AMERICAN Flow Control Does It Again: “AMERICAN Landscape” Ad Wins Best of Show Advertising Award

For the second time in three years, AMERICAN Flow Control has been recognized by the American Water Works Association (AWWA) for its advertising efforts. The “AMERICAN Landscape” ad, initially published in 2015, received the Bronze Award for Best of Show Advertising in the Journal – AWWA. The ad features the Waterous hydrant set in Main Street USA or the heart of the American Landscape.

To determine the winners, judges reviewed all of the ads in Journal AWWA, OpFlow and Sourcebook in 2015. After narrowing it down to less than 20 ads, utility judges picked winners based on the ad’s visual appeal, impact and message delivery. Award winners were recognized at this year’s AWWA Annual Conference and Exposition June 20-22, in Chicago, Illinois.

“In today’s information driven society, it is an honor to be recognized for standing out and making a positive impact with your message,” said Derek Scott, marketing and technical manager for AMERICAN Flow Control. “It’s also a challenge we don’t take lightly. Everywhere we go people tell us they have seen our iconic brands of hydrants in cities, parks and historical sites. We often receive photos from customers and friends who have taken a picture with one of our hydrants. We are proud to be a small part of the American landscape.”

AMERICAN Flow Control is a division of AMERICAN Cast Iron Pipe, headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama. AMERICAN manufactures ductile iron pipe, spiral-welded steel pipe, valves and hydrants for the waterworks industry and steel pipe for the oil and gas industries. Its diversified product line also includes static castings and high performance fire pumps.
