Santa Day Breakfast at Cornell

Cornell employees and families are enjoying a great December! Santa paid a visit to Cornell Pump on Saturday, December 9, bringing presents for more than 50 children of Cornell employees.  The breakfast was a great treat, with specialty pancakes lofted into the air for all who dared catch them (or set on plates for little ones.)

Cornell employees are also going to enjoy a holiday dinner next Saturday with their spouse/significant other.

And employees have thought of others as well—we donated over 1,200 cans of food for the local food bank during a drive.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We will be closed Thursday, November 23rd, 2017, for Thanksgiving, and open with a small crew for emergency needs on Friday.

Ron’s article examines Cornell’s various approaches to fouling, ragging, and plugging, and how three generations of cutters with rotating and stationary elements address the task.

Saturday, July 29, dozens of Cornell employees and their families spent an enjoyable afternoon having a great picnic, enjoying carnival games, and a taking ride on the Willamette River Jet Boats. Face painting for children was a big hit, the catered food truck burgers and fries were scrumptious, and employees won great raffle prizes.

Cornell Pump appreciates its employees and all the hard work they do in making industry leading centrifugal pumps. We’re looking forward to the employee golf tournament next month, and the holiday party in December!
