letter.

Our office will be closed on Nov 26th and 27th, 2020.

2020 has been an unprecedented year to put it mildly. Everything started out okay, but things quickly went south, starting with Impeachment proceedings against our President at the same time we first heard about a novel coronavirus coming from China. Things quickly got worse from there. We all know about the nightmare we’ve endured these past 8 months, with lockdowns, fear mongering and a radical change in the way we live our lives. To top it all off, we have a contested Presidential election with an outcome that is anyone’s guess. How far we have fallen!

Our Great Nation and the whole world are in peril, but we as Americans are up to the task of getting things back on track. If America’s good people stand up and speak up for righteousness and Goodness, we will prevail.

“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” ~ Author Unknown

Patriotism is NOT Dead – Happy Fourth of July 2020

By General

Patriotism is NOT DeadOur office will be closed on Friday July 3rd, 2020. We will resume normal business hours on Monday, July 6, 2020.

We made it. It’s here. Independence Day 2020. 244 years ago today, on July 4th, 1776, a handful of brave men and women, some well-educated, all successful and responsible, who loved their fellow man, who forged out a new nation from the harsh wilderness, braving great peril and even death from the harsh environment, from extreme weather, wild animals, threats of peril from bellicose bands of violent savages and outlaws, pestilence and disease!

They could deal with all those threats and they did so successfully. What they would not tolerate was oppression from a far-away ruling authority named George III, who was the King of England and felt that the citizens of the New World were his subjects and toiled for and at his pleasure.

Happy 4th of July!The leaders of the Colonists had had enough and listed the Grievances they had against the crown that despite their complaints, had failed to be addressed. King George’s rule of the Colonies included occupation by an oppressive and draconian standing military force (The Regulars), who routinely broke into private homes and took whatever they wanted in the name of the crown. The King also ordered that trade be cut off to the Colonies, barred citizens from a fair and speedy trial, imposed unfair taxes without representation and 23 more grievances enumerated in a document that defined America and established it as a free and sovereign nation called the Declaration of Independence, which ushered in the Revolutionary War.

Why Quality Matters

By General

Quality is more than just a word at Peabody Engineering; it is part of our value system. And that value isn’t just driven by how many hours we put into the design, cost, testing, and delivery of a finished product. Quality is what a product does for our customers—from distribution partners to end-users. If the product or service doesn’t perform to customers’ expectations, then nothing else matters.

Peabody’s standards set the bar high in the industrial storage tanks and telecom concealment markets because we deliver on five precise components of quality to ensure customer satisfaction, from prototype to final product.

In-House Operations

Peabody Engineering keeps much of its design and production process in-house, as opposed to outsourcing. This gives us more control over our inputs as well as our ability to deliver the final product sooner and reduce costs. We design and produce our own line of tanks and perform our own tooling and rotational plastic molding internally to ensure quality at every step of the manufacturing process.

Strategic Focus

Quality and experience go hand-in-hand. For more than 60 years, Peabody Engineering has known who we are. With our roots in commercial tanks and concealment products, our focus is intentional, so we can deliver quality, reliable and sustainable solutions to our customers. As storage tank industry experts, we stay ahead of technology and wisely invest in our manufacturing capabilities, with a focus of developing intuitive new products consistently.     

Durable Materials

Quality products start with the most durable and long-lasting materials. Peabody uses the industry’s most premium lines of fiberglass reinforced polymers (FRP) and top of the market chemically resistant polyethylenes. From our rugged, corrosion-resistant polyethylene potable water tanks, to our high-density linear polyethylene bulk chemical storage tanks, to our heavy-duty engineered chemical tanks systems that are virtually unaffected by ultra-violet rays and other environmental conditions, all of Peabody’s storage tanks are strong, engineering-level tolerances and highly reliable for your most demanding applications.

Intuitive Tank Designs

Communication is key in Peabody’s design process. The good quality design comes from listening to and understanding the end user’s expectations in order to provide them with the most intuitive product for a seamless installation and user experience.

Certifications

As Industrial Plastic Tank manufacturing leaders, Peabody Engineering works hard to stay ahead of the demands of the industry, including being certified to meet quality and purity standards. We have recently secured an upgraded certification for ANSI/NSF-61 compliance in The United States and Canada through ALS Global/Truesdail Laboratories which makes all of our tanks compliant in most municipalities across the continent.

Peabody Engineering has been designing, building, and delivering quality Commercial/Industrial storage tank solutions for six decades, in all shapes and sizes, and always with an emphasis on quality. Visit our website today to learn more about our industrial storage tanks as well as our other division, which manufactures telecom concealment systems.
