David Fields (Sales Department, East Knoxville) recently traveled to Saudi Arabia to complete the delivery of three new machines with modifications that were designed and built by Stowers Machinery. David’s trip lasted eight days, including a full day of travel time in each direction.
During his time in Saudi Arabia, David trained the operators from Alcoa/MA’Aden (which leases the machines) and then worked with mechanics from Al-Shuwayer Son Co. (who provide the maintenance for the machines). David said the group he worked with was like a melting pot of nationalities, including American, British, African, Saudi, and Indian citizens, just to name a few. Adds a new twist on the idea of playing with tractors in the sandbox, doesn’t it?
