As the equipment is refurbished, it is being shipped to U.S. and international customers. The retail value of this equipment is approximately $1.8 million. The second phase containing newer equipment will begin shipping to AmeraMex, as current inventory is depleted. The second phase has a retail value of approximately $3.0 million.

“Everyone is curious about the company’s African projects, and it will not be much longer before we can make some very positive announcements,” commented AmeraMex CEO Lee Hamre. “All of the projects that we have discussed are moving forward with finalization on some of them in the near future.
“While we don’t know if there is a double-dip recession looming, we can tell our shareholders that we are experiencing a sharp increase in our trucking business and equipment rental business,” continued Hamre. “With increasing U.S. sales, an inventory of used equipment that is in demand and our projected pipeline in Africa, we are confident AmeraMex offers significant potential to its shareholders.”
