RE: The Latest From Froude
The New Froude is making significant progress in achieving our goals. We are continuing to make Froude a world-class customer service company and are updating our industry-leading dynamometer technology with new product introductions. Through an introduction of new talent, we are creating capability and expertise.
We couldn’t have predicted a better reaction to the New Froude and a more receptive market. We’ve been showered by requests, activity and a “we’re glad you’re back” reception by our customers.
We’ve recently brought on some talented individuals with outstanding experience and academic achievement to help us adapt, improve and add capacity. They come to us with proven success and capability in our market and similar markets. Our new hires have been chosen not only for their talent and capability, but also for their fit into our culture. A culture that focuses on fostering customer relationships and caring about the people with whom we work. We believe the character of our employees is key and will drive our success.
Our new fabricated dynamometer bases are answering our customers’ requests for increased flexibility and performance. Our updated control systems (coming out soon!) will help comply with new engine performance needs as well as the latest software operating systems and network requirements.
Froude Engineering in Worcester is now Froude, Ltd. This change provides us the ability to clearly use “Froude” to represent us as a company. The two sites, although different legal entities, work closely together as a single company. Technically we are Froude, Inc. and Froude, Ltd. but as a group, we are Froude.
You will find us in booth 7024 at the HAI Heli-Expo show in Dallas Texas on March 7th through the 9th. If you are attending, please visit our booth and check out the changes I’ve discussed above. We’re excited about our fast-changing company and appreciate the positive response we’ve received.
Thanks again for your support and interest in Froude.
Signed for and on behalf of Froude
Andrew W. Sadlon, President
Froude, Inc. and Froude, Ltd.
