Interview video - how his company benefits from Linde trucks
The US construction industry is booming. The building materials manufacturer Brendan Quinn is right in the middle of it – and knows that he can count on KION’s products.
Brendan Quinn, Ernest Maier Block's CEO, on how his company benefits from Linde trucks.
The red truck is covered in so much dust that you can hardly make out the Linde logo.
With a pallet of heavy cement blocks on its forklift, the truck rolls across the yard at Ernest Maier Block, a manufacturer of concrete blocks in Bladensburg in the US state of Maryland. Driver Jerome Chew skilfully places the pallet on the wide bed of a delivery truck, then steers the forklift towards his next load. 'Lindy', as Chew and his colleagues affectionately call the forklift truck, stirs up concrete dust with its tyres. Thudding noises come from the machines in the open building across the yard, where the compressor hisses and the cement conveyor clatters away. This Ernest Maier factory alone produces between ten and eleven million concrete blocks every year. Following the economic difficulties of the financial crisis, the construction boom now taking place in the USA needs materials to keep it going.
