Are Gushing Repair Costs Your Biggest Profit Leak?

$145,000 in profit was lost to rising equipment costs for the average company in 2013.

Demand is up, building staff is challenging and your equipment is working at maximum capacity. The high demand on equipment means keeping it in good working order has become one of your biggest profit leaks—and it shows on your P&L.

Exciting News

This bill rights the wrong of the 2004 JOBS Act that indirectly prevented concrete pumps from maintaining their previous fuel tax exemption by applying a 7500 miles per year prerequisite.
