Cornell Pump Celebrates the Holidays

Over 150 Cornell employees and guests gathered in downtown Portland last weekend to celebrate the holidays.

All enjoyed a fine meal with colleagues, and everyone could spin to win prizes such as gift cards, google home assistants, Portland-based Shun knives, and more.  Plus, every employee received a Christmas bonus.

Service awards were presented to those with millstone anniversaries, such as five, 10,  20 years, etc., at Cornell Pump. Larry McVicker was recognized for 30 years with Cornell! Congratulations to Larry.

Cornell has grown by more than 60 employees in the last 18 months, and we also have many long-serving employees like Larry. It’s a great place to have a career. If you are interested in opportunities here at Cornell, please check out our employment opportunities.

Cornell’s Metric Tool Kit is now live

Cornell’s popular toolkit is now available in metric sizing as well as imperial units. A mobile application that helps users determine TDH, friction loss, and NPSH, the toolkit also suggests the Cornell pumps that would best meet entered conditions.

The Cornell Metric Toolkit app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play. Metric version is now available in addition to the imperial units application that has been used extensively for several years.

The easy way to tell the applications apart ( in addition to units): Imperial units sizing background is blue, and the metric version is green.
