Drexel Metals LLC and the United States Hispanic Contractors Association Form Strategic Alliance

Ivyland, PA (PRWEB) June 28, 2010

Drexel Metals LLC is very pleased to announce the formation of an important and unique strategic alliance with the United States Hispanic Contractors Association (USHCA).

Through a memorandum of understanding, Drexel Metals and the USHCA will jointly endorse and nationally promote Drexel Metals’ Association of Regional Manufacturers to the membership of the USHCA. Through this alliance, Drexel Metals will provide training to USHCA members in all aspects of metal roofing including, portable roll forming, installation techniques, as well as industry-specific marketing and promotion procedures.

Frank Fuentes, Chairman of the USHCA said, “The commitment Drexel Metals has made to the empowerment of our membership thorough the expansion of knowledge and the enhancement of capabilities will facilitate the growth and viability of contractors wishing to engage in the metal roofing industry. This extraordinary opportunity for the USHCA membership to share in cutting-edge technology will add practical skill-sets that compliment and expand our member’s trade specialties.”

Drexel Metals will also coordinate with the USHCA to conduct the OSHA ten-hour training program for its members and promoting safety as one of the highest joint priorities between Drexel Metals and the USHCA.

Mr. Fuentes noted that there are currently more than three million Hispanic construction workers in the United States, representing approximately 25% of the entire construction labor force. Mr. Fuentes further added, “Workplace injuries and fatalities continue to plague the construction industry and sadly, Hispanic workers account for the vast majority of those accidents. The USHCA is firmly committed to job site safety and to the implementation of sound safety practices in the workplace. Drexel Metals embraces the same philosophy as the USCHA on the importance of job site safety and the priority of providing current, effective and necessary safety training and continuing education to as many workers as possible. Through this partnership, Drexel Metals affirms its sincere commitment to the membership of the USHCA with both their technical training program and support of the continuation of the OSHA ten-hour safety marathon training workshops.”

Rob Waite, CEO of Drexel Metals stated, “We are proud of our strategic alliance with the USHCA which aligns our focus and priorities, and we believe this will be a long lasting partnership. We look forward to this association resulting in tangible outcomes to benefit the industry as a whole and program participants individually.”

Brian Partyka, President of Drexel Metals added, “In working to create this alliance with Mr. Fuentes, we saw the opportunity to benefit consumers, our members, the industry and our mutual interests. Drexel Metals is proud to sponsor such innovative programming for the membership of the USHCA and hope we can provide long-lasting and pragmatic solutions, addressing the urgent need for safety training and the expansion of business opportunities for contractors interested in the metal roofing industry.”

Drexel Metals and the United States Hispanic Contractors Association also want to extend their heartfelt thanks to former United States Attorney General, Alberto R. Gonzales who introduced the two entities and played a significant role in helping solidify the strategic partnership.

“I have been very impressed with Drexel Metals over the last few years and as I have continued to work to find ways to promote entrepreneurialism and self reliance in the Hispanic Community, I saw an opportunity to achieve this objective with Drexel Metals and the United States Hispanic Contractors Association”, said Mr. Gonzales.

Nola Profil, U.S.A. is Awarded its First United States Contract

(PRWEB) January 7, 2000

Swedish metal roofing and siding

products never before used in the U.S.A. will be installed on a 40,000 square foot Medical Complex in Troy, Michigan. This seven-unit condominium style complex is located West of Crooks Road, on the South side of Big Beaver Road. The work will be completed in April of 2000, said Remigius Zak, CEO and VP of Nola Profil, U.S.A.” This project will be a showplace of both our products and our workmanship. The 50 year guarantee on the materials and installation is traditionally unheard of in the metal roofing industry. Unlike your typical shingle or standard flat metal roof, NP ELIT roofs are made of Swedish steel, and are profiled (formed) to look like Spanish style terracotta. The metal is dipped in zinc, primed, painted and then coated with a specially engineered sealant to give it beauty and its extensive guarantee. An ice breaker shield is applied to the roof underlayment, then the metal panels are screwed onto a fabricated wooden grid, allowing air to flow under the metal roof. This process prevents condensation damage and direct heat to the roof’s wooden underlayment. The installtion of this innovative roof allows the structure to cool in the summer and stay warm in the winter. Old shingles are ultimetely vast mountains in landfill sites. NP metal roofs are recyclable. They reflect heat, repel snow and sealout rain. The roofs come in eight standard colors, or can be custom ordered in a color of your choice.This unique style of metal roof will look beautiful on both residential and commercial structures.”These NP ELIT metal roofs will have a real impact on the residential market. Consumers are tired of not having no real choice. It’s been either this type or style of shingle or that type of color and shingle. We have a product available that will outlast shingles, carry a longer guarantee, is safe for the environment and designed with beauty in mind. As the U.S. market grows, Nola Profil, U.S.A. may open a manufacturing plant in Michigan. We will be looking for interested distributors and installers

throughout the United States,said Mr.Zak. To reach Nola Profil, U.S.A; call 810-459-9524 or E-mail to: nolausa@earthlink.net

Adacel To Provide Precision Approach Radar Training Systems to United States Air Force

Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) November 13, 2005

Adacel, an industry leader in software integration, simulation development, and voice recognition technology, has signed a purchase agreement to provide its Precision Approach Radar (PAR) simulation and training module to the United States Air Force. The agreement is valued at more than $ 1.6 million (USD).

Under the terms of the agreement, Adacel will supply the Air Force with PAR capability for deployment in all of their 90 existing tower simulator systems (TSS) in operation throughout the world. This new addition to the TSS system serves to further enhance its capability by integrating a voice-controlled module capable of training controllers on all aspects of PAR skills and techniques without the use of pseudo pilots.

Adacel’s PAR simulator supplies the comprehensive set of phraseology necessary to provide control instructions to aircraft conducting various PAR and Airport Surveillance Radar Approaches (ASR). The upgraded TSS system visually displays the radar pattern and the 3-D “out-the-window” screens allow tower and radar trainees to visually see and understand what is happening to the aircraft during landing.

“Adacel is extremely pleased to have been awarded this contract. We appreciate our strong working relationship with the Air Force, and look forward to integrating the PAR capability into their tower simulator systems throughout the world. Our PAR module is a mission-critical training tool that deploying air traffic controllers can use to maintain and develop their skills,” states Fred Sheldon, Adacel’s CEO. “Until now, it was difficult to find a PAR system that could be seamlessly integrated with existing systems. After significant testing and development, we have created a tool that does just that.”

The Adacel PAR simulator will enable USAF air controllers to maintain their proficiency on PAR operations at all USAF locations – stateside and overseas. The PAR skill set is used primarily in contingency settings.

Adacel’s PAR simulator also is available as a standalone system capable of supporting both fixed and mobile deployment environments.

San Diego Plastic Surgery Practice Making a Splash in United Kingdom and Australia

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 22, 2010

San Diego based plastic surgery practice, Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa, was the focus of the reality series Addicted to Beauty, which aired last summer on the Oxygen and Bravo Networks. The show now has been picked up internationally in the UK and Australia.

Addicted to Beauty follows the inside story of Dianne York-Goldman, socialite and medi-spa expert, joining forces with well known and three-time “San Diego Top Doctor” plastic surgeon Dr. Gilbert Lee at his Changes Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa.

When Dianne brings her over-the-top employees from her previous spa to Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa the work place antics get out of control. As the pressure increases to get the spa up and running, personalities clash and chaos ensues. However, this group is no match for Melanie (aka, “Mel”), Dr. Lee’s no nonsense office manager who becomes fed up with Dianne’s staff.
