“Last year we announced our agreement with Oshkosh Defense, LLC. It has taken time to become familiar with the line tactical vehicles and determine decision makers within our target markets as political teams can rapidly change,” said AmeraMex CEO Lee Hamre. “We extended invitations to potential customers and now have visits and demonstrations scheduled at the Oshkosh facility. We continue to believe our agreement with Oshkosh Defense, LLC, is a catalyst for international sales growth.”
Last week, AmeraMex received three equipment orders totaling approximately $800,000. Those orders consisted of four loaded container handlers shipping to a customer in the Northwest, a Taylor forklift fitted with a hydraulic hay squeezer capable of carrying up to four tons of hay for a California customer and ASV construction equipment for a West Coast customer.
AmeraMex sells, leases and rents heavy equipment to companies within multiple industries including construction, logistics, mining and lumber.
