Members of the Masonry/Hardscape Sales Team gathered in Alpena for a three-day training session at the World Center for Concrete Technology in early November. Duane Rondeau, Executive Director of Sales for Masonry/Hardscape, organized a busy schedule that included a comprehensive review of the Servopac Family of Machines, product line updates, an overview of our manufacturing processes, a review of our new internal processes, an update on our upcoming trade shows, and an overview of Pipe and Precast business and product line. Several presentations from our Alliance Partners, including Hydronix, Slab Innovations, Voeller Mixers, Standley Batch Systems and Egan Company provided valuable information to the group.

Sharing information through lively discussion is an important benefit of in-person meetings. Interactive communication is much more effective than is achieved on a conference call. The team participated in a Shareholders Meeting, hosted by the Employee Ownership Committee (ESOP), where they were able to test their ESOP knowledge with a game of Jeopardy. For many, it was the first time receiving their ESOP Certificate in person. Another benefit of being in Alpena was the opportunity to meet new co-workers from throughout the company.
