3/12/12 - Lexington Site Manager, Billy Meade, and Corporate Sales Manager, Starling Johnson, just returned from Japan where they were able to see Johnson Concrete's new machine in action! The Tiger TG-Series machine has been built, assembled, and is in the final stages of engineering and testing. After inspecting the machine and watching it generate a few pallets of block, Billy and Starling had the privilege of touring Tiger's production facility in Okayama with President Kitahara. They were blown away by the efficiency, innovation, and professionalism of the Tiger team; it is truly a world class operation. Our friends in Japan will soon disassemble the machine and package it for a March 21 shipment to the US.
