Editor’s Note: I solicited the following post from Hal Bolter, who is President of Florida Fluid System Technologies, Inc. and a member of the Chamber Board of Directors. If you have any good news or announcements that you would appreciate seeing here please email them to webmaster (at) lakelandchamber (dot) com. Thanks Hal for allowing us to spread your good news.
Aaron Bates, Vice President of Communications and â€œMaster of Chamber Blogosphereâ€, overheard me answering the question â€œSo, howâ€™s business for you guys Hal?â€ at the Lakeland Chamber Board Meeting. After the meeting adjourned, Aaron leaned across the table and said, â€œDo you mind sending me your answer for our blog? I think our Chamber members would appreciate some good news.â€
So here we goâ€¦good news.
First, let me say, Florida Fluid System Technologies, Inc. is blessed in many waysâ€¦
- We have tremendous, dedicated, professional people on our team. They are committed to quality and integrity, and flat out love to please our customers.
- We serve a very diverse market (not diversity like the Chamber thinks, but, letâ€™s just call it industrial diversity). We serve the Power, Water, Marine, Pharmaceutical, Oil & Gas, Chemical, etc. marketsâ€¦so weâ€™re blessed not to have our eggs in one basket.
- We represent an incredible manufacturerâ€¦Swagelok. You can check them out at www.swagelok.com. They are hard wired for high growth â€“ are constantly making the right investments, developing the right strategies, and casting the right vision for high performance. Itâ€™s great to be on a very good team (Randy Moss was great with the Patriotsâ€¦he was a non-factor for the Raiders).
Because we are part of a great organization, have a fantastic team, and incredible customersâ€¦I should always answer the questionâ€¦”Weâ€™re doing Great!”
So Aaron, weâ€™re doing greatâ€¦business is up, we are on our way to a record year with several key financial measures exceeding all time highs, our people are growing, and we are developing a tremendous team of leaders. I wake up every day excited to get back at it.
