Thank you letter from the City Manager, James W. PinkertonCity of Kingston, Tennessee
City broke off a 2" air relief valve on a 16" ductile sewage pipeline with 45psi. Before the valve could be replaced we had to rush out and complete a 16" linestop. The linestop was successful with a 100% plug. On the left is the thank you letter from the City Manager, James W. Pinkerton

Thank you letter from the Vice President/Director Larry LarsonBank of America, San Francisco, CA
The Bank of America data center in San Francisco experienced a major emergency on their 16" and 12" chilled water main system for all their super computers. With millions of dollars at stake, the pressure was on. IFT completed 16" and 12" emergency linestops and helped change out the broken valves; repairing their systems without issue. This situation was so critical that Bank of America flew out all our equipment on their company jets from the Temecula Airport.

National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland

I just wanted to take a minute to thank and commend you on your team selection and the gentleman who performed the work out here at NIH for us last week. Tom and his partner were on time, and performed their work with the utmost professionalism. This is a very high profile project for my firm and for NIH and your technicians made us look very good and in fact helped us solve a big testing problem.
Again, thank you very much for helping us get this work done.

We were impressed with Jason, he represented your company very well on the job in Yuma. We’ve had vendors/workers in the past who show up, fumble around and are not totally familiar with their equipment. Not the case with Jason, he was professional, prepared and jumped right in and got started.
Thanks, Craig
