The Rental Show 2014 wrapped up last week and it was one of our best trade shows yet.
First, KOR-IT thanks everyone who supported our booth at the show and purchased our products for your core drill rentals for your rental stores. Your continued support is truly appreciated and we want you to know we will always support the rental industry. Over the last four years, KOR-IT has sponsored the “Lunch with ARA” where American Rental Association Executives recognize key volunteer leaders within the Association and the ARA Foundation. We hope you enjoyed the food and great company at your table!
Ever since KOR-IT became an Associate Member of the American Rental Association, KOR-IT has supported the ARA’s Charitable “ARA Foundation” by donating some of our most popular core drill rental products. These included the K-806 core drill rental package, a 3 speed hand held core drill with core drill stand, plus concrete core bits. The ARA Foundation has a fun charity auction which raises tens of thousands of dollars in order to award more than $56,000 in educational scholarships each year. It helps individuals in the rental industry who have been impacted by disasters such as hurricanes, floods or fires. The ARA Foundation provides advice and mentoring by experienced rental professionals.
Upon review of our data from the trade show, it appears that approximately 50% of our booth visitors were new, whereas 50% of our visitors were rental stores who have purchased our core drills for their rental fleets in prior years. This proves our core drills are tough enough for the rental environment. It also proves our rental store clientele are reaping incredible returns on their investments into our core drill rental products.
Another big hit at this year’s booth was our array of diamond blades for the rental fleet. We now carry a great line of general purpose and premium diamond blades for concrete, asphalt, brick, block, ductile iron, and more. Click here for more info
Aside from working at the trade show booth selling core drills and core drill bits to rental stores, KOR-IT personnel did get a chance to blow off some steam with other Rental Association members at the private ARA event at Sea World. Check out our faces on the Manta roller coaster, that was a blast!
