The History of the National Water Lift : From Pumps to Flight Control
MetadataShow full item record
What do the modern flight controls have in common with pumps? Nothing, except that they are built with the same care and precision that the pumps of yesteryear were built. Care and precision have been trademarks of the National Water Lift since its inception in 1909, when Roland Fairchild set out on his own to design and build his water lifts in Kalamazoo. The National Water Lift is a classic example of how a company must adapt to change in order to survive. A. company must be aware of pertinent events going on outside of its four walls and be able to anticipate the outcomes of those events. The history of any company depends, to a large extent on political-and historical:-events on local, national and even.international levels.
