AmeraMex International Expands Inventory of Container Handlers for Marketing into Developing Countries
CHICO, CA — March 31, 2008 — AmeraMex International, Inc. (OTC: AMMX), a provider of heavy equipment to shipping, construction, logging and mining companies, today announced that it has purchased a $1.2 million package of loaded container handlers for export through its network of international heavy equipment distributors.
“Our largest customers in the United States are logistic support companies,” said AmeraMex CEO and President Lee Hamre. “When replacing their container handlers with new EPA Tier III compliant models, we can now provide an outlet for the used handlers that is financially beneficial to our customers and provides much needed container handlers to logistics companies in developing countries that have limited access to quality used equipment.”
The container handlers, which will be completely refurbished at the company’s Chico, California facilities, are used by logistic support companies for the loading and unloading of containers from ships, trains or trucks.
According to Hamre, the company expects to have purchase orders for the refurbished handlers within the next two months.
