International Elastomer Conference

October 8-10 -- Neville representatives Lou Benvenuti, Brian Domalik, Chris Mostowy and Nathan Tavenor will be attending the International Elastomer Conference in Cleveland, OH next week.

This conference is held every October and is the premier place where educators, customers, manufacturers and suppliers of materials, equipment, tools and services come together. This event provides a forum for the exchange of ideas, observations, regulatory reforms and emerging scientific technologies, as well as learning, networking, seeing current customers and making new ones.

We are looking forward to three days of learning and networking. Hope to see you there.

ASC 2019 FORMULATION SCIENCE SHORT COURSE

Neville employees are always looking at ways to gain knowledge and skills. On September 23-25, 2019, Lou Benvenuti, Nathan Young, Joe Rosmus, Nate Tavenor and Katelynn Wolf will be attending the ASC Formulation Science Short Course right in our backyard of Pittsburgh, PA.

The day and a half course will deliver a comprehensive and highly practical formulation science platform, illustrated using case studies in reactive, hot melt and aqueous formulations by experts in adhesives and coatings. Understanding and discerning when rigorous and iterative statistical design of experiments are needed, which models to choose and when other options make greater sense is critical to success and is a goal of this course.

Summer Interns 2019 - Jake Flaherty, Aaron Guche and Jacob Pittner

This Summer, we were happy to host three interns from the University of Pittsburgh’s Swanson School of Engineering - Jake Flaherty, Aaron Guche and Jacob Pittner.  

Jake, who interned at Neville last Summer, was involved with the various demolition activities for our Hydrogenation Unit construction. He also worked with well repair and replacement, air line installations and Pipe Bent Replacement.

Aaron was a Neville intern last Fall He was also involved in demolition and preparation activities for the Hydrogenation Unit. He worked on the excavation and replacement of the main city water feed valve, oversaw grouting of 27 unused sewer pipes, engineered and ordered a design for the repair of C-74 sewer and coordinated the removal of unused piping.

Jacob joined us mid-Summer and contributed by also working on the Hydrogenation Unit project, conducting contractor Safety Training and working alongside Jake and Aaron.

We are grateful and thank these three young men for their contributions and hard work. We hope their experience at Neville will benefit their education and future endeavors.

On Saturday, June 15th, 19 volunteers participated in the annual Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Committee (ORSANCO) River Sweep collecting refuse and debris from Neville's river bank. The volunteers collected 16 bags of trash in addition to plastic drums, tires, coolers and river buoys.

We thank not only our employees and their families but everyone who participated in helping keep our rivers and their tributaries clean and safe for residents including a fawn and the resident Osprey nest at our river dock.
