Meetings reignite camaraderie and demonstrate successes of entire Acrow team
(Parsippany, New Jersey) – 24 March 2017 – Acrow Bridge, a leading international bridge engineering and supply company, held its three-day Annual General Meeting from 13 to 15 March at its global headquarters. Despite a significant late winter snowstorm that deposited more than 24 inches (60 cm) in parts of the greater New York City region, more than 60 of the Acrow team were present for the meeting, many having traveled internationally to be present.
Among the presentations over the three days, Bill Killeen, President and CEO, provided a full overview of Acrow including historical background and future directions the company will take; Robert Russo, CFO, provided a financial outlook with historical references; Mark Joosten, COO, discussed ongoing business; Paul Sullivan, VP International Business Development, discussed plans for the international markets; Eugene Sobecki, National Sales Manager, discussed business in the U.S.; and Ken Scott, President, Acrow Limited, provided a comprehensive review of Canadian opportunities. Chris Holcombe, President of Milton Steel, Acrow’s manufacturing company, provided projections on capital expenditures through 2018, and many of the team spoke and shared their insights.
“This was a fabulous three days. The ideas that were shared in presentations or informally are already being implemented,” said Killeen. “It is an immense privilege to work with all of the Acrow team members. Each member is without a doubt the catalyst and inspiration that motivates me each day to do my best. I am proud of and inspired by the Acrow production and manufacturing team based at our factory in Milton, Pennsylvania, where the finest workers manufacture modular steel bridges of outstanding quality, allowing us to compete aggressively with bridges from any other country on the global stage.”
Acrow is a leading global supplier of modular steel bridges, with thousands of bridges supplied to customers in over 80 countries across North America, South America, Africa, and Asia.
All Acrow components are fabricated in the U.S. in a controlled environment, under the certification of four highly comprehensive Quality Assurance Systems – the international standard ISO9001, the American Institute for Steel Construction (AISC) for Major Advanced Bridges with a Fracture Critical Endorsement, the American Welding Society certification, and the European CE system. Acrow uses high strength, high quality U.S. steel from ISO-certified mills and galvanizes the steel at ISO-certified vendors to protect against corrosion. The components are then shipped to the customer project site or to a storage location where they are repackaged for shipment to bridge job sites followed by fast and easy installations, often as quickly as 3 to 5 days.
“We are grateful to all of our customers, whether domestically or internationally, and it is an honor to be of service to them,” Killeen added. “Bridges are fundamental around the globe, connecting people, families, communities and businesses and acting as a building block to the expansion of prosperity at individual and macro levels.”
