Program to be provide by member, Alan Roth from American Hydro.
MorOur speaker will be Rotarian Alan Roth, president of American Hydro Corporation, who will present the past, present and future of “that other” hydraulic turbine manufacturer in York. Born of the acquisition by the Voith Group of the Hydro Turbine Division of Allis-Chalmers Corporation in 1986, four prominent engineers from Allis-Chalmers started with a desk and a computer and, over the next 25 years, built a $50 million annual business upgrading and rehabilitating hydraulic turbines, primarily in North America. In that timeframe, the company sold equipment to such well known facilities as Hoover Dam and Grand Coulee and, more locally, Holtwood Dam and York Haven. The founders sold the business to the Weir Group of Scotland in 2010 who, in turn, sold it to Wartsila Corporation of Finland in 2016. Alan earned his BS in Civil Engineering from Bucknell University in 1976. He has spent his entire 42-year career in the hydroelectric industry, in engineering, sales and executive positions.e details to follow.
