Rodney Smith, Chairman and CEO stated, “As we reported in the first two quarters of 2012, to offset potential losses in 2012, the Company enacted layoffs and salary reductions at its main production facility in Midland, VA. In addition, the Company was in a unique position to provide barrier, installation and removal services for three jobs which included the NATO Summit in Chicago and the Republican and Democratic national conventions held in Tampa, FL and Charlotte, NC. There is virtually no other company in the United States that could have provided these services on such extremely short notice and with the expertise and knowledge required by these services. At this time, Smith-Midland and Easi-Set Worldwide, your licensing company, are introducing simultaneously to all 50 states and our 37 licensed JJ Hooks producers throughout North America the Precast industries two newest and most important product offerings in the Highway Safety Arena, the ultra-demanding crash tested (MASH TL-3) Bolt Down and the Pinned Down JJ Hooks Precast Concrete barrier. No other Precast companies in North America can offer this patented, crash tested, lowest cost to produce and the lowest cost to install and remove, bolted bridge barrier and pinned down construction cut barrier (where the earth may be cut out two or three feet deep to allow rebuilding of road sub base). When crash tested, these two products deflected less than any other known Bolted or Pinned Precast Barrier. Low deflection is a much sought after and highly desirable feature/benefit for Federal Highway and State Departments of Transportation projects. The market for these two new products will greatly enhance and strengthen the J-J Hooks national and international licensing program, with accompanying increases in licensing revenue. These projects are examples of the Smith-Midland commitment to diversification that continues to set it apart from the rest of the Precast Industry”. Smith-Midland develops, manufactures, licenses, rents, and sells a broad array of precast concrete products for use primarily in the construction, transportation and utilities Industries.
