ARVADA, Colo., August 19, 2021–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Barber-Nichols LLC (BN), a wholly owned subsidiary of Graham Corporation (NYSE: GHM), hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of its innovative new 43,000 sq ft, world-class manufacturing facility.

BN worked with Ware Malcomb and Brinkmann Constructors to design and build the advanced manufacturing facility to support BN’s growing customer programs.

BN has experienced solid growth over the last several years by designing and developing critical subsystems for a variety of applications including undersea power & propulsion systems, thermal management systems, space-based applications, and advanced power generation & energy storage. To facilitate its growth, BN acquired property adjacent to the current campus and completed construction of the new building in early 2021. To support its growth plans, BN is looking for qualified machinists, technicians, and engineers from the Denver-metro area interested in being a part of a dynamic organization with an eye on the future to add to its growing team.
Congressman Perlmutter noted, "It was a privilege to join Barber-Nichols as they celebrate the opening of their new manufacturing facility in Arvada. The completion of this building is a great milestone, and I commend the Barber-Nichols team on their success as they continue to expand operations into a diverse array of industries and create good-paying jobs for our community."
Matt Malone, General Manager of BN, commented, "Our new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility has successfully transformed our campus vision into reality. A special thank you to Ware Malcomb for the purpose-centric design, Brinkmann Constructors for the flawless construction execution and all our employees for the novel layout and process flow ideas. The new facility successfully links the office and manufacturing environments to enhance team collaboration, co-locates critical equipment to improve utilization and deliver velocity, and also integrates new advanced manufacturing equipment to further niche capabilities. Our next phase will focus on implementing a skills-based training program for our employees to bring additional education and learning opportunity inside these walls. The facility showcases our continued investment in advanced manufacturing in Colorado and will ensure prosperity for our community, employees, suppliers and customers."

The price of Uber rides has spiked as the taxi-hailing app struggles to match soaring demand with a supply of drivers.
Aluminum prices have jumped to the highest in 10 years, driven skyward in part by a crackdown on energy usage in China. It’s been a different story for companies like Reynolds Consumer Products—the kitchen-wrap maker’s CFO recently told analysts that it’s facing hundreds of millions of dollars in increased costs from higher prices for resin and aluminum. Heineken’s CFO says commodity costs including aluminum have shot up “very, very materially in the last couple of months.”

Investing in the stock market is a fantastic way to build long-term wealth. While the broader S&P 500 has returned close to 10% annually over time, there are certain individual stocks that provide even more benefit to shareholders in the form of steady and growing dividends. In addition to the potential for stock price appreciation, Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO), PepsiCo (NASDAQ: PEP), and Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX) are three popular food and beverage stocks that dividend fans should seriously consider.
The commodity hit a new three-year high on Friday as Hurricane Ida approached, and natural gas stocks responded. That's a change from the past few months.

The Russell 1000 Index is a market-capitalization-weighted index of the 1,000 largest publicly traded companies in the U.S. It represents approximately 92% of the total market capitalization of all listed stocks in the U.S. equity market. Value investing is a factor-based investing strategy that involves picking stocks that you believe are trading for less than what they are intrinsically worth, usually by measuring the ratio of the stock's price to one or more fundamental business metrics. Value investors believe that if a business is cheap compared to its intrinsic value, in this case as measured by its P/E ratio, the stock price may rise faster than others as the price comes back in line with the worth of the company.

Growth investing is one of two main fundamental investment strategies, the other being value investing. Investors employing a growth investing strategy will typically place the majority of their portfolio in growth stocks, which are shares of companies whose earnings or sales are expected to grow at a significantly faster rate than the rest of the market. The primary way investors expect to earn profits from growth investing is through capital gains.

(Bloomberg) — Oil edged higher in New York as offshore explorers assess damage from Hurricane Ida and as investors shift focus to an OPEC+ meeting that could see more supply added to the market. Futures in New York were trading just over $69 a barrel after falling as much as 1.6% earlier. While Gulf of Mexico producers had shut in about 1.7 million barrels a day of crude output ahead of the storm, refineries in Louisiana may be slower to bring back operations.“The market is regarding the impact

The surcharge is expected to bec

The Australian government is considering new laws that would tighten the regulation of digital payment services by tech giants such as Apple and Alphabet's Google. Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said he would "carefully consider" that and other recommendations from a government-commissioned report into whether the payments system had kept pace with advances in technology and changes in consumer demand. Services such as Apple Pay, Google Pay and China's WeChat Pay, which have grown rapidly in recent years, are not currently designated as payment systems, putting them outside the regulatory system.
Natural-gas futures were on the rise, extending a climb to a three-year high, and crude-oil prices were mixed in electronic trading late Sunday as Hurricane Ida, which was downgraded to a Category 3 storm, delivered sustained winds of 150 mph to Louisiana and knocked out power in New Orleans.
