Cargill announced that PeopleFlo Manufacturing was chosen as recipient of the first annual recognition of supplier innovation at their Worldwide Maintenance and Reliability Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Specifically, PeopleFlo was recognized for the development of EnviroGear, a new innovative pump for customers in the chemical, petrochemical and food processing markets.  Designed from the ground up, PeopleFlo’s EnviroGear “zero leakage” pumps eliminate the dynamic shaft seal and therefore, eliminate problems caused by shaft seal leakage. As a result, EnviroGear pumps satisfy customer needs to reduce maintenance costs while also eliminating environmental costs.

Over 300 of Cargill’s maintenance and reliability professionals from 14 countries attended the conference. Also invited were twenty-five Cargill Select Suppliers. Cargill plans to continue to recognize supplier innovation by acknowledging one Cargill Select Supplier as an innovation leader during subsequent Maintenance and Reliability Conferences.

“We are pleased and grateful to receive this recognition from one of the world’s premier maintenance and reliability leaders,” said William Blankemeier, President of PeopleFlo. “And we very much appreciate the ideas and suggestions from first-class customers like Cargill that help us continue to improve and expand this product line.”
