50 YEARS OF INNOVATION, Part 7
So, what will we do after celebrating 50 years in business in 2022?
“People have asked us what we have in the works,” said Jerr-Dan senior product specialist Andrew Stevens. “Obviously, that is a question I am not free to answer in any detail. But I can tell you that we are committed to improving existing models—the updated JD25 is one recent example. And we are committed to listening to our customers’ needs. Those are the conversations that end up as the inspiration for exciting new product developments.”
Chief Engineer Sanjeev Kuriakose also addressed Jerr-Dan’s future goals. “Besides building equipment that works as hard as our customers do, we want to promote the hardworking men and women of this industry so they get the respect they deserve and are seen and treated as professionals. There are a lot of owners and operators out there leading the way, and we want to do whatever we can to aid them. We believe proper training is the key. It’s more than promoting Jerr-Dan Equipment. It’s about helping towers work smarter, safer, and getting them home to enjoy their families when the work is done.”
No one can foretell the future of the economy, let alone the future of a particular company. The Great Recession and COVID-19 have provided recent and stark examples of this truth. However, it is possible to make projections based on past performance. On that basis, it is not hard to look forward to Jerr-Dan’s 75th and 100th anniversaries.
We invite you to come along with us on that journey!
