“When we saw displaced Houstonians in the convention center where we exhibit at TPS each year, we knew we had to do something,” said Drew Devitt, founder of New Way Air Bearings. “We wanted to give back to the city that has supported TPS for so many years.”
Donations to the #TPSHelpsHouston relief fund will be processed by ShelterBox USA, a nonprofit that supplies aid to those displaced by disaster. All funds raised through #TPSHelpsHouston will support emergency shelter efforts in Houston and nearby regions.
Contributors include New Way Air Bearings, Turbo Lab symposium staff, PSC Couplings, Compression Energy Management, Keene Turbomachinery Services, Dynamics Scientific Production Center, L.A. Turbine, Empowering Brands and anonymous donors.
“It’s heartening to see our TPS partners’ concern and willingness to help,” said Martha Barton, director of exhibitor services at the Turbo Lab. “We are glad to be able to offer assistance to our friends in Houston as they continue to recover.”
TPS is the premiere conference for rotating equipment engineers and technicians worldwide, spanning oil and gas, petrochemical, chemical, power, aerospace, and water industries. The expert-selected technical program combined with an international exhibition is the perfect platform for networking and learning about new problem-solving methods and technologies.
TPS is organized by the Turbomachinery Laboratory, part of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station and The Texas A&M University System.
