A Look at the Susan G. Komen® Memorial

Posted by Abby Meister on Aug 14, 2014 11:30:00 AM

A few weeks ago we announced our partnership with the Susan G. Komen® Memorial on our Pink Tailgate Initiative. From July to December of 2014 every customer ordering a PHIL Autogate® Tailgate has the opportunity to opt into the Pink Tailgate Initiative. For each Pink Tailgate purchased, 5% of the proceeds will go to the Susan G. Komen Memorial and each tailgate will be outfitted in pink, a ribbon on the back. Now, you might be thinking to yourself, “what exactly is the Susan G. Komen Memorial, what does it do, and why should I care about it?” Let us answer some of your questions.

20140813_-_PNKtg

We seriously cannot wait for a pack of these pink gates to be roaming around...

What is the Susan G. Komen Memorial?

The Susan G. Komen Memorial is a foundation founded by Nancy Brinker (after making a promise to her sister Susan Komen who died after a 3-year battle with cancer in 1982) to improve breast cancer research and awareness.  After her sister’s passing, Nancy made it her goal to bring awareness to the public, and more specifically women, and turn breast cancer patients into survivors rather than victims. Since 1982, Komen has played a crucial role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer and has transformed how the world talks about and treats the disease.

What does the Susan G. Komen Memorial do?

Today, Komen has invested more than $2.5 billion in the fight against breast cancer, funding research, community health outreach, advocacy, and awareness and prevent programs in more than 30 countries. It is the global leader in the fight against breast cancer and has scored major victories along the way.  Komen has brought breast cancer awareness and research into national spotlight and now the federal government devotes more than $850 million per year to breast cancer research (they only spent $30 million in 1982). Awareness levels and early detection leading to effective treatment plans have also greatly increased, which has lead to a 34 percent decline in breast cancer mortality in the U.S. since 1990.

Why should I care?

1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, which has a terrifying lack of zeros following that lonely 8. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women – and the second leading cause of death among women. Each year 220,000 women are estimated to be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die. While it’s more common in women, men are also at risk: 2,150 estimated to be diagnosed with approximately 410 dying each year.

Komen has worked tirelessly since 1982 to boost research and prevention awareness. 3 million breast cancer survivors are currently alive in the U.S. It’s the largest group of cancer survivors in the U.S. In 1980 the 5-year survival rate of women who were diagnosed with early stage breast cancer was about 74 percent. Through prevention awareness and effective treatment methods, that number is 99 percent. Our goal is to make a contribution and be a part of all the amazing things the Susan G. Komen Memorial is doing.

PHIL's Annual Peoria Chiefs Game

Posted by Abby Meister on Aug 12, 2014 10:00:00 AM

All of us associates had a great time at the Peoria Chiefs’ game this past Saturday (8/9) as they battled the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. It was PHIL’s annual trip to watch our local minor league team play and we all had a blast and enjoyed the free food and meeting family members of coworkers. The kids even had a craft table full of all kinds of fun things to do!

Pink Tailgate Initiative

Posted by Josh Swank on Jul 29, 2014 3:33:00 PM

Charitable giving and making an impact in our community is a core value of family-owned Philippi-Hagenbuch, Inc. or PHIL.  Our team members sit on a variety of boards. Pat Hagenbuch is a member of the Board of Directors for the Hult Center for Healthy Living, a community health organization that focuses on cancer programs, and Danette (Hagenbuch) Swank serves on the Foundation Council for the OSF Saint Francis Foundation, which provides advisory leadership for philanthropic efforts such as cancer prevention, research and awareness. In fact, the majority of the Hagenbuch family is either currently or formerly involved in medical-based philanthropies and have been over the past five decades.  Last summer, when Danette Swank (third generation family member to lead PHIL) was named as President, it was important to her that the values PHIL was founded upon by her father LeRoy Hagenbuch and grandfather L.B. Philippi would continue to be cornerstones of the business. 

20140723_-_Breast_Cancer_Awareness_TGPHIL‘s headquarters in Peoria, IL was also the hometown of Susan G. Komen. The global breast cancer movement started with a promise by Suzy’s sister Nancy Brinker that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. Through a series of Race for the Cure events dedicated to raising funds and awareness, Susan G. Komen® has become the global leader in the fight against breast cancer, having funded more than $2.2 billion in research and life-saving community health programs.

Philippi-Hagenbuch, Inc. is proud to announce its partnership with the Peoria-based Susan G. Komen Memorial Affiliate to raise awareness and fight for a cure. From July through December 2014, every customer that orders a PHIL Autogate® Tailgate – either direct or through their off-highway truck dealer – will be have the option to choose whether they would like to take part in PHIL’s “Pink Tailgate Initiative. For each Pink Tailgate purchased, PHIL will donate 5% of the proceeds to Susan G. Komen Memorial; each tailgate will be outfitted in pink, and adorned with a ribbon on the back.

Six Major Myths about EPA's Proposed Carbon Regulations

Posted by Josh Swank on Jun 27, 2014 8:00:00 AM

Last week, I had the opportunity to hear a representative from the American Coalition For Clean Coal Electricity speak at the Wyoming Mining Association's Annual Meeting in Jackson Hole, WY.  One of the primary interests I had in attending the meeting this year was to hear the thoughts from the industry about Obama's proposed carbon regulations.

Interestingly enough, there was a breakout group that had a discussion specifically about this typic where the content from below was provided by the ACCCE.  In situations like what the coal industry is experiencing now, I like to think of a quote that a wise man used to say to me: "There are three sides to every story - there is your side, there is their side, and there is the truth."

I am not an expert at political science, but it is part of our business to stay abreast of changing regulatory landscapes as they can impact our business.  Below is a summary of the six myths discussed last week, all of which I found interesting.  As with everything, there are most likely three sides to this story... If you would like a PDF of the entire six myths, you can download it here.

EPA_CO2_Proposal_Chart

MYTH #1: The Proposal will prevent global climate change.

FACT: The proposal will have practically no affect on global climate change.

Here is the main reason why the proposal will not prevent global climate change: U.S. power plants are responsible for a small fraction (4%) of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.  EPA's proposal will reduce global GHG emissions by a tiny amount (less than 1%) at a cost, according to the EPA, of $4.2 billion per year.  This insignificant reduction in global GHG emissions means that:

  • Atmospheric CO2 concentrations will be reduced by less than 1%.
  • Global average temerapture increase will be reduced by 0.016 Farenheit.
  • Sea level rise will be reduced by 1/100th of an inch, which is the thickness of three sheets of paper.

 

MYTH #2: The proposal will prevent asthma and heart attacks.

FACT: This is a bait and switch tactic.

Because the EPA proposal will have virtually no effect on global climate change (MYTH #1), EPA is claiming health benefits for reducing ozone and particulate matter, pullutants that have been tightly regulated under the Clean Air Act for decades to ensure that air quality is safe.  Moreover, EPA is required to revise these existing air quality regulations periodically if they do not protect public health.

In addition, EPA's estimates of health benefits are controversial and have been questioned by health experts.  EPA itself recognizes numerous uncertainties in these estimates in the RIA.

 

MYTH #3: The proposal will reduce energy bills.

FACT: This is misleading, at best

EPA acknowledges that nationwide average electricity rates woould increase by roughly 6% in 2020 and 3% in 2030.  (A nationwide average rate increase might look relatively small, but it masks substantially higher increases in individual stats>)  At the same time, EPA claims the total cost that consumers pay for electricity will fall udner its proposal.  However, this lower total cost is deceptive because it assumes that consumers will reduce their electricity consumption by at least 10%.  In short, consumders are forced to pay higher electricity rates, but use less electricity.

 

MYTH #4: The proposal will create jobs.

FACT: This is a common claim about many EPA rules, but it's not true.

Here are a few of the reasons why this claim about jobs creation is a myth:

  • More comprehensive projectiosn of the employment impacts of a program similar to EPA's proposal shows as many as 178,000 lost jobs per year.
  • EPA claimis that its proposal will create jobs in the electric power production and fuel extraction sectors of the economy in 2020, but this is due to temporary construction jobs.  Closer scrutiny of EPA's analysis shows these sectors are projected to lose an average of 47,000 to 49,000 job-years from 2017-2030.
  • EPA did not attepmt to quantify job losses due to higher energy prices, although EPA seems to acknowledge there woudl be job loses.

 

As you can see, the above four myth's are pretty substantial.  To read about the additional two myth's, expound upon the myth's above and access the sources, download a copy of ACCCE's paper here.

3 Ways PHIL Rear Eject Bodies are Transforming Mining & Construction

Posted by Abby Meister on Jun 24, 2014 9:29:13 AM

Entering the mining and construction industries several years ago, the patented PHIL Rear Eject is relatively new to the mining and construction scene when compared to traditional end-dump bodies. While it’s still one of the “new guys”, the PHIL Rear Eject has no problem showing what differentiates it from its end-dump counterparts:

1. More Control

Unlike standard dump bodies, PHIL Rear Eject bodies don’t use gravity to get the load out of the bed of the body. It instead uses a hydraulic system to push a ram horizontally through the body to move the material to the back and out the end. This system gives the drivers complete control over speed and quantity of material being discharged, as well as how the material gets dumped. The material can be dumped in a normal pile, like any end-dump body would dump..

20140417_-_RE_line

PHIL’s Rear Eject system also allows operators the ability to dump on the move. Since the vertical center of gravity isn’t changing when dumping, chances for roll-over or hitting something the driver can’t see decrease drastically. Dumping on the move also helps with grading, as the material is being dumped, the driver will slowly drive forward, leaving a line of material that a dozer won’t have to spread around later.

2. Less Limitations 

With a standard end-dump body, there are many limitations. One of area PHIL Rear Eject Bodies have fewer limitations in is safety. Since gravity is used to get the load out of the body, the vertical center of gravity shifts with the body lifts up and increases the possibility of roll-over and of the driver hitting something he can’t see.

20140417_-_RE_dump

 The end-dump bodies are also limited in where they can operate whereas the PHIL Rear Eject is not. Underground quarries and mines are notorious for low ceilings which can force operators into pricey short term options. Covered hoppers can cause frequent body damage if too low for the truck being used. Rear ejects provide a permanent solution; the mobility of a dump truck without needing the same height clearance.

 3. Increased Production

PHIL Rear Ejects make the whole operation more efficient and increase production. One way this is done is by reducing the cycle time on each load. Since the operator isn’t waiting for the body to come back down on a Rear Eject, the driver can leave immediately after the material is out. The blade will retract on the way to get the next load, cutting off unnecessary dead time..

20140417_-_RE_mountains

It also saves other parts of production work. Since the PHIL Rear Eject can dump in a spread out line, valuable time doesn’t have to be spent spreading piles later on. The fact that PHIL Rear Ejects need minimal maintenance – and therefore drastically limits downtime - is just icing on the production cake.

Currently operating many countries worldwide in operations such as above ground and underground mining, construction, refuse, steel mills, and power plant locations, the PHIL Rear Eject has been a unique, but much needed addition to the mining and construction industries’ equipment line-ups.

Spotlight: PHIL Product Videos

Posted by Abby Meister on Jun 5, 2014 10:44:40 AM

Across the board of our internet presence, it has always been our goal to provide a steady stream of visuals of PHIL products. Sure, we can talk about their benefits and unique features all day long, but having a picture along puts that information in perspective and doesn't leave any benefit or unique feature of our products up to imagination.

20140605_-_Youtube_1

With the goal of providing visual representation of what PHIL products can do in mind, PHIL's Youtube channel was created several years ago. The Philippi-Hagenbuch, Inc. Youtube Channel has videos of PHIL equipment in action, ranging from rear eject bodies to water tanks to tailgates and several other products as well.

20140605_-_Youtube_2

The videos on the PHIL channel have been posted because they showcase each PHIL product and are often products customers would like to see in action. We've linked a few of them in this post as well as other posts, but to check out all of the PHIL videos, go take a gander at the PHIL youtube channel. Keep in mind, we don't have videos of every product up, but if you let us know what you're interested in, we'll put your request on our list of videos to shoot!

The History of PHIL's Wellness Program

Posted by Maria Allen on Apr 15, 2014 11:00:00 AM

 

The PHIL/WEL program, as we know it today, began 7 years ago. Philippi-Hagenbuch, Inc. partnered with Optimum Health Solutions, a workplace wellness company, to address the health concerns of our associates and promote a wellness community at work.

A wellness committee was formed to work directly with Optimum Health and develop ideas to encourage wellness in the workplace. There was an optional wellness screening that included personal information concerning the healthy habits of associates or lack of, such as diet, sleep patterns, smoking, etc. We also had blood work done to assess our cholesterol and other levels. From this information a plan was developed that included Optimum Health giving presentations about various topics to encourage developing healthy habits.

20140415_-_PHILWEL_Mind

One such habit is keeping your mind healthy, and it gets its own workout during the PHIL/WEL Olympics.

The wellness committee, nicknamed The PHIL/WEL Group, met separately and with Optimum Health representatives. We developed plans for fun activities to encourage the healthy changes mentioned in the presentations and to initiate the motivation to change.

Over the years PHIL/WEL has promoted and introduced several weight loss competitions with the prizes being funds to purchase health/workout equipment. We have also had several Bocce Tournaments and Ping Pong Tournaments. We have had “Wellness Wednesdays”. This was when a member of the committee would bring a “healthy” snack to be shared by all employees. But our most enduring and enjoyed event has been and is our “PHIL/WEL Olympics”.

20140415_-_PHILWEL_HillBillyHS

The PHIL/WEL Olympics is a day to celebrate health and wellness and enjoy a day in the sun with our coworkers!

The PHIL/WEL Olympics is a day of fun in the sun. In the beginning the committee chose the menu for lunch and did all the preparation, focusing on healthy foods. Next we contacted gyms, chiropractors, massage therapists, health food stores and any other vendors we could think of to come and set up tables for the associates to visit during the games. Because we did have games!  Bocce, bags, hillbilly golf, etc., and fun was had by all. This fun day has progressed to choosing a healthy menu from a local business and the meal being catered and the games and vendors have evolved and improved over the years.

The goal of Philippi-Hagenbuch, Inc. and the PHIL/WEL Committee is to improve the overall health of our associates; which in turn makes for a happier and more productive working staff.

Product Spotlight: Bottom Dump Trailer

Posted by Abby Meister on Apr 10, 2014 9:39:00 AM

Or, Meet the PHIL St. Patrick's Day Mascot!


PHIL’s patented line of HiVol® trailers can potentially double production over standard rear dump trucks with properly matched tractor/trailer combinations. Designed around your operation, PHIL’s trailers take into consideration your production targets, material parameters, haul or operation requirements, and any height or width restrictions within your facility. PHIL’s extensive line of trailers offers the versatility to accommodate and material or equipment haulage environment or need. Trailers are available in Rear Eject, Bottom Dump, or Lowboy designs, but today we’re going to focus on the PHIL Bottom Dump Trailer.

This year the PHIL Bottom Dump was chosen to be PHIL’s St. Paddy’s Day mascot and looked smashing while mascoting on (and no, ‘mascoting’ is sadly not currently acknowledged by any dictionary). Why did we choose the Bottom Dump, you may ask, when there are so may cool PHIL products to choose from? Well, we chose it because the PHIL Bottom Dump trailer is a unique product with state-of-the-art design that is unmatched in quality and construction by any other company in the industry. Now you might be wondering what makes the PHIL Bottom Dump so different than all the other bottom dumps out there.

Mascoting_on

For starters, the actual design shape of the Bottom Dump really differentiates it from other bottom dumps in the industry.  Most bottom dumps have to taper so that the material will actually dump out between the tires, but this can cause major tire issues. The tapered bottom dump leaves high windrows that rub along the side of the tires, rather than the less vulnerable tread.  The PHIL design dumps practically as wide as the tires, which means the tread with take the brunt of the impact from the material dumped. Since other bottom dumps in the industry have to make up their volume somehow, they are often made taller, causing problems during loading by not giving the operators much room to maneuver without hitting the sides, in addition to a higher Center of Gravity (CoG).  To further minimize tire damage, PHIL offers an optional hydraulically controlled strikeoff blade that helps to  grade and smooth out the material before it is driven over, thus leveling out the high spots and creating a smooth surface for the rear tires to travel over.

BD-comparisonAI

Another distinctive feature is the 6-way King-pin hitch PHIL uses rather than a standard ball style fifth wheel hitch. Most standard hitches are cast when made, but PHIL fabricates each hitch individually, which includes forging pieces giving it a tighter grain structure. Each 6-way King-pin hitch is crafted with attention to detail and gets thoroughly inspected. The design is not only safer, but allows for complete mobility. The hitch can move side to side, front to back, and up and down. PHIL’s 6-way King-pin hitch can also easily convert a rear-dump truck in to a tractor, so purchasing a special vehicle to pull the trailer is not necessary.

Clamshellsteps

PHIL Bottom Dumps come in two distinctive designs: Sliding Door Bottom Dump and Clamshell Door Bottom Dump.  The Clamshell Door Bottom Dump is excellent for a straight dump, like stockpiling, dumping into hoppers, and windrowing. Employing an over-center door lock for fail-safe operation especially during maintenance, the Clamshell Door operates both doors with a single hydraulic cylinder and provides secure over-center door closing.  The over-center door closing is a mechanism that operates separately from the hydraulic cylinder, increasing the safety of the Bottom Dump. If the hydraulics go out or malfunction, the doors will remain closed. When the doors are closed there is no pressure from the load placed on the cylinder, cutting down on unnecessary maintenance. The Clamshell Doors are best used for materials that will flow and that will be dumped into a hopper, like shot rock, salt, gravel, coal, etc.

PHIL_BD-slidingdoor_Cat772B

The PHIL Sliding Door Bottom Dump is great to haul, dump, and spread in a single pass. The Sliding Door is split in half, so one half dumps at one time. A unique material strike-off blade is an optional attachment that spreads the load evenly. This product is excellent for dumping material in lifts; the strike-off blade enables material lifts to be adjusted from 8 to 18 inches, minimizing the need for additional leveling. The PHIL Sliding Door Bottom Dump is ideal for use in power generation, material blend operations, reclamation, mine refuse, and ash handling operations.

Whew! This is just the scratching the surface of how a PHIL Bottom Dump Trailer can help your operation. With a unique design that makes it a stand-out in the industry and the customizations based on need, the PHIL Bottom Dump is a product that can make a big difference in operation efficiency. That’s not even including all the special features that make it so much safer to operate than other bottom dumps in the industry! Bottom line (pun intended) we chose the PHIL Bottom Dump Trailer as our PHIL St. Patrick’s Day mascot because it’s pretty darn cool.
