On October 2 at 6pm Central time, the news was released that Howden had completed the purchase of Siemens Turbomachinery Equipment / Siemens Energy – read the news here. At 9am the next morning, the crowds began to gather around booth 3931. John Parrish, Senior Vice President of Howden Roots, welcomed the Turblex brand and our new colleagues to Howden and, following a countdown, the sheets were removed to reveal the new equipment.
Throughout the rest of the day, the Howden team was busy with visitors to the booth who were intrigued by the news and new Howden Turbo Technology equipment. As the end of the eventful day approached, we hosted a celebration at the stand and were joined by Colfax CEO Matt Trerotola.
WEFTEC 2017 was exceptionally special and exciting for Howden this year as we announced the inclusion of new global turbo brands into the Howden family. As we packed up and left Chicago, we all reflected on the huge change that has taken place in our business and what that means for you. Our family of Howden Turbo Technology brands is expanding and that means more brands, solutions, experience and support for our customers. You can find out more about our new Turbo technologies which will include compressors and blowers along with our new range of steam turbines.
