Cornell Celebrates Thanksgiving 2019

Cornell Pump employees sat down together to celebrate Thanksgiving 2019 on Thursday November 21. All enjoyed Southern BBQ, including smoked beef brisket, BBQ’ed chicken, and pulled pork heaped on plates along with BBQ beans, coleslaw, and finished up with pecan and pumpkin pies. We’re thankful to work for an industry-leading company, thankful for great distributors and customers, and thankful we can all pull together every day to make the best centrifugal pumps in the world. We’ll be closed Thursday and Friday, November 28 and 29, 2019, in order to celebrate Thanksgiving with our friends and families.

At the meeting, new employees (more than 10 hired in the last quarter) were introduced. If you’d like to be part of Cornell Pump, please look at our employment information.  We continue to expand, and are looking for talented and motivated employees across many disciplines.

We hope you have a great Thanksgiving!

World Toilet Day 2019

Cornell Pump started in Portland, Oregon in 1946. This weekend, residents of our fair Rose City, were treated to a giant ‘poo’ emoji in Pioneer Square, as a reminder of World Toilet Day on Tuesday, November 19.  An official United Nation’s observance day, World Toilet Day is a held to encourage all people to have access to clean, reliable sanitation by 2030.

At more than 30 feet tall, the emoji holds an immersive theater that explains the need for proper sanitation around the world and how a reliable toilet, hooked to well-functioning sewage and waste water systems, are vital for human health and happiness. And every visitor to take the tour generates a $2 donation to fund safe sanitation.

Cornell Pump has been manufacturing high-quality municipal pumps since the 1950’s. Learn more about our reliable and innovative designs, many of which are used in safe sanitation systems around the world.

Read more about the Giant Poo emoji in Portland, described as an amusement ride, on Portland Local News Station KOIN’s website.

And, if you are wondering, after the emoji is flushed from Pioneer Square, Cornell Pump’s hometown will be setting up the 35th Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony, held the day after Thanksgiving.
