Optimistic Outlook in the Equipment Rental Market

2 Apr, 2015
TyrFil at the ARA Rental Show

ArncoPathway exhibited at the ARA Rental Show in New Orleans, La. The Show featured an exhibit floor with more than 675 exhibitors, rental store attendees as well as manufacturers and suppliers who were more confident than in years past. Rental store attendees are starting again to grow their fleets and expand their businesses by opening new locations.

After experiencing growth over the last few years, there was a general feeling that better days are ahead, leading to a successful show both from the buyer and seller perspectives. The Show saw increased traffic and manufacturers and suppliers state that they were receiving a lot of orders on the show floor. Construction forecasts support this optimistic outlook and are projecting solid growth for 2015 and 2016 in the 8% to 10% range.

“Everything at the show was working at the highest level this year. There was interest in equipment, purchasing of equipment, great networking and great attitudes from all attendees, including rental stores, manufacturers, suppliers and exhibitors. There is a wonderfully optimistic outlook for the future of the equipment rental industry, short-term and long-term,” said Christine Wehrman, ARA’s executive vice president and CEO.

ArncoPathway is looking forward to next year’s show in Atlanta, Ga to continue to educate the marketplace on why It’s What’s Inside that Counts and gain additional qualified leads for our National Certified Dealer Network. TyrFil does more than just flat proof tires. TyrFil is the only sustainable flatproofing solution that reduces costs, increases productivity, and promotes operator safety.

ArncoPathway exhibits at TIA OTR Conference

2 Mar, 2015

Last week, ArncoPathway attended the 60th Anniversary Off-the-Road Tire Conference in Arizona where very interesting ideas were heard ranging from Fred Taylor’s informative talk about their new tire recycling venture, Green Carbon, Inc (who knew that large mining tires contained up to 650 gallons of oil and on a 63”, this new system can extract almost 500 gallons for reuse) to an extraordinary keynote address by Captain Mark Kelly and his wife Congresswoman Gabby Giffords.

While all in attendance wished more demand for OTR tires, the future for construction and rental markets in the USA remains strong for 2015.

Road Sweeper – No Downtime in Las Vegas!

12 May, 2014

GCR Tires & Service in Las Vegas, NV recently experienced great success using TyrFil for a Barber Road Rake. The Road Rake is a pull behind Road Sweeper. Before using TyrFil, the operator experienced many flats and lots of downtime, resulting in lost productivity. The Tires on the vehicle are size 235/85R/16. The tires were filled with TyrFil G2 and recycled material.  Once they stated filling the tires at the GCR location in Las  Vegas, the end user reports that all tire related issues have been eliminated.

Bernardo Renteria, Supply Tech III for District I DOT for the State of Nevada said, “Once we started using TyrFil for these tires, we have zero issues. This is the only way to go with these sweepers.” It has been so successful; they have been filling these tires for the past 8 to 10 years

TLC maintains correct tire pressure on large forklifts!

1 Nov, 2013

Bearcat Tyres in Australia has been using Arnco’s TLC product since 2010. One of the first applications was to solve the problem of high pressure leaks for a fleet of large container forklift trucks. Each forklift was fitted with 6 pieces of 18.00 – 25 40 ply Ceat L-4S smooth tread tyres 4 tyres on the drive and 2 tyres on the steer, operating at 145 PSI air pressure.

The big problem at the railhead was the tyres were getting high pressure leaks and tyre pressure was dropping to 110 – 120 PSI as the personnel were not checking air pressure regularly and the tyres were becoming overloaded and the heat generation from this low pressure, internal air pressure during the hot summer months of 40 – 45 degrees C were as high as 185 PSI. The area that these trucks are operating are on pavers and one way travel is 1.2 kilometers so the distance traveled is large.

Thanks to Arnco’s TLC, this fleet of large forklifts are no longer leaking air and proper tire air pressure is maintained.

Arnco Upgrades Berea Production Facility

12 Oct, 2012

Plant’s improvements boost productivity 40 percent and produce significant energy savings.

South Gate, CA – Arnco, one of the world’s largest suppliers of specialty polyurethane products, announces numerous upgrades to its’ industry-leading production facility in Berea, Ohio.

“Arnco has always been known for our fast turnaround and excellent customer service,” said Joe Negrey, Arnco’s Vice President of Operations. “The improvement in capacity, sustainability and efficiency to our Berea factory allows us to grow along with the needs and demands of our customers as well as our sustainability efforts.”

To achieve this increase in production capacity, Arnco invested more than $500,000 and, over an 18 month period, installed new equipment and implemented a more streamlined manufacturing protocol. In addition, as a result of increasing demand for Ecofil–Arnco’s eco-friendly tire flat proofing product–an emphasis was placed on doubling that line’s production capacity.

The commitment to best practices also included total efficiency – optimizing all the resources involved in manufacturing. Daily energy usage at the Ohio plant was also decreased by implementing several innovative measures. Some of the highlights are:

  • The facility’s air compressor was replaced with a variable speed drive unit that reduces energy consumption 35 percent.
  • Climate control is 40 percent more efficient with a radiant heating system and giant ceiling fan.
  • An upgrade to LED lighting plus replacing existing skylights makes illumination 70 percent more efficient.
