Good Morning Northwest!
On Tuesday of this week, our employees set their alarms much earlier than normal and arrived at work while it was just getting light. The reason? To be part of a live broadcast on local ABC affiliate KXLY-TV from 5 to 7 a.m. Mark Peterson of "Good Morning Northwest" did his weather segments from Sterling International and showed the audience different aspects of our business.
We started out in our insect research lab, demonstrating some of the equipment including the Electro Antenna Detector (EAD). Our R&D Director, Dr. Qing-He Zhang, had a live wasp antenna hooked up to the EAD and showed how we test different scents to get a reaction from the antenna.
After doing a number of cut-ins from the lab, we moved out to the manufacturing area where we showed the injection molding machines and the product assembly lines.
In this photo, Mark is standing in front of the injection molding machine that makes the cones for the Reusable Yellowjacket Trap. He's about to interview Steve Murphy, our Director of Engineering.
Later, Mark talked to V.P. of Operations Gerry Simpson about the Japanese Beetle Trap -- a product unfamiliar to many in this part of the country because Japanese Beetles have not invaded Washington state.
We ended the 6:00 hour by showing the finished product in our floor displays. Mark talked with President Rod Schneidmiller about Sterling's drive to collect 2-liter pop bottles and create a new product using post-consumer recycled material.
Being part of a live broadcast was a new experience for many at Sterling. We want to thank KXLY and Mark Peterson for visiting us and being so great to work with.
