09 May 2016 Ceco Builder Meeting Recap
On behalf of everyone at Ceco, we’d like to thank our community of builders who joined us for the 2016 Ceco National Builder meeting in Punta Cana last month. The Paradisus Real was a great resort for all of our builders to mingle.
Below are some highlights and key information covered. Continue reading for a quick refresher on everything discussed.
We support each other and we are committed to creating a team that outperforms year in and out.
Your District Sales Manager
The DSM provides service to both internal and external customers at every point of the sale. They service, maintain and grow relationships with existing Ceco builders, while actively growing open markets within their territory. They serve as a technical advisors to you, the builder, and their organization.
Hard bid, design build, or a negotiated project, the DSM works with you to sell the job by price and offering solutions to help secure the job for our team.
We are optimistic for 2016 with industry leaders predicting growth opportunities for the year. Our 2016 forecasts show a 6% increase in steel tons produced and a 7.5% increase in revenue. Quote activity has remained strong and all regions are reporting demand and good opportunities for the future.
Looking back at 2015, the collapse of the oil and gas market, the drop in agricultural commodities, and continued slide of steel prices translated to slower sales.
Ceco produced approximately the same amount tons of steel year over year, but with the value of steel decreasing, revenue for 2015 was decreased compared to 2014.
