What opportunities and challenges does your company face?
Like many industries over the past few years, we have faced ongoing supply chain challenges. However, we continue to address them as they arise and keep our customers informed of our lead times and product availability. These challenges have encouraged us to adopt a culture of agility and process improvement to mitigate risks as they are uncovered, and course-correct quickly when needed. As the procurement of electronic components becomes more and more challenging, we have prioritized the continued support of our mechanical product lines to ensure that our customers have access to the products their pipelines depend on.
In your opinion, what will be the role of natural gas in the next 50 years?
We are firm believers in the importance of natural gas today and in the future as a sustainable source of energy, especially in the northern half of the world where renewables are less dependable and consistent. As certain regions turn to alternative sources of energy, it’s important to inform consumers about production methods of other forms of energy and how critical natural gas supply will be to support energy generation demand in the future. Although change is certain, we are confident that natural gas will continue to be a part of the world’s energy equation in the future.
