In the May 2009 issue of Pit & Quarry Magazine, Editor-In-Chief Darren Constantino relayed how many aggregate producers have capital-equipment budgets that are small or at zero.

With aggregate demand finally starting to slowly pick up around Wisconsin, it means equipment that would have been replaced or repaired last winter, will again be pressed into use.

The article said, “One producer told us, “We’re preparing for higher-than-usual maintenance costs for equipment that normally would have been replaced because it has reached the end of its useful life.  We also expect higher-than-normal rental costs to replace broken equipment.”

The current economy eliminated the usual late-March aggregate rush for AR400 steel wear plate replacement parts.  It simply didn’t happen this year.  There is no doubt that we will be seeing many emergency wear plate orders with an urgency we have seldom seen before.

We can turn these materials around very quickly to assist when the breakdowns do happen.  Give me a call at (920) eight five eight -3252 and together we will do what it takes to get you running promptly.
