TBC Adds 2 Natural Gas Industry Experts
The Blythe Company is proud to welcome our newest additions, Wally Todd & Adam Shumate.
In 2018, TBC acquired Wally’s company, System Valve Services, Inc. Wally led valve
inspection, maintenance, repair and service catering to natural gas utilities in 17 states and the District of Columbia.
The crossover between our two companies made the merger a natural fit. Interstate natural gas pipeline companies, major natural gas distribution companies, municipal utilities, valve manufacturers and contractors all entrust Wally Todd and The Blythe Company for their service needs.
Mr. Todd is also a noted speaker, giving valve-related presentations for the natural gas industry since 1997. He has lectured on topics from valve maintenance & repair to valve identification and operation.
As an experienced valve consultant & trainer for The Blythe Company, Wally Todd provides knowledge and expertise regarding the operation, maintenance, and repair of pipeline valves.
Adam Shumate brings more than 15 years of leadership experience in transmission and distribution in the natural gas industry. His skillsets with measurement, telemetry, SCADA, service and design will contribute well to the solution-based services that The Blythe Company has long represented.
Raised in York County, SC, Shumate earned his BA from The University of South Carolina Aiken.
Committed to representing himself and family well, Shumate leads and contributes to various industry and community organization boards of directors.
