I think we all could use a vacation from the three day Fourth of July Holiday that most of us took part in. I know that I’m tired and ready for another weekend. Some sad news to report as we learned on Tuesday that Pete Pristach passed away last week. Some of Pete’s industry’s accomplishments include: NAEC’s 1979 Man of the Year and serving as the President of the NAEC from 1975-1976. Pete also served on the board from 1973-1976. I encourage you to sign his online guest book. He contributed quite a bit to the elevator industry and he will be missed by many.
