Many Thanks to Koffler Electric, the City of San Leandro, the San Leandro Chamber of Commerce for this special arrangement and to all who were able to participate! The tour gave a whole new level of appreciation for giant pumps, giant motors and giant mechanical repair! Photos are not typically allowed inside private facilities so if you want to see for yourself be sure to sign up for our next tour! Who knows where our next stop may take us as we delve further into the landscape of modern American manufacturing in the San Francisco STIR Program this summer 2016!
