As the 2014 president of the Tennessee Road Builders Association (TRBA), Wes Stowers was featured on the cover and in the pages of the March/April 2014 issue of Tennessee Road Builder magazine. In a feature article about Wes Stowers and the history of Stowers Machinery Corporation, Wes addressed the importance of Tennessee’s road building industry and the challenges facing the industry at both the state and national levels.
“Our society has to grow crops and materials; mine minerals and aggregate; manufacture machines and other products; construct roads, buildings, and infrastructure; and transport people and goods,” Wes Stowers said in his address. “The companies in the TRBA are all deeply involved in one of more of these necessary pursuits that are essential to every prosperous society. TRBA member companies are net producers who are at the heart of our state’s economy.”
