Award’s purpose is to recognize OPW partners who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to help improve OPW products and the industry
HAMILTON, OH – October 22, 2015 –
OPW, a Dover company (NYSE: DOV) and a global leader in fluid handling solutions, is proud to award Michael Zubel of Houston-based Landmark Industries with its newly created OPW Collaborative Product Improvement Award. This new award recognizes OPW distributors and customers that demonstrate a level of collaborative partnership deemed to significantly exceed typical standards and results in a product improvement beneficial to the industry.
"The OPW Collaborative Product Improvement Award is really OPW thanking a customer for caring about our success as much as we do," said Matt Lauber, OPW Above Ground Product
Manager. "We appreciate being to able to partner so closely with our customers."
Parrish Evans, OPW Retail Fueling Director of Sales North America, Josh
OPW Western Regional Sales Manager, and Matt Lauber, OPW Above Ground Product Manager presented Mr. Zubel the award in the OPW booth at the recent 2015 PEI / NACS Show and Convention. Mr. Zubel graciously accepted the award in front of a number of industry professionals and OPW employees.
"This was a complete surprise to Michael," said Lauber. "This is a customer who sat down in his office, looked at a product and said I love this, but I think it could be better. He did this, not because we asked him to, but because he saw something to help improve it. That is the very essence of this award."
Douglas Olenick, OPW Product Manager of CleanEnergy
was part of the original team that listened to Zubel's feedback. "Not every customer is going to handle a product the way an engineer plans," said Olenick. "Michael's feedback and insight really gave our engineers something to think about. That does not always happen and that's why he is so deserving."
