We have worked together for over 20 years, and our skills complement each other. We are a small staff with 24 employees between our Lincoln, Ark., and Cassville, Mo., locations. In addition, 16 of us have more than 10 years experience in the field which means a broad depth of knowledge useful to our customers. Our sub-contractors have years of experience in construction and installation in our industry.”
Products and Services: Leslie explained, “We are authorized distributors for a wide range of companies including Cumberland, Rotem, Roxell, Plasson, Big Dutchman and Valco. We offer onsite supervision for all stages of equipment installation and also install water, gas, plumbing and electrical services as well as generator sales and service. This diversity cuts out the need for independent contractors for each service, saving customers’ time as well as money. We also offer new build and retrofit construction according to the integrator’s specifications. We call upon our 30 years of experience and relationships with lumber mills, and metal and equipment manufacturers, again with onsite supervision for all stages of construction and pay attention to the latest advancements in construction and technology in order to produce the most structurally sound and energy-efficient houses possible. In addition, we carry a full line of parts and have a 24-hour reputable and reliable service department. We work with environmental controllers, feed delivery and water systems, evaporating cooling systems and ventilation systems. We also offer preventative maintenance service to help prevent costly repairs in the future. In order to fulfill the service needs of our customers, we have five full time service technicians and use the latest technology for the highest quality repair and quickest turnaround possible.”
