<br /> MARCH 2018<br /> White logo is below<br /> A MESSAGE FROM<br /> THE PRESIDENT<br /> Dan Stracener<br /> Construction<br /> remains<br /> in positive<br /> territory<br /> 2<br /> Dear Valued Customer:<br /> Economists and industry organizations predict further strength in<br /> construction throughout 2018. Many see growth across several market<br /> sectors, and if Congress delivers on new infrastructure legislation, that<br /> would also add to the positive outlook. At TEC, we are hopeful that<br /> will be the case.<br /> Growth in the construction industry means more machinery in<br /> the field. TEC is aligned with great manufacturers who we believe<br /> engineer and build the best equipment in the industry. Komatsu is a<br /> perfect example. No other company can match its intelligent Machine<br /> Control dozers and excavators, which are making businesses like<br /> yours more productive, efficient and profitable.
