The future at AEC is very promising. Here are just a few reasons why I am optimistic as we look to the coming years.
AEC is blessed with a great team of people, both at headquarters in Paragould and out in the sales field. They are highly trained and motivated to do their job with excellence every day. As we grow both our revenue and production capabilities, we are committed to attracting the best and the brightest to join the team at Allen.
Our offering of Allen Branded Concrete Equipment is more extensive today than any time in our company’s 50 year history. We offer 100’s of unique models of concrete equipment across 20 distinct product lines. Currently, all our products fall into three broad categories: concrete placing, concrete finishing, and concrete paving equipment.
AEC has implemented a new approach to marketing and selling our equipment for 2013 with good initial results. This new approach involves going to three distinct distribution channels: Concrete Equipment Dealers, Paving Equipment Dealers and Rental Centers. This new distribution strategy is part of our plan to significantly increase our revenues over the next five years, and this translates to more innovative products to come out of R&D for our valued customers.
Finally, we continue to engineer new equipment solutions for the concrete and general contractor. We will again have a full stable of new products to introduce at the World of Concrete 2014. Look for Allen to be moving into some new product categories in the next year. Stay tuned, we will have much to share in early ’14.
