Sand Casting

Hello Lockwood! As we start a new year we have much to look back upon in 2008; there is also plenty to look forward to in 2009, no matter what the news says! In this edition read about the casting process during valve manufacturing; Texas City is our branch spotlight, which wraps up the Gulf Coast region; and we hear from our President and Vice Presidents, as well as the Executive and Management Team. Mike Lockwood, President gives us some insight to 2009. You can read about the trade shows that we participated in this past year, and about our realignment with Quality. We congratulate our new hires, salute our employees service to Lockwood in the Tenure section, and give a birthday salute to our employees. You can read about Supplier Diversity as Lockwood becomes more involved in this program. As always, keep those ideas coming and let’s be proud of our company. Its been a heck of a year.

alves are manufactured in one of two processes - forged and cast. Cast valves are the result of molten metal being poured into molds and then ground or machined. The casting process is said to be over 6000 years old where idols for worship were poured.


t all begins with sand, water and clay. These elements are critical in that they determine the quality of the valves and the quantity that can be produced from that mold. The flask is the box that holds the sand mixture and the master pattern is placed within. The water and sand take on the bonding characteristics of clay when compacted around the master pattern, which is is slightly larger than the finished product because metal shrinks slightly when cooled.


here is a top half (cope) and a bottom half (drag) to the mold. Cavities within the casting are created in a process called coring. The molten metal enters the mold through the pouring cup - a funnel shaped hole which allows the metal to travel down the sprue into the gating system where the cavity from the master pattern is. Vent holes allow the hot gasses to escape during the pour. Risers are cavities within the mold designed to cool after the casting, controlling the location of the shrinkage to the riser, not the casting. The risers are later machined off and reused (yield rate).

umerous ferrous (containing iron) and non-ferrous (not containing iron) pourable metals and alloys can be used such as Nickel, Molybdenum, Copper, Bronze and Iron. With scientific precision and an extremely controlled process of heating and cooling, the metal composition is changed to provide the desired result.

Message from our President

2009 “What we think is less than what we know; What we know is far less than what we love; What we love is so much less than what there is; And to that precise extent we are acting so much less than what we are.” ~R.D. Laing~

Mike Lockwood President

“We are so much more than what we feel or think ... So much more than what we do or say ... So much more than what we accomplish or strive for ... So much more than what one acquires or possesses.”

From Mike Lockwood


s we head into 2009, I would like to say “Thank You” to all of our staff, supply partners and customers for a wonderful 2008. Last year was a terrific year in which we dramatically increased the size of our business, developed numerous new relationships, and tackled significant growing pains. None of this could have been possible without the tremendous support group that has been created within and around our company. Everyone’s participation and contribution is recognized and greatly appreciated. Thank you for being “more.”


o kick off this year we are very fortunate to have a sizeable backlog of work and an excellent clientele base to continue to grow our business. We have committed to adopting our quality assurance program throughout the organization to improve our efficiency and effectiveness. We have identified new products and new markets which we believe will provide stability and balance to our overall strength. Finally, we have continued our global expansion to provide geographical diversity and opportunities. All of these activities were developed in 2008 and are ready for full implementation in 2009.


lthough there is a significant amount of negative business propaganda throughout the media, we have worked diligently to prepare ourselves for varying degrees of business activity. We are well capitalized, have and are continuously adding high quality personnel, collaborate with top quality manufacturers, and are partnered with blue chip, first class consumers. As such we are poised to continue building a successful company in 2009 and for many years to follow. Happy New Year ...Mike Lockwood

Tom Lockwood Vice President

December 15, 2008 Tom Lockwood delivered another successful Valve School 101. According to Tom, Terry Choi will become the next facilitator for the program and will be responsible for rolling it out to the branches as needed. This class was captured on video and we look forward to sharing that with you. We’ll let you know when the next training session of Valve School 101 will be, and Valve school 201 won’t be far behind. Thanks, Tom!

008 is behind us now and what a year it was.

June Yonkman Vice President

Commercial Manager

n the beginning of the year projects were going so fast and furious we could not keep up.


hen the global financial crisis hit the market and

projects slowed down almost immediately.


owever, we are still blazing ahead with new products and exciting marketing plans.


ne of the new products we are now stocking is the Pacific HF Acid Valve and

our Milan Branch in Italy is now stocking and marketing the TY Italia ball valve.


lso, please watch for our exciting new website that will be launched this month which will keep you updated on our company and products.



etty Allen spares us a few moments, but instead of a departmental update she gives some pointers on how we might prepare personally in case some of the analysts are correct in their predictions of a long hard recession. e are doing everything we can to prepare Lockwood International for a recession and we would like to encourage our employees to do the same. To assist in the process Lockwood is pleased to offer two “Taking Control” one hour seminars on January 13, 2009 (9:30 a.m. & 11:00 a.m. in Conference Room C) for interested employees. We will schedule additional time if the interest and need is shown. The seminar covers an eight step program:

• Organize your financial records • Calculate your net worth • Draw up a spending and saving plan • Build an emergency fund • Minimize your debt • Draft four essential estate planning documents • Acquire proper insurance • Create a Financial Plan



nother good thing to do in tight financial times is to protect your credit. This can be done easily at little cost. It just takes a short time to write each of the credit bureaus to request that you be notified immediately if an inquiry is made against your credit. Another option is to subscribe to a credit monitoring Page 3

service for a monthly charge. The one I am aware of has a cost of $14.95 per month. We will make the addresses for the credit bureaus available in both Betty Allen the HR and Payroll Chief Financial Officer departments to anyone who expresses interest.


est wishes to all in 2009 as we embrace the opportunities and weather the challenges. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!”

Quality & Safety




ockwood’s early New Year’s resolution is the realignment with quality in a big way. Quality is the degree of excellence by which the value of a product or performance is judged. As quality drives the market and thus the performance, it is clear that here at Lockwood International we adhere to the creed of quality to ensure the value of our product is continuously raised to new heights. s we move into another year, 2009 brings yet a greater demand of diligence and awareness on the part of each and everyone of us. Lockwood’s growth is hinged on the quality of our customer service which has been quoted as “Second to None.” Benny Howard For this reason, it is important to follow and help improve our Quality Process System. Quality Manager ockwood is dedicated to its customer service and it’s employees; as employees it is our responsibility to commit to and actively participate in our Quality Process System; our success depends on it.




Lockwood’s new Safety logo

ubmitted by Steve Tidwell: Safety in the distribution industry demands the attention of everyone involved. It requires the warehouse employees, salesmen, engineers, visitors to our facility, supervisors, managers and the owners to play their role. We must work together to create a safe and healthy workplace for all. The new Safety Manual will be one of the major contributions to help us learn and improve safety. ith that being said, it gives me great pleasure to introduce the New Lockwood Safety Manual and Safety logo, as we head into the future of Health Safety and Environmental.”


OPERATIONS say “pictures are worth Twithhey a thousand words”, so Operations, we’ll just let

these pictures do the talking. Needless to say ...busy busy busy. A very big shout out to all warehouse personnel: THANK YOU! You are doing a Donna Wells Operations Manager great job.

reetings from Lockwood Texas City branch. Texas City is branch number 6 and we are located approximately 40 miles southeast of our Houston Corporate office. Our branch has been up and running since January of 2004. e currently have three employees Wilma Hand, Diana Baker, and myself. Wilma has been with Lockwood since 1998 and worked in the Houston office before transferring to the Texas City branch in April of 2004. Her duties include managing the Invista MRO. She has been managing their MRO account since June 2007 for their La Porte and Victoria plant locations. Wilma has been doing an outstanding job with this account and we are extremely proud to have her on our team. I joined Lockwood in September of 2004 with a brief stay in Houston before transferring to Texas City in October of the same year. My duties include the short sales mainly involving other valve supply companies. Diana is our newest member coming aboard in April of 2008. She has transitioned some of the duties from Wilma and myself and has really been a big help to us. exas City is a major industrial area along the Texas Gulf coast. The city sits along the west bank of Galveston bay with easy access to the Houston ship channel. We have three refineries here in Texas City BP, Valero, and Marathon. The BP plant is the 3rd largest refinery in the United States. There are three chemical plants Dow, Sterling, and ISP located here also along with several other smaller specialty plants. here is a lot of potential in this town for future business and growth and as we continue to grow and pursue these opportunities, the sky is the limit.

either expanded by adding new customers or by selling other valves such as HF Acid valves. Several of the smaller branches have even broken revenue milestones in open orders. And we have added several new members, as well, to

The construction at the Shorewood facility is almost at a close, new windows and a few lights are all that is needed now. It has been almost four months of dust, power tools and the occasional swearing. The swearing was not from the construction crew but from Cathy Erickson who has endured it all from the start. We are experiencing our third major winter storm that started at 9 a.m. and is supposed to drop more than a foot of snow and ice before it’s over on Christmas Eve. The first two storms tied up traffic and caused power outages all over the Chicago area but it “tis the season”. We are gearing up for a interesting year due to the economy and are looking forward to the challenges that it will bring. Cathy, Anne, Staci and Tom are all a great asset to the company and are working very hard to ensure the success of the branch.

Branch Communication SARNIA NEWS - Ruth Boyling

Hello from Sarnia Branch! Well, the snow has fallen and it looks like we are going to get hit by a lot more in the next week. News from Sarnia is Imperial Oil is keeping us busy with shutdowns right now. The water front along the St. Clair River has been decorated with miles of Christmas lights

again which we call the “Festival of Lights”. Most of us Sarnian’s take at least a couple of nightly drive-by’s before Christmas to see all the beautiful twinkling decorations. This usually puts us in the Christmas spirit. Some of us actually get out of our cars for a walk amongst all the displays. In February we have the Ice Festival. It gets pretty cold and the shipping channel between the

Port Huron Michigan and Sarnia freezes most years. There is an ice sculpture competition on the water front and different events are happening on the frozen waterway, including Ice motorbike races. If there is enough snow we can also go cross country skiing in Canatara Park and along the lake shore of Lake Huron. Ya’ll should come up and enjoy a bit of our winter!

While Petro Canada kept the facility running as best as they could using management replacement workers, the “lock out” quickly had a rippling negative effect on the local economy, effecting contractors, to fabricators to electricians right down the line to local ma & pa restaurants!. Finally!, On Dec 24th 2008 workers at our Petro-Canada refinery here in Montreal gave themselves a long a waited Christmas present from Petro Canada and voted overwhelmingly to accept a new labour agreement to end a 13-month lockout by the company. Merry Christmas! The three-year agreement provides for retroactive wage increases of 5.0 percent, 4.5 percent and 4.5

MONTREAL NEWS - Daniel Rossman For those of you who did not know, back in Nov 2007 Canada’s No. 4 oil and exploration and refining company, locked out 260 workers at the 130,000 bpd refinery after union members voted to authorize a strike! The union alleged PetroCanada had wanted the union to accept reduced rights and swallow a claw-back on their seniority rights. It said concessions on training and health and safety were also sought...and so the first of many stones were thrown...... As a result of break downs in negotiations, Petro-Canada had no choice but to put the brakes on construction of a C$1 billion ($820 million USD) coker unit at the facility, which would allow it to process heavy crudes from the Alberta oil sands or elsewhere and lower feedstock costs.


Baton Rouge added its 9th employee during October. Amy Lee joined the Baton Rouge branch in early October and is assisting in a sales assistant function but, as is usual in a small office, has taken on many other support duties as well. The branch has had the good fortune of a very stable employee base since its establishment in the summer of 2001 and welcomes Amy to “our world”. The employees and spouses or guests enjoyed a Christmas season dinner at T.J. Ribs Restaurant on Wednesday, December 18.

“Construction of the new warehouse facility in Port Arthur continues (picture) with scheduled completion in the next 60 days”.

Lockwood Italy is up and running. Up to now we have myself, Aldo Bargeri our inside sales manager (over 30 years of experience in the valve business), and Aldo’s son Nazzareno (inside sales). We have already quoted valve packages to our branches in North America and Singapore as well as to our customers in Europe and Middle East. We are confident to book some substantial business within the next few weeks. With regard to ADIPEC it was a strategic show in order to, for the first time, have TY Valve products in front of our potential customers; we made very good contacts and we should look at this event as medium/long term investment in the Middle East.


Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition & Conference Giovanni Capasso (bottom left picture) attended ADIPEC November 4-8, 2008 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. ADIPEC is one of the largest petroleum shows in the world with the presence of international oil producers, international service companies, manufacturers, engineering contractors, trading companies and consultants. Over 40,000 industry executives came together for this four day event.

Valve World 2008 Conference & Expo


alve World 2008 hosted a bountiful array of valve suppliers and manufacturers. The Valve World 2008 Conference and Exhibition held on 4 – 6 November in Maastricht, Netherlands turned out to be a massive success for all exhibiting companies as well as conference delegates. Topics included standardization, modeling and design, automated valves and safety. Next to the Valve World 2008 Conference, of course, the Valve World 2008 Exhibition plays an important role. Lockwood International (representing TY Valve) and OMB shared a delightfully decorated booth that many interested parties stopped by for a visit and information. Lockwood was pleased with the traffic and the relationships that were formed. We are still working with several key contacts that were met at the show.

ockwood was a proud sponsor at the 2008 Valero Texas Open, an event which raised over 8.5 million dollars for children’s charities. This tournament was one stop on the PGA TOUR and was played at the Westin La Cantera Resort October 9-12, 2008. The event includes The Valero Texas Open 18th hole sponsor Benefit for Children Golf Classic, Feed The Children, another benefactor of proceeds from the tournament.

Oct. 4-5, 2008 - San Antonio, TX to Corpus Christi, TX. ockwood proudly contributed not only time and money, but support to the The Valero MS150 Bike-to-the-Beach, an annual fundraising campaign by Valero for the “race for the cure”. The proceeds benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Society, which dedicates itself to freeing the world of this horrible disease. MS is a chronic disabling disease, which seems to take its victims randomly, in which the immune system attacks the central nervous system. ockwood’s own - Steve Shubnell and Greg Ganz, along with Greg’s son, Anton, and Carrie Cash rode in the 164 mile two day event. Although Steve trained prior to the ride, none of them had ever cycled that distance before except for Carrie. he first day was 96 miles from San Antonio to Beeville, with a bonus leg to complete a total of 100 miles. Steve and Carrie both earned the “100 mile patch” (aka “The Century”) .

Riding with Team Velo Valero, they optimistically plan to complete the 164 mile, yet only one does so. he second day started at 5 a.m. and required both determination and drive, and paved the way for Steve to earn another patch to “Cross the Bridge”. It sounds pretty simple, but few people can imagine the physical and emotional stamina required to complete such a challenge. teve started a pace line of 3-5 cyclists cruising around 23-24 mph, eventually gaining front stage of the ride. This turned into 3 sets of 25 cyclists side-by-side on wet pavement (not the safest). After breaking for lunch, the headwinds joined the ride, which brought the 75 cyclists down to 8, with speeds dwindling to 13-

15 mph. For the next 25 miles they endured the strong Corpus Christi headwinds. Now alone, Steve had “only“ 9 miles to go, but “the Bridge” lay ahead. “the Bridge” is a mile long with a steep incline; not something you want to do after finishing up the final legs of a 164 mile road trip. With 163 miles behind him, our own Steve Shubnell completes the ride. When reaching the finish line an “incredible energy greeted the riders from the awaiting crowd, (its) a pretty cool feeling”, according to Steve. He says, “we caught up with our SAG - Support Aid Group/Support And Gear drivers, Jesse and Pete Gonzales. A special “THANK YOU” goes out to these guys. Steve says his average speed was 17 mph. “Not bad for a first timer. “MS150 Bike to the Beach” - a great ride for a great cause.” Way to go, Lockwood!
