Ellicott Dredges is reporting strong sales efforts over the past 15 months with shipments of dozens of dredges to more than a dozen countries. Ellicott considers an outstanding aspect of this performance to be its exceptionally strong sales to the U.S. market, particularly for dredging contractors.
Since the beginning of 2014, Ellicott has delivered a substantial number of dredges to U.S. customers, with two more custom units for a marsh restoration project funded by the U.S. Department of the Interior due to ship during the first half of 2015. Of the U.S. deliveries to date, two are new 20-in. (500 mm) dredges for dredging contractors in Louisiana and Texas, while three new 18-in. (450 mm) units went to contractors in New Jersey, Michigan and Iowa.
Paul Quinn, vice president of sales for Ellicott, said that "our service and support are great, our service guys are well-trained and field-orientated, and we carry a huge inventory of spare parts to support our equipment."
