Pier Parisi’s career path gave him a front-row seat to the technological advancements of the natural gas industry. He spent the earlier part of his career with Bently Nevada and GE before joining Dover and, currently, Apergy.
In September 2019, Compressor Product International (CPI) and Windrock, an Apergy company, began a commercial partnership, allowing the two companies to collaborate on monitoring and analytical technology (see COMPRESSORTECH2, November 2019, p. 23).
