Winner - 2022 Contest

Congratulations to Cody Carlin with SFT Welding Ltd.!

The winning photograph for the cover of the 2022 pipeline calendar was taken on the Trans Mountain Pipeline Project near Kamloops, British Columbia – Canada. Sections of pipe were being welded in the ditch before reaching the steep slopes.
The 2021 Pipeline calendar cover featured a Cat PL 87 pipelayer painted red, white and blue as a symbol of unity and support for the pipeline industry.  It is a reminder that we are all in this together and that PLM continues to be a solid resource for the global mainline pipeline construction community.  2020 also marked 15 years for PLM as a Cat dealer who serves the pipeline industry.  The monthly pictures feature a collection of projects that PLM had the privilege of being involved in over the years. We look forward to many more years as your global partner for pipeline solutions.
