My Visit to P&H Mining in Milwaukee WI
« on: October 25, 2013, 10:25:05 PM »

Just thought I would share - I visited a few of customers this whole week (just got back home in Boston) who use our design software and one of them just happened to be one of my favorites from a large scale engineering standpoint - P&H Mining (Joy Global)









... and just this afternoon when I was driving back near the Milwaukee airport I stopped for lunch and ran into this guy which some like to relate to a religious coincidence.

I sat down at the bar near an older gentlemen who just happened to be wearing an old P&H Mining hat. Meet "Harvey" who has worked and retired from P&H with 44 years of service (he started when he was 21) whose son just retired with 33 years.

We talked for over 2 hours from everything to old days of how the company operated, to when he was an early teen and remembering president Roosevelt declaring war on the Japanese on the radio in 1941. He missed the draft to war by just days and went on to meet his wife who just recently passed away.... He said it was great to talk to today son, you made my day. I replied, no sir, you made mine! It was honor to meet you Harvey. What a great way to end the trip!
