AmeraMex CEO Lee Hamre commented, “Approximately two months ago we purchased 18 large container handlers. To date, we have transferred all of the handlers to our refurbishing facility in Chico and the first two machines have been refurbished and shipped to a customer. With 16 handlers remaining, our shop will be diligently working throughout the winter months as we build our inventory of refurbished container handlers for transporting both loaded and unloaded containers. We expect to keep our sales people busy finding buyers for the equipment.”
Hamre continued, “As seen in our third quarter gross profit margins, refurbished equipment carries much better margins than new equipment and with an increasing inventory of refurbished equipment, we expect to finish the year with a strong fourth quarter and continue the trend into 2014. Recent contact with our potential North African customer indicates that we are closing in on our first large contract in Africa. The management team is excited about the growth and future of the company and we all look forward to discussing 2014 plans in a January 2014 conference call.”
