Nature of business
Brundage-Bone and Camfaud are concrete pumping service providers in the United States ("U.S.") and United Kingdom (“U.K.”), respectively. Their core business is the provision of concrete pumping services to general contractors and concrete finishing companies in the commercial, infrastructure and residential sectors. Most often equipment returns to a “home base” nightly and neither company contracts to purchase, mix, or deliver concrete. Brundage-Bone has
80branch locations across
22states. Camfaud has
29branch locations throughout the U.K., with its corporate headquarters in Epping (near London), England.
Eco-Pan provides industrial cleanup and containment services, primarily to customers in the construction industry. Eco-Pan uses containment pans specifically designed to hold waste products from concrete and other industrial cleanup operations. Eco-Pan has
16operating locations across the U.S. with its corporate headquarters in Denver, Colorado.
The Company’s sales are historically seasonal, with lower revenue in the
firstquarter and higher revenue in the
fourthquarter of each year. Such seasonality also causes the Company’s working capital cash flow requirements to vary from quarter to quarter and primarily depends on the variability of weather patterns with the Company generally having lower sales volume during the winter and spring months.
