There’s an old saying at Allen Engineering Corp. (AEC) that the World of Concrete (WOC) trade show is a good indicator of how successful a year will be. If WOC 2015 is any indication, this year will be one for the record books!
Though the beginning of the trip began with rain, it quickly turned into blue skies with gorgeous spring-like weather – and the show matched the weather. Customers (both current and future) flocked to the Allen Booth to see the latest and greatest from AEC as we introduced our new line of Value Premium (VP) blades and the re-introduction of a successful old friend – our twin-engine riding trowel – the HP105. We also brought the usual suspects along for the ride including our recently added line of Site Prep Equipment and two members of the Paving family – our Model 6036 Bridge Deck Finisher and 255CD Triple Roller Tube Paver.
Whether customers were taking a riding trowel for a spin on our concrete demo slab or simply saying "Hello" underneath the Allen tent, a great time was had by all. It’s truly astounding to think that this was our 38th appearance at the World of Concrete show but we know we wouldn’t be able to do it without the support and business of our loyal customers. We can’t thank our customers enough for the strong turnout. Because of you, we had a record-breaking show and easily eclipsed our sales and lead goals. We had a great time with everyone while in Las Vegas and we look forward to next year. Until then, here’s to a fantastic 2015!
