The contractors that learn how to effectively integrate technology into every aspect of their business will dominate tomorrow.

All competitive equipment-intensive contractors have very robust maintenance shops with strong equipment managers, brilliant mechanics, and a support team. This keeps the equipment running productively.

These shops often have solid fabrication capabilities where they make modifications to the equipment and accessories specific to their work that maximizes efficiencies. This leads to higher profitability and a competitive advantage.
