|We Don't Put Our Fiberglass Buildings on Pedestals, But Our Customers Do!
Along the floodplains of the Illinois River, there are well pumps that need to be protected. The city of Carrolton turned to Shelter Works fiberglass buildings for long-lasting, lightweight, low maintenance protection of its critical equipment.

When gas companies store the gas near where the need is, it lowers the stress on our limited gas pipelines and increases availability near the point of usage (versus housing at the point of collection). Gas stored deep underground mixes with water which can be salty and corrosive, so specialized equipment is installed at the wellheads to separate the gas from the water right at the point of retrieval.
Shelter Works attended the Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition & Conference (WEFTEC) show in New Orleans at the beginning of October after conducting a pre-WEFTEC show webinar for reps in the water and waste water industries. John Miller, Director of Sales and Operations, was able to host breakfasts and information sessions with over 20 reps from around the country. He explains, "It was a great opportunity to connect with our representatives from all around the Country at one time, discuss their challenges, and talk about the exciting changes Shelter Works is initiating to provide greater support to them and increased value to their clients. We're setting the stage for greater interaction and support that will be rolled out over the next few months." Miller also had the chance to meet with a few potential reps in other areas to expand our service even further.
