It serves the Michigan Department of Transporta- tion and Ohio Department of Transportation, and commercial organizations, with aggregates materials designed for high- ways, parking lots, driveways, and other applications. "Stoneco uses the Kespry system monthly at all of our oper- ations for inventory management and it has allowed us to increase our accuracy, and have same day results," said Austin Fisher, assistant operations manager and quality control manager, Stoneco of Michigan. "The speed of obtaining data from the Kespry system has allowed us to tweak changes to our operations days faster than old methods, providing us with virtual real-time inventory checks that increase our operations' efficiencies." "The Kespry aerial intelligence platform delivers a single source of truth for aggregates companies' worksite data," said George Mathew, CEO and chairman, Kespry. "Our 170 aggregates customers are all experiencing the unprecedented benefit of survey-grade, aerial topographic data that enables them to accurately define volumes for stockpiles, blasting and stripping. It easily and rapidly enables them to take that data and use it to calculate volumes, manage material, create inventory reports, and validate or update design plans. We're extremely pleased so many companies are reaping such sig- nificant benefits from our platform." Kespry, Major Wire Industries Major welcomed attendees to its booth to learn about maximizing their production and profit potential by using FLEX-MAT High Vibration Wire Screens. Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing André Mathieu and Vice President of North American Sales Jimmy Siler were on-hand to speak to customers. FLEX-MAT high-vibration wire screens have individual wires that vibrate independently at a high-frequency of between 6,000 to 10,000 strokes per minute. FLEX-MAT accelerates the stratification process and allows more material to pass through the screen. Major ensures optimum wire quality and consistency at all times by developing, (through its own specifications and internal laboratory quality controls), the best recipe for a wire's chemical content to optimize all factors, and by using the most advanced patented wire-making process, Major also only uses the highest quality of stainless steel wires with the highest tensile strength, available in Type 304 and Type 316. FLEX-MAT vibrating wire screens will provide more spec product at a lower operating cost, while delivering more wear life and eliminating blinding, pegging and clogging issues, the company said. Major Wire Industries, McLanahan At a press event held at its booth, McLanahan President Sean McLanahan talked about the company's growth and how it can meet the challenges of aggregates producers. "Today more than ever, producers want to know they have a partner in those challenges – whether that be someone to assist in turnkey plant set or to be there to troubleshoot when things go wrong," he said. "More and more, that is what we're trying to develop – whether through our process engineer- ing team or a dealer network that is focused on keeping you running with local service and support. "We are also focused on sites that want quick set-up and delivery," he said. "We continue to be excited about the growth the aggregate industry is seeing and look forward to what the coming years are going to bring." Mark Krause, managing director – North America for McLa- nahan, added, "Obviously, a lot of our success here in Texas has come from our strong reputation in the frac sand market in places like Wisconsin and Minnesota, but it also comes
