Noria Event Can Help You Reach Your New Year’s Goals

Paul V. Arnold

What’s your professional resolution for 2011? Is it to get certified as a Machine Lubricant Analyst or Machine Lubrication Technician? Is it to revamp your plant’s lubrication practices or lube storage area? Is it to learn more about identifying and eliminating varnish deposits or contaminants? How about to increase the uptime of your site’s mission-critical equipment? Or, perhaps, to incorporate lean tools and techniques to eliminate waste and unnecessary costs within your organization?

Noria Corporation can help you with these and many other New Year’s resolutions when you attend our RELIABLE PLANT 2011 conference and exhibition on April 19-21 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio.

Trust us at Noria to deliver an event that meets your specific needs. RELIABLE PLANT 2011 will be our 12th annual conference and exhibition. We know how to build a world-class educational event that provides you with best practices from a myriad of best-in-class resources. Industrial professionals from 44 states and 21 countries attended RELIABLE PLANT 2010, and we expect the attendee totals to keep on growing.

As was the case at last year’s event, RELIABLE PLANT 2011 will feature three educational tracks: Lubrication Excellence, Reliability World and Lean Manufacturing.
