The Hiller Grand Opening

October 30, 2023


The Hiller grand opening of its new facility and location marks exciting news for the nuclear power industry.

As the energy demand continues to grow, the nuclear power industry is shifting from large base-load nuclear plants to smaller, more compact designs known as small modular reactors. With this shift comes the need for innovative solutions and technologies that can adapt to these new designs. According to recent data, the nuclear power market expects its value to reach $58.4 billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 3.5% from 2021 to 2030, highlighting the importance of staying ahead in this dynamic sector.

So, how are industry leaders adapting to these changes, and what does the future hold for flow technologies in the nuclear power industry?

In the latest episode of FlowCast, a podcast by Trillium Flow Technologies, hosted by Michelle Dawn Mooney, the grand opening of Hiller gets the spotlight treatment. Joining the conversation are Kevin McPherson, a General Manager with Trillium Flow Technologies, and Vince Elias, Global Sales Manager for Hiller, a Trillium Flow Technologies company.

  • The history and evolution of Hiller from its inception in the 1950s to its current role in the nuclear power industry
  • The driving forces behind Hiller’s decision to invest in facility relocation
  • How Hiller is adapting to the changing demands of the nuclear power market with its new facility

Kevin McPherson is the plant manager for US Valves and Hiller under Trillium Flow Technologies. McPherson has been with Trillium for eleven years. He has witnessed the company’s growth and is excited about the potential the new Hiller location brings.
