    INDUSTRy newsHI AND FSA LEADERS SUMMIT MT. KATAHDIN, MAINE The challenging climb was led by Henri Azibert, chief technology officer of A.W. Chesterton Company and VP of the Fluid Sealing Association with Robert Asdal, Executive Director of the Hydraulic Institute and Henris friend Bob Quinn, Esq. Summiting the highest mountain in Maine, at 5268 feet (1606 meters), by crossing the Knife Edge, took HI and FSA leaders to new heightsliterally speaking. Named Katahdin by the Penobscot Indians, the term means the greatest mountain.

    While this was strictly social adventure, new business opportunities between FSA and HI were explored. The next major educational event being held jointly by FSA and HI is the Fundamentals of Mechanical Seals course. This four-part webinar series was released September 5 and features instructions by experts from four leading seal manufacturers (FSA and HI members), including Henri. Registration details can be found on the HI/Pump Systems Matter website:

"Grundfos expertise as a global leader in water technology helps us truly position Milwaukee as a world water hub."
