Putzmeister America, Inc. and Allentown Shotcrete Technology, Inc. Launch New Web Site Initiatives

STURTEVANT, WI (July 28, 2008) – Putzmeister America, Inc. and Allentown Shotcrete Technology, Inc. have recently launched numerous web site updates to www.putzmeister.com and www.allentownshotcrete.com.

To help current and potential customers become more familiar with Putzmeister America’s equipment and history, Putzmeister America created its new Video Library on its homepage.

“Our new online Video Library gives easier and more convenient access to our current and potential customers to see behind the scenes at Putzmeister,” notes Bill Dwyer, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Putzmeister America. “Our goal for all of our web sites is to always have information readily available at our customers’ fingertips.”

The library currently includes the following videos: Putzmeister Corporate Overview, Putzmeister Pro-Tech, Putzmeister Steady End Hose, Putzmeister Telebelt® and “Journey of the Juggernaut –Putzmeister 70Z-Meter.”

In addition to the new Video Library, Putzmeister America has also launched its new Fuel Saving Hot Tips page on its homepage which features Putzmeister employee-authored articles focusing on fuel efficiency. Articles include “Power or Fuel Efficiency,” “Fact or Friction,” “Best Practices,” and “Service for Savings.” The new page also includes a letter from Dave Adams, President & CEO of Putzmeister America, in which he addresses fuel efficiency and boom pumps. This can be accessed directly at: www.putzmeister.com/fuel.

“High fuel prices are affecting every aspect of our lives and seems to be a harsh reality that won’t be going away anytime soon,” says Dwyer. “We’re proud to introduce to our web site this new, objective series related specifically to the escalating cost of diesel fuel. The articles are intended to help the industry deal with one of the most important issues businesses face today. It’s our goal that every concrete pump operator and owner will take the opportunity to use this tool to improve their company’s operations and bottom line.”

“We also want our customers to know,” adds Dwyer, “that given the hard times the industry is facing, we understand that purchasing a brand new piece of equipment may not be possible right now. Putzmeister Pro-Tech can help with a range of available used models. The complete inventory of boom pumps and Telebelts® available can be viewed online at www.pmaprotech.com.”

Putzmeister Pro-Tech is a team of dedicated professionals that restore truck-mounted boom pumps, Telebelts® and trailer-mounted concrete pumps to factory standards

A few of Putzmeister Pro-Tech’s web site features include:
•An easy-to-use Equipment Finder, which allows visitors to customize their search for used equipment by type, brand, stock number, model, year range and model class. Site users can search for exactly what they have in mind or set the parameters to view Pro-Tech’s complete inventory.

•If a customer wants to request more information on a specific piece of equipment, they can complete an online form and email it to Pro-Tech. A representative from Pro-Tech will contact them immediately.

•The web site allows the customer to sign up for E-Tracker, an e-mail alert system that notifies subscribers to availability of used equipment they may be interested in. This includes models recently taken in trade from Putzmeister that are already in stock or will be arriving soon.

Launched in January 2008, Allentown’s web site, www.allentownshotcrete.com, which already includes product information and model and application photos for the company’s full line of wet- and dry-process equipment for the refractory, underground, mortar and civil industries, has added a new feature as well.

“We’ve added an extensive Accessories page to our site,” says Bill Allen, international business development manager for Allentown. “It’s important for us to feature our accessories on the site so we can educate our customers on what accessories are best to pair with their Allentown equipment. Using Allentown accessories and equipment together will ultimately enhance our customers’ performance and experience on the job site.”

Content on the new Accessories page includes: Hose & Couplings, Nozzles, Reducers & Pipeline, Clamps, Water Booster Pumps, Pumping Agents and Special Accessories.
