STURTEVANT, WI (February 15, 2010) – Kicking off the World of Concrete 2010, Putzmeister America, Inc. celebrated the achievements of its distributors in 2009 at a reception in TAO Asian Bistro and Nightclub (TAO) at The Venetian® Las Vegas.
Held Monday, February 1st, Putzmeister America and their distributors enjoyed elegant food, drinks, musical entertainment and the distributor awards presentation in TAO.
Putzmeister America President and CEO, Dave Adams, started things off with introductory remarks.
“Thank you for being here tonight,” says Adams. “We are thrilled that despite these uncertain times you’ve chosen to move forward with us into 2010 with an even stronger, more optimistic outlook than ever before. We want to applaud each and every one of you, our distributors, tonight for your unwavering loyalty to Putzmeister, and your determination through these hard times.”
Chairman of Putzmeister Supervisory Board and KS Foundation, Karl Schlecht, also said a few words.
“50 years ago I made my first trip to the United States - I can hardly believe that 50 years have passed already. To observe how we’ve all worked tirelessly together, side-by-side, to help make Putzmeister global organization is a true inspiration for generations to come. We thank you, our distributors, as Putzmeister would not be what it is without you. We look forward in continuing to work with you towards your successes in the next 50 years and beyond.”
First to be commended for their 2009 achievements was Daniel and Peter Mamopulakos of Elevadores Y Bombedoras C.A. for outstanding sales in Thom-Katts ® in 2009.
For outstanding sales in large line equipment in 2009 was Francis Gagnier of Pompaction, Inc.
“Even though this past year has been a struggle for all of us, these select distributors didn’t give up, kept their nose to the grind stone, and saw the fruits of their labor in their machine sales,” comments Adams.
In addition, several companies were honored with length of service awards, which recognize longevity as Putzmeister America distributors. Recognized for 20 years of service were: Advance Equipment Co., Construmac S.A. and L & E Concrete Pumping, Inc.
“It’s been a joy working with all of our distributors,” notes Adams. “Congratulations to each and every one of you for your milestones this past year and we look forward to seeing you at World of Concrete 2011.”
Adams also paid tribute to the late Dave Rudin, a long-time employee of Putzmeister America and dedicated advocate to the concrete construction industry.
“While we celebrate tonight, we need to also remember our dear friend and colleague, Dave Rudin who passed away last September. I know Dave meant a lot to all of us, his dedication to the concrete construction industry was immeasurable.”
