2018 Titans vs Pats TAMCO trip

Aside from having the ability to offer our customers a variety of reliable, state-of-the-art and energy-efficient solutions, being an HVAC manufacturer’s rep provides other opportunities we can pass on to our customers. Some include product training, special conferences/seminars, and of course, factory tours. This past month three lucky customers along with sales engineer, Kevin Wixom, took part in a unique opportunity provided by TAMCO.

TAMCO, our damper and louver manufacturer, has a manufacturing facility in Nashville, TN. Being the Nashville is a desirable destination to visit they host several factory tours and events every year and offer their reps the opportunity to bring their customers for an educational and fun trip. TAMCO also has a hospitality suite at Nissan Stadium for all home Titans’ football games. Knowing that Flow Tech is based in New England they reached out to us to see if we’d be interested in attending the Titans vs Patriots game on November 11, 2018, and we gladly accepted the offer.

Kevin Wixom, an avid Pats fan, attended on Flow Tech’s behalf. Kelly Oren of van Zelm Engineers, Craig Parker of BVH and Scott Massengill of F&F Mechanical were the lucky customers to join Kevin on this adventure. They arrived on Saturday, November 10th and packed as much learning and fun into the weekend as possible before departing on Monday, November 12th.
