Ace DuraFlo Systems

Larry Gillanders is the co-founder of ACE DuraFloŽ Systems, LLC, the developer of patented ePIPEŽ technologies, which is a world leader in the small diameter pipe lining industry. He is also the CEO of Pipe Restoration Technologies, LLC, and its subsidiaries, which are the businesses that install the pipe lining technologies. Pipe Restoration Technologies is the parent company of the ePIPE product and worldwide group of installers that utilize the patented ePIPE process to restore pipes in-place.

An alternative to a destructive repipe, this process is achieved using an application of an epoxy barrier coating, which results in a restored, epoxy lined piping system. The process provides a remedy for pinhole leaks, epoxy lining, corrosion control and prevention of lead leaching from pipes without the destruction or disruption encountered by pipe replacements. PRT and its affiliated companies have locations throughout the United States, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Belgium, Spain and Mexico. He has developed multi-lingual international technical programs for ePIPE, and is the Director of Pipe Restoration Services in the United Kingdom and Director of ePIPE Espana in Spain.

Coming Up In The March Online Hotel Business Review




Feature Focus
Human Resources: Inspiring a Journey of Success
In an increasingly competitive environment where hotels are competing to attract, and more importantly, to keep top talent, Human Resource managers are realizing the need to focus on improving their Employee Experience. Smart managers are embracing the idea of Employee Wellness which translates into a system of physical, mental, emotional, and purposeful well-being. Some organizations are even providing free counseling for their employees and their dependents. The goal is to nurture, support and engage with their employees in a way that increases productivity, improves customer service, enhances loyalty, and creates a more harmonious work environment for all. Along with this development is the need for more effective, ongoing training. Many HR managers rely on external training firms for this, but there is a growing trend which taps the experience and expertise that already exists within the organization. For example, younger employees likely have greater knowledge of social media which an older generation might struggle with. Harnessing this peer-to-peer learning can be an efficient and cost effective way of increasing skills, and as a result, the knowledge transferred is likely to be more acceptable and relevant. Finally, HR managers need to foster an environment that empowers people and taps into their full potential, inspiring a personal journey of success. The March Hotel Business Review will take a look at some of the strategies and techniques that human resource directors are currently developing in order to achieve success.
