We began our core business of designing and building regenerative air preheaters in Wellsville, New York, in 1923. Today, as the lead center for air preheater technology throughout the global ALSTOM organization, our products and services are second to none. The Ljungström® Air Preheater is the stated preference of both utility power generation and industrial plant customers throughout the world.
Our long established capability to supply products and services worldwide is the key to our success. It is the result of many years of specialization in designing, developing and then applying these principles to supply reliable equipment.
As the worlds most experienced company in our field, our current equipment designs incorporate performance and operation features developed from the experience gained in manufacturing, erecting, commissioning and maintaining over 14,000 air preheaters. These features, including new heat transfer surfaces and cleaning and sealing arrangements, are available to upgrade existing Ljungström® Air Preheaters.
By maintaining our focus on global technology leadership and continuous improvement, the Air Preheater Company is committed to deliver value-added products, services and solutions to meet the requirements of our customers, worldwide.
As the requirements of our customers have continued to evolve, so has our focus. We have long recognized the need to deliver more than simply a good product. Our commitment to customer satisfaction drives our quest for continuous improvement.
As an example, for over five years, we have maintained nearly 100% on time delivery for our customers. In 1982, we became the first United States company to be certified under the OSHA VPP Star Worksite Program. We continue in the Star program today, with over 20 years of continuous certification. In 1994 the Wellsville facility was ISO 9001 certified, and our worker safety performance is five times better than the national average.
With our commitment to customer satisfaction and continuous improvement, we will continue to serve customers needs for years to come with experienced people, efficient business processes, and the most advanced technology.
