One of the many services we offer at Wm. T. Spaeder Company is process piping for water treatment plants. We recently completed a new construction project for a water treatment plant in Polk, PA.
In the above video, Foreman Jesse Dikun gives us a plant tour and talks a little about how the plant functions. This water treatment facility uses a membrane filtration system with both spring water and creek water as its source. Spaeder designed, fabricated, and installed all of the process piping as well as installed the membrane filtration units.

Is your organization ready to tip-toe back into hosting events in a socially-distanced world? Though many questions remain about the transmission of COVID-19, it is possible to execute a well-thought out event that reduces potential transmission. While large-scale events likely remain indefinitely on the shelf for many organizaitons, smaller gatherings are possible when enough planning is given to adjust to our "new normal". How? With an abundance of caution. By adhering to health department and federal guidelines, organizations can be cautiously optimistic and plan a path forward to continue connecting, networking, and reestablishing relationships with employees, clients, and supporters.
Over the last several weeks, the Erie Regional Chamber began hosting small-scale networking and signature events so that businesses may continue connecting, collaborating, and learning from each other during these difficult times. When your organization is ready, here are ten tips to consider for your first post-pandemic event.

Accudyn Products, Inc. is proud to introduce the #ErieVotes initiative, a nonpartisan coalition of local businesses committed to encouraging and facilitating participation in this November’s election. For too many in our community, the everyday challenges of transportation, financial need, and family commitments leave little flexibility in daily life.
Uncertainty regarding how long it may take at one’s polling location coupled with the other demands of life may leave some in our community forced to make a decision between meeting their financial and familial obligations or exercising their right to vote. In Pennsylvania, as opposed to other states, there are no laws that require employers to give employees time off to vote. For an employee this could mean that they are forced to use vacation time (if available) or even go unpaid to exercise their right to vote. The owners of Accudyn decided that this choice was not one they wanted their employees to be faced with and declared November 3rd a paid holiday for all employees.
ErieVotes was formed to encourage other local businesses to commit to pledging substantive efforts and providing voter resources. Examples of commitments already made by businesses include:
We encourage local employers to assess the needs of their workforce and to commit to an action or set of actions that could help to remove some of the barriers to voting experienced by their employees by signing the #ErieVotes pledge.
Thank you to Mercyhurst University, The Erie Regional Chamber & Growth Partnership, United Way of Erie County, and American Tinning & Galvanizing for already taking the pledge. #ErieVotes believes in the importance of civic engagement to our democracy and asks all local employers to consider taking action by making the pledge today!
